Tangents incendiary live shows are driven by live drums and electronic beats, with processed performances on cello, electric guitar and piano/Rhodes electric piano.

Their live show is a natural extension of their recorded work – unique and unrepeatable, featuring an instinctual, organic sense of time & space, rhythm & melody between the five musicians.

Their new album, New Bodies is now released by legendary Brooklyn based label Temporary Residence (Mogwai, Explosions In The Sky, Hauschka, My Disco).

After an eventful year of touring throughout their native Australia – including runs with labelmates MONO and like-minded pioneers Tortoise – and featuring alongside the work of artist David Hockney at the National Gallery of Victoria, Tangents return with their new album New Bodies, another stylistic detour that continues their rummage through countless varieties of electronics, rock, dub, noise and jazz that defines the group’s acclaimed aesthetic.

Celebrating the release of New Bodies, the group make a stop at the Metropole for an intimate evening of beautiful melodies, intricate grooves and exhilarating improvisation.

“Tangents artfully mix acoustic instruments and electronics in pieces that combine improvisation with careful processing.” – Pitchfork

“The quintet are so comfortable working with jazz, folk music, post-rock and electronic music that the track comfortably hangs in a space between them all.” – FACT Magazine

“an exercise in beat-laden serenity” – Treble (listing Stateless in their 10 Best Jazz Albums of 2016)

“breathtaking technical dexerity” – Pitchfork Magazine

“absolutely mind-blowing” – Mary Anne Hobbs, BBC 6Music

“unlike any other record you'll hear this year” – PopMatters

Adrian Lim-Klumpes – piano, Rhodes, vibraphone, marimba, pedals
Evan Dorrian – drum kit, percussion
Ollie Bown – computer
Peter Hollo – cello, effects
Shoeb Ahmad – guitar, pedals

+ Special Guest BROKEN CHIP

With a contempt for conventionality and a love for experimentation, Broken Chip creates music that is electronic yet organic, machine yet human. Traditional instruments and homemade software are used for this expedition into the sonic wilderness; this Australian artist conducts an orchestra of fat wet boots crunching through snow, of dark leaky basements, of wind whispering through winter wastelands. It’s a lesson in evoking mood.
