About the Line Up:
London post-rock six-piece Rumour Cubes create lush soundscapes characterised by soaring strings, epic guitars, complex rhythms and driving bass-lines. Their albums 'The Narrow State' (2012) and 'Appearances Of Collections' (2014) received wide critical acclaim and the band are also veterans at performing live shows, most notoriously Glastonbury, ArcTangent and a support slot for Sólstafir.
Dresda have several well-received releases under their belts, including soundtracks for critically acclaimed Italian independent movie 'The Krolevsky Case', and the short movie 'La lingua del disordine'. Their music is intricate, dense, yet gloriously cinematic. In 2009, they were featured on the Italian DVD edition of the Canadian documentary 'RIP! A remix manifesto', distributed by Feltrinelli Real Cinema nationwide. The band's arguably biggest feat to date has been supporting Zu in Italy proving Dresda are definitely headed in the right direction.
Conceived in 2005 from a string of old 4-track demos and further realized via a labyrinth of digital workstations and computer software, London duo kontakte blend organic instrumentation within an electronic and hypnotic framework of programmed beats and pulsing synths.
Pooling influences such as Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Mogwai together with Brian Eno, krautrock and shogaze sounds, this duo manages to perfectly blend shimmering electronics and ethereal melodies.
