Waldo's Gift on Friday 15th October 2021

After taking their hometown of Bristol by storm, Waldo’s Gift are rising to national attention and proving themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the UK Jazz scene. This October, they come to The Pickle Factory for their London debut and the launch of their EP Normflex.

Waldo’s Gift is the result of three like-minded musicians that have been given the time and space to let their sound naturally take shape, allowing them to hone in on a true sonic representation of themselves both as individual players and together as a three-piece. Their sound is a coherent cacophony of a vast variety of influences, hurtling from the harmonic and rhythmic sophistication of jazz, through to the most cutting edge experimental electronic music - all with the unhinged energy of the most powerful left-leaning rock and metal, and the emotion and dynamic range of a full orchestra.

2019 saw the release of Improvisations, the band’s self-released debut EP, which was cut from a live recording of one of their now legendary nights at The Gallimaufry in Bristol. The EP was greeted with rapturous critical acclaim and led to Gilles Peterson dubbing them ‘2020 Ones to Watch’, plus extensive support on BBC Radio 6 Music. This catapulted the band from being vanguards of Bristol’s music scene to one of the most exciting new bands in the UK.

Throughout this last chaotic and tumultuous year, Waldo’s Gift have been diligently

working on a new release to unleash onto the world. The EP entitled Normflex sees the band distill their sound into something dark, heavy, unrelenting and beautiful all at the same time. Taking inspiration from electronic music heavyweights such as Aphex Twin and Teebs, as well as digging deep into their collective love-affair with early-noughties metal, the EP takes the trio and listeners alike into completely uncharted sonic territory. This electrifying new release is what awaits their London audience this October.

Earth Cruises donates 10% of profit from all shows to carefully selected causes. Waldo’s Gift have chosen Hackney Migrant Centre who run a weekly, free drop-in advice service for refugees, asylum seekers and other migrants.
