Opus & Now Then Present: Portico Quartet + Before Breakfast on Wednesday 26th February 2020

“Portico Quartet stake claims to territory occupied by Radiohead, Cinematic Orchestra and Efterklang”.
***** The Guardian

Mercury Prize-nominated Portico Quartet debut new music.
Sending out echoes of jazz, electronica, ambient music and minimalism, the group created their own singular, cinematic sound over the course of four studio albums, from the band’s 2007 breakthrough ‘Knee-Deep in the North Sea’, and the John Leckie produced ‘Isla’ in 2010, to the self-titled recording ‘Portico Quartet’ in 2012 and the heralded Art In The Age Of Automation in August 2017 and the EP Untitled (AITAOA #2) in April 2018.

This show will feature music from their new album, Memory Streams, released on Gondwana Records in October 2019. Expect mesmeric music that draws both on their luminous past while pushing their trademark sound into exciting new pastures.

Duncan Bellamy - Drums and Electronics
Milo Fitzpatrick - Bass
Keir Vine - Hang Drums and Keys

Before Breakfast (Gina, Debra and Lucy) weave strong melodies with piano, cello and vocal harmonies to create an authentic and accomplished sound that is drawn from a wealth of musical experience, from classical to folk, and are inspired by artists including Bjork and Marika Hackman. Before Breakfast have a strong sense of meaning, telling intimate stories about being a woman that resonate with people of all stages of life. The band have supported Tokio Myers and C Duncan at venues such as Shepherd's Bush Empire, Scala, The Sage and Albert Hall, Manchester on their UK tours and have worked with Reverend And The Makers, Jon Boden, The Dunwells and Renegade Brass Band.
