Ist Ist are a post punk band emanating from Greater Manchester, gaining increased popularity throughout the Manchester scene with some exhilarating and memorable gigs at the likes of the Ritz, Deaf institute and Gorilla. They’ve released several singles before releasing their debut album ‘Architecture’ in 2020. The album came out to monumental reviews and is a beautiful yet brutal piece of post modern music. Ist Ist, are regularly condemned as far too ‘out there’ to be successful; through sheer determination, hard work and a bulging catalogue of songs, Ist Ist continue to silence the doubters and move from strength to strength. They display an arrogance akin to the greatest Manchester bands, constructing their own mold rather than attempting to fit into one. It’s definitely maybe time to listen.
