Uncompromising and unnervingly personal, Xiu Xiu's sound dives between the most avant-garde pop to orchestral experimental rock. Peppered with emotion, Xiu Xiu is the work of multi-instrumentalist Jamie Stewart and a cacophony of collaborators. There's an intensity to what they do that has to be witnessed live. Always developing, changing and shape-shifting, latest album Girl with Basket of Fruit is rowdier than ever. For this live operation, they manifest in the form of Jamie Stewart, Thor Harris (Swans) and Jordan Gieger (Minus Story/Shearwater). Are you ready?
Support comes from Bristol-based composer/producer John Bence whose haunting tracks deliver overwhelming emotion. His album Kill is a journey in itself and out now via Yves Tumor's Grooming label, legends supporting legends.
