The Good Minus are an all-singing, instrument-swapping power trio. Their songs feature intricate three-part vocal harmonies with a style described as Grizzly Bear reimagining the songs of Elbow.
Matt Welch, David Kean and Stu Hazelman blend wildly different influences to create multi-layered arrangements, with obscure yet groove-laden time signatures.
Their debut album was released in October 2019.
"Rich with vocal harmonies and multi-layered arrangements, the release breathes new life into angular prog pop."
"(The Good Minus) have succeeded in creating a perfect indie song.”
- We Love That Sound
“A gorgeous piece with faultless production and a great sonic mix of musicians… a stunning piece of work.”
"Lush harmonies…. Johnny Greenwood/Radiohead-esque lead guitar parts.”
- Divide and Conquer Music
“Post-rock or math rock…. you'll gather within a few seconds that these are intricate arrangements that suggest a cerebral mind behind them… folky voices emerged and did nothing to knock the gracious momentum off its stride. A strong live presence going by this showing, a real band in the throes of creation.”
