Not so much a country but a place. Algiers are two, spawned from two groups of more, born in Sheffield with roots which extend to Manchester and Middlesbrough.

Both on hiatus from their older musical ventures, John and William enrolled to study at university in Sheffield. A chance meeting in May 2011 led to one rehearsal which turned into 4 months of collaboration.

It would be churlish to say they've cherry picked the best parts of post punk pop from the last ten years. What they've amalgamated from their influences is something both heady and visceral. A sound that feels weightless and timeless. Reference points are far and wide with some already likening the wandering guitars and heart on sleeve vocals to everyone from Phoenix to Death Cab.

But there's much more to these two. The 'Four Priests' EP is the culmination of a few months in a rehearsal room which now serves notice for something much more; Bright futures and even brighter melodies.
