Portico Quartet

Mercury Prize-nominated Portico Quartet have always been an impossible band to pin down. Sending out echoes of jazz, electronica, ambient music and minimalism, the group have created their own singular, cinematic sound over the course of four albums, from their 2007 debut Knee-Deep in the North Sea to Live/Remix in 2013. Now rebooted as a quartet after a brief spell as the three-piece Portico, the group will perform material from their August 25 Gondwana Records release, Art In The Age Of Automation alongside back-catalogue favourites.

Support from British singer-songwriter Daudi Matsiko, who builds confessional lyrics, fingerpicked guitar and hints of saxophone and synth into gently swelling textures.

This is a standing show.
