After their monumental headline performance at Roundhouse last year, and having recently sold out Studio 9294 in record time Portico Quartet bring their unique, mesmerising and groundbreaking sound to Barbican for one very special night. Expect new music from their forthcoming album out later this year on Gondwana Records.
“Portico Quartet stake claims to territory occupied by Radiohead, Cinematic Orchestra and Efterklang”. ***** The Guardian
Sending out echoes of jazz, electronica, ambient music and minimalism, the group created their own singular, cinematic sound over the course of five 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 Untitled (AITAOA #2) in April 2018.
