Portico Quartet

+ Noya Rao

Friday 10 November, doors 7.00pm

RNCM Theatre


A very welcome return for Mercury Prize-nominated Portico Quartet in their first RNCM show since 2012. One of the UK’s most influential bands, Portico Quartet has 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. Expect thumping hooks, ethereal saxophone, skittering drums, hypnotic minimalism and grooving bass lines from one of the best live bands around.

Support comes from the latest addition to Gondwana Records, exciting vocal-led electronica outfit, Noya Rao, from Leeds.

Duncan Bellamy drums and electronics
Milo Fitzpatrick bass
Keir Vine hang drums and keys
