We’re delighted to announce today’s release of These Roots Know No Boundaries, the debut album from Manchester duo Sphelm.

Initially a solo project from Mike McKnight (ex-Cyril Snear) as a creative outlet to explore a different side of his musical personality, with guitarist and keyboard player Tim Powell joining after initial shows, Sphelm have been quietly building a following across the North West of England while working on this release.

The band describe themselves as “electronic/twin guitar crossover, laden with soundscapes, beautiful guitar and vocal harmonies, set within digital space”, and like so much great music they totally defy easy categorisation. It’s not prog, it’s not indie, it’s not rock, it’s not Intelligent Dance Music, it’s Sphelm.

An early review has hailed the album as a “a highly refined, well thought out melodic journey and one that distinctly deserves exploring” (Ed Sprake, Echoes And Dust).

These Roots Know No Boundaries is available from the BEM store, both as a Digipak CD with artwork by Tim Powell and Stefan Hepe, and as a high-quality download.
