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, to the self-titled recording Portico Quartet and the heralded Art In The Age Of Automation – plus the EP Untitled (AITAOA #2). Tonight’s show features music from their latest album, Memory Streams, released on Gondwana Records. Expect mesmeric music that draws both on their luminous past while pushing their trademark sound into exciting new pastures.
