Formed by Okkervil River's Jonathan Meiburg and Will Sheff as an outlet for their quieter, more intimate songs, fifteen years later Shearwater are a formidable name in indie rock shifting labels from indie tastemaker Misra to indie stable Matador to indie hero Sub Pop over the course of ten albums.
And over that course their sound has journeyed from the vulnerable and stripped back Everyone Makes Mistakes to the gloriously tender alt-country wash of Rook to new single Quiet Americans, which experiments with pulsing soundscapes and a dark echo of 80s synth pioneers.
No matter what era back catalogue Shearwater turn to, you're guaranteed impeccable musicianship and a performance that grips and twists. Get a ticket to this Islington Assembly Hall show and be won over in the most beautiful of venues.
Presented by Eat Your Own Ears.
This is a 16+ event.
