Summer Festival Shows


We’re happy to announce a run of summer festival dates. This season will see us travel to some new countries for the first time, notably Egypt, Finland and Sweden. We also return to Croatia (this time for the excellent Soundwave Festival) and the Czech Republic, where we always enjoy going.

We also play our annual Edinburgh Jazz Festival show, and are delighted to invite friend and collaborator Floex over from Prague to join us. This one will be one of the summer highlights for sure. For other UK dates we again link up with our friends at Chai Wallahs for shows at Sunrise, Kendal Calling and Greenman.

We’ll also be announcing a full European tour in the Autumn, keep your ears to the ground!

Spring Gigs

Hi everyone, and apologies for the lack of fresh news of late. We came off a very enjoyable and successful European tour back in March and have been busy working on completing the next album, which, with any luck, will see the light of day in the Autumn. We’ve got a few UK and European Festival dates lined up – some are on our calender now, and some are still to be confirmed. But for now we are warming up for the summer with some gigs in Edinburgh, Brighton and London at the end of April and start of May. We’ll be playing some of the new material that went down very well in Europe, so we hope to see some friendly faces in the audience.

autumn-tour-eflyer-jpeg soundcrash-daedelus_-a5-flyer-01

The dust has only just settled on a hectic season of summer festivals, but this week sees us resume life on the road with a trio of exciting shows in Leipzig, Nottingham and London. In particular the show in London for our friends Soundcrash at the opulent Koko venue is going to be a highlight of the year no doubt, as we are sharing the stage with electronic music legends Luke Vibert and Daedelus. Even better, Daedelus is bringing his new AV show to London for the first time – called Archimedes – it consists of banks of mirrors that reflect light in time with the beats – check it out here.

Please note we are on-stage at 9.30pm for this gig.

Remember to keep checking our dates page to keep up-to-date with our live touring, and we hope to see you at one of these shows over the autumn.
