There’s something about prog and its place in the world that fosters a healthy siege mentality. Many a band from other genres, faced with such fearsome adversity as being dropped from a label, getting a lukewarm review online or losing the use of their dad’s private underground gymnasium as a rehearsal space, would quickly split up, jack it in or develop a radical new identity as a grime-influenced synth duo.
