Seven years into Dutch Uncles’ flourishing career A-Bound are delighted to host the idiosyncratic art-popologists' in a homecoming gig in Greater Manchester. The show comes a year on from latest album 'O Shudder' which saw them further distilling and refining their signature sound, marrying rock bombast with classical arrangements, acoustic instrumentation with smart synthetic pop.
BERNARD & EDITH
Subtly disturbing, and deceptively pretty, trip hop blues from the backstreets of Manchester.
The quartet allow the angst of adolescence to seep through to the “right side of 25” with music preoccupied with sex, social media and self-prescribed health checks. Articulating the inner-most thoughts of its suburban male protagonist, Duncan Wallis’s nervous, fluttering falsetto is backed by graceful orchestration and delicately plucked minimalism, finding surreal beauty amid the awkwardness.
