Cute Owl Promotions proudly presents: tAngerinecAt, Ecka Mordecai and éntha as part of the London leg of tAngerinecAt's UK Tour. An amazing night of highly individual music.
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. 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
'Eugene is a fantastic singer, a ranter and belter with occasional glassware-shattering screams. As abrasive noise went, I liked them a whole lot...' - ROCKNERD
Ecka Mordecai is a 'cellist who composes and plays with ideas around gravity and the body. With a background in renaissance and improvised musics, performance and sound art, her live shows are dynamic; a merging of melody, song, and abstract form.
éntha swirls together glitch electronics, lush guitar melodies and infinite noise structures into single crystalline endlessly blooming soundscapes, stitched with deep self-reflection and eternal white light. Great abstraction meets futurism in the éntha's complex philosophy, which truly opens in the live performances, taking audience into never-ending journey through the oceans of thick electric shine and melodic drone...
'...one-man shoegazer éntha delivers a wall of guitar noise akin to Kevin Shields or The Telescopes, backed with processed, industrial loops and pads. A tone poem for a near-future dystopia, with twinkling neon melodies struggling to be free from the bludgeoning noise.' - BagThing
'It makes sense that the first time I heard this music I was alone in a field in England, lights from a city illuminating the sky ahead.' - Zen Zsigo (Cremation Lily)
