The Brackish + Tom Skelly & The Cool Seas
The Brackish are a Bristol supergroup featuring our friend Neil Smith of This Is The Kit.
They play complex instrumental music and are stunning live.
with support from Tom Skelly & The Cool Seas
Psychedelic vanguards and misfit maestros of Bristol’s BLOOM music collective, THE BRACKISH are a thrillingly unique instrumental new-wave-jazz-prog-surf-rock band known for their incendiary and occasionally amp-destroying live performances.
Their debut album, 2014’s Tough Guys (Lava Thief), righteously filled a kaleidoscopic void in instrumental music and along with 2016’s follow up album, Liquid Of Choice (Bad Elephant Music), the band gained an infamous reputation for their awe-inspiring live shows across the European and UK art rock scene, including the La Ferme Électrique and ArcTanGent festivals. With their third album Firm But Fair, THE BRACKISH are storming the stage again with a new brew of gracefully strange arrangements and improvised auditory theatre.
The Brackish are: guitarists Luke Cawthra (Phantom Limb – The Naim Label) and Neil Smith (This Is The Kit – Rough Trade), drummer Matt Jones (Zun Zun Egui – Bella Union) and Port Erin bassist, Jacob Tyghe.
