THE BLACKHEART ORCHESTRA
One of the must-see rising bands of 2017, folktronica pioneers The Blackheart Orchestra never go for the easy sell. With music more suited to a gothic cathedral than a sticky-floored music venue, their multi-instrumental landscapes have always been too adventurous for the mainstream, too uncomfortable for pop, too beautiful for rock and just too plain weird for folk.
Always producing something in between or beyond all easily marketed genres their unique musical personality has won them obsessive worldwide fans.
Their fearless combination of conventional and unconventional, of guitars, omnichord, percussion, ancient synthesisers and voice all reflect their self-created universe where art meets sound and words make images that take you with them on their deep musical journey into the human psyche.
