A night of cutting edge alternative electronic music featuring the techno-industrialism of tAngerinecAt, the magical sounds of The Dyr Sister and the kosmiche electronics of Azyss.
The huge many faceted sound of a virtuously played hurdy-gurdy with effect pedals, fierce yet tender vocals, personal political lyrics, floaty whistles, massive drone bass & field recordings seamlessly combine with industrial-techno beats in an utterly captivating show.
After forming in Ukraine in 2008 where they toured extensively drawing crowds of several hundred, tAngerinecAt went on to tour further afield in Russia and later Wales and UK
‘…this is some of the most powerful music I have heard in a long time, and holds a message too… difficult to believe there were only two musicians on stage.’ – LOUDER THAN WAR
“tAngerinecAt’s brought not just synth to the table, but a whole range of physical, classical instruments into the mix – most noticeably their use of the hurdy-gurdy, to make their music the deep notes of severe doom and dread that gave it the feeling of a rave in a mausoleum. tAngerinecAt know a lot about their showmanship… This band lived up to everything I’ve heard about them, and I’m excited to foray deeper into their music.” – LEFTLION
Featured on BBC 3 and BBC 6
