“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, Portico Quartet have created their own singular, cinematic sound over the last 14 years. From the band’s 2007 breakthrough ‘Knee-Deep in the North Sea’, which was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize to the self-titled recording ‘Portico Quartet’ in 2012, their lauded return Art In The Age Of Automation in August 2017 and the minimalist impressionism of Terrain (May 2021) they have continually reset and challenged expectations.
Expect mesmeric new music that pushes their trademark sound into exciting and enigmatic new directions alongside selected tracks from their luminous back catalogue.
