After a very successful and busy first show in Lancaster as part of their Spring 2018 tour tAngerinecAt return to The Yorkshire House to play alongside such amazing acts like The Dyr Sister and Oma Desala.
Independent review on Skiddle from the last tAngerinecAt gig at The Yorkshire House by John Hall: 'Really enjoyed last night, a great and varied bill of highly individual music, well organised, well attended. The sort of thing you'd be thrilled to wander into out of curiosity, so while it was good to be able to book it was also good to be able to just show up on spec. Great work all round.'
tAngerinecAt was formed in 2008 in Ukraine as a collaboration between Ukrainian born Eugene Purpurovsky and English born Paul Chilton. Their music absorbed the musical, poetic and social forms of Ukrainian and Soviet counterculture; the classical music skills, composition, directing and stage experience of Eugene as a singer, actor, poet and musician in solo and various musical projects - from classical to metal, since 1990, and his experience living in rough social and economic conditions and resisting authoritarian structures.
Together they traveled to remote places in the Carpathian Mountains gleaning from the local music culture. Add to this witches brew influences from EDM, blues, metal, art-rock.., and their persistent use of unusual musical instruments – most notably the hurdy-gurdy, - and you will get raw powerful cinematic and deeply atmospheric electronica with punk attitude that touches the inner most part of the human personality and is reminiscent of a tapestry with many different details.
They have four independently released, successfully selling albums that have had airplay on BBC 2, BBC 3 and BBC 6. The band has toured internationally in Ukraine, UK and Russia from 2010 and since relocating to UK in 2016 have quickly gained momentum, intensively touring with headline shows in London, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Manchester, Bristol, Brighton, Lancaster, Hull and nearly everywhere in between resulting in them having a large number of fans all over the UK and organize their own nomadic festival of unusual music called Cute Owl every season. They just released a long-awaited by their fans new album Many Kettles which is only available at their live shows at the moment.
'Watch out for: tAngerinecAt... this is some of the most powerful music I have heard in a long time...' - LOUDER THAN WAR
'I've never seen someone play a hurdy-gurdy so punk...'
- DEVIL’S DYKE NETWORK
“tAngerinecAt 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...”- LEFTLION
Hailing from the City of Hull, Sally Currie AKA The Dyr Sister is a multi-instrumental cervine beat mistress who conjures up surreal tales with the aid of viola, synth, mandolin, her voice and an array of DIY samples. Performing her catalogue of haunting, ethereal, modern day folk songs as a one-woman band she paints a fascinating canvas of sound.
Her original and innovative pieces are influenced by a wide range of genres from jungle and dubstep through trip hop and hip hop and ending somewhere deep amongst the many varieties of traditional folk music from around the world.
'Hulls own contemporary folk forerunner' - THE QUIETUS
“In the often homogenous world of underground music scenes, thank goodness for The Dyr Sister. The perfect blend of avant-garde, melodicism and out-thereness” - Mr Douglas Anderson – broadcaster, writer and filmmaker.
“The Dyr Sister is a rare artistic gem of contemporary folk talent!” - Jon Vyner – Tidal Concerts/The Camden Underworld
“The Dyr Sister sounds like some wonderful collaboration between Thom Yorke and Shirley Collins” – FRED PERRY SUBCULTURE
Experimental psych rock duo from Lancaster.
'Two Lancaster sixth formers left their audience in a trance at The Gregson Centre at the weekend with a haunting and original piece of music. It was one of two that I caught from Oma Desala (formerly Highfield Shakes), who performed in front of a backdrop of swirling psychedelic images to a young crowd of appreciators. Will Eagles, 17, on vocals, guitar, sitar and synth, has an otherworldly voice that would have been completely at home during the 1970s, when psychedelic rock and Indian music collided to create hallucinatory drones and mesmerising inner journeys. And that’s the sound he’s achieved. Aaron Leigh, 16, provides the heartbeat on drums and percussion. And it sounded like there was some technical wizardry at play in the form of a loop pedal, adding to the depth of sound. The track followed a more in your face psychedelic sound with a definite Led Zep influence.
The duo, who attend Lancaster Royal Grammar School, have a unique approach and are definitely ones to watch. They write and produce their own music and cite Led Zeppelin, Tame Impala, Pink Floyd and Simon and Garfunkel as major influences.'
“Our wide range of influences means that (our sound) really changes from song to song; sometimes it’s very atmospheric and experimental, but we’re also not afraid of some straightforward groove.' - Aaron, drums and percussion, from MUZIK MAGAZINE interview
