Manchester-based leftfield piano trio perform music from their latestBlue Note Records release A Humdrum Star (Feb 9 2018). Their music has been described as acoustic-electronica but they draw equally on rock, jazzand minimalism, game soundtracks and glitchy-electronica to create their unique music. It’s music for the heart, head and feet and saw their album v2.0(Gondwana Records) named a Mercury Prizealbum of the year 2014 alongside albums from Damon Albarn, Young Fathers and Jungle. In 2015 they signed to Blue Note Recordsand released the album Man Made Object in 2016. More recently they have been touring their own score to Godfrey Reggio’s cult filmKoyaanisqatsi.

“the Radiohead of British jazz” (Line of Best Fit)

“Lilting, swelling, pulsing ... recalls the intricacy of Aphex Twin or Four Tet” (The 4O5)

"powered by fluttering, junglist drums, slithering bass lines and an increasing bank of Eno-esque digital manipulations. Hypnotic stuff." (The Guardian)
