This third album from Aberdeen post-hardcore trio Carson Wells.
From their roots in mathy screamo, to their sophomore LP, 'Tread A Northern Path', Carson Wells has evolved considerably during their near decade as a band. No Relic continues to push their music in new directions, as arguably their most surprising release to date.
At 6-songs, certain authorities might consider it too short for the ‘long-play’ tag, yet, at thirty minutes it outruns their debut album, the nine track 'Wonderkid'. A nod to some of the influences on the record - particularly black metal and prog rock, the sprawling compositions on 'No Relic' stand as a testament to the expanded horizons of the trio’s songwriting.
