Errors call themselves post-electro, and they certainly wouldn't be making any errors whatsoever in doing so. They mix clean, concise post-rock with bassy post-punk and a new rave electro sound not too far from Crystal Castles or The Whip. The result is a chrome finish of atmospheric electropop music, rattled with complex build-ups, Holy Fuck glitch drumming and electro-drones reminiscent of fellow Scots Meursault (original posts). The music is instrumental (as with a lot of post-rock), and clearcut, with every melody distinct and full.
Errors only formed off the back of a three-track demo recorded in member Simon Ward's bedroom in 2004, but were quickly taken under the wing of huge post-rock act Mogwai, and signed to the Rock Action label alongside Part Chimp.

I have to say their date at the Talking Heads Southampton (15/4) is looking tempting, if i had the money..
