Housewives plus support
Saturday, April 20th
Housewives are a genreless band from London who play experimental music that points to the future. Using prepared guitars, electronics, percussion and saxophone they create an enveloping sound of syncopated rhythms and antithetical song structures. Droning bass lines underpin ethereal samples, whilst precise guitar lines mix with minimal drum parts in ecstatic fashion.
Their kinetic live sets have cemented their reputation as one of the most exciting live bands in Europe; championed by the likes of Tom Ravenscroft (BBC 6 Music), Radio 3 Late Junction and pioneering experimental musician Charles Hayward (This Heat). They join the likes of Liars, Animal Collective and The Knife in laying the gauntlet for experimental music this decade and pushing the boundaries of what a live band can do.
“Their new material is outstanding, and utterly defies genre." The Quietus
“Music that's beyond genre categorisation and as a result, stands out as one of this year's  unmissable acts.” Drowned In Sound
“In sonorous inebriations, Housewives tatters mental matter into an oblivion, from minimalist punches and strokes, and a full on assault of sonic permutation.” Tiny Mix Tapes
Price: £10 (£8 in advance)
