New Zealand’s Unknown Mortal Orchestra arrive in Birmingham for a psychedelic fun fair at the O2 Institute on November 19th.
After a stellar 2018 in which the band have released two studio albums, the magnificent evolution of Sex & Food and the experimental IC-01 Hanoi, Unknown Mortal Orchestra return to Birmingham to unleash their trademark sounds. A unique blend of tones and experimental beats unearth a constant plethora of surprise in every musical release from the band, with the Birmingham return marking their first show in the city since since their 2013 show at the O2 Institute with Splashh.
Playing at the O2 Institute on November 19th, the Ruban Neilson-fronted band are set to deliver an awe inspiring performance of fan favourite tracks such as ‘So Good At Being In Trouble’ and ‘Necessary Evil’, both of which showcase their psychedelic rock and experimental jazz concoction in unique fashion. Alumni of Fat Possum Records, and currently on the roster of Jagjaguwar, UMO will appeal to fans of Bon Iver, Tame Impala and Ladyhawke to name but a few.
Birmingham marks UMO’s first UK date of their European Tour, with tickets available here. Support comes from Jacksonville resident, singer-songwriter Yuno.
