Tangents 'New Bodies' Album Launch, with special guests Harmony
After an eventful year of touring throughout their native Australia – including runs with labelmates MONO and like-minded pioneers Tortoise – and featuring alongside the work of artist David Hockney at the National Gallery of Victoria, Tangents return with their new album New Bodies, another stylistic detour that continues their rummage through countless varieties of electronics, rock, dub, noise and jazz that defines the group’s acclaimed aesthetic.
Celebrating the release of New Bodies, the group make a stop at The Street Theatre for an intimate evening of beautiful melodies, intricate grooves and exhilarating improvisation.
Tangents are joined for this special night by Melbourne's dark gospel rockers Harmony. The Australian Music Prize nominated band launch their new album 'Double Negative' on Poison City Records and return to The Street and Canberra for the first time since 2014.
After two progressively dour full lengths (the acclaimed debut and follow up ‘Carpetbombing’) and slew of 7” singles, they lift their gaze and proclaim a love that is potentially even more confronting than the incredibly personal stories of loss they have previously favoured.
Whilst ubiquitous in pop music, Love is the most difficult of subjects. Harmony approach it on their new album in typically blunt fashion leaning into matters of the heart with an appreciation for its complexities that is uniquely theirs. From the bedroom to the staffroom and all the intersecting arteries in between, Harmony explore a complicated structure bound by raw desire.
