TOMAGA / UK
Tomaga channel various forms of multi-instrumentalism into music that moves by turns through industrial, jazz, psychedelia and minimalism, on it’s way to somewhere wholly other. Devoted to musical exploration, this London based duo obsessively deconstruct familiar tropes, looking for the tension that lies between improvisation and form. Their second full length album ‘The Shape Of The Dance’ was released in September 2016 and has received acclaim from far and wide. Since then they have been described by BBC Radio3 as ‘the best band in the UK right now’, and were also named by avant-garde luminary Thurston Moore as one of the 5 most underrated bands you should know about right now in a recent article for NME. Having been invited to tour with such musical luminaries as Wire, Deerhoof and Silver Apples since their formation in 2013, TOMAGA are truly one of the finest live acts around.
