Modern classical wunderkinds Dustin O’Halloran and Adam Wiltzie, better known as A Winged Victory for the Sullen, are back with their second studio album (2 film soundtracks and a conceptual dance EP none-withstanding) and a series of unique UK shows for 2020. The composer duo will be performing under God’s roof for 10 nights around the UK, including a show at St. Paul’s Church in Birmingham for This is Tmrw. Any gig-going Brummie worth their salt will agree that this is shaping up to be a transcendent, possibly once-in-a-lifetime show for the city.

The airy, languid ambient pieces of A Winged Victory for the Sullen have redefined the boundaries and opened up the sometimes impenetrable genre that is classical to whole new audiences throughout the last decade. Based on the double A-side released ahead of The Undivided Five – ‘The Rhythm of a Dividing Pair’ and ‘The Haunted Victorian Pencil’ – they are continuing to push their own boundaries into the future.
