Abracadabra + Warm Graves
Diving into decades of electronica and crunchy sound effects, field recordings and animal sounds, blended with an infectious Latin influence, Californian duo abracadabra’s new album ‘shapes & colors’ shimmies with the charismatic energy of Lizzy Mercier Descloux, the dub hits of Scientist, and the idiosyncrasies of Deerhoof offering an ornate alternative to traditional guitar pop chord progressions as they layer danceable motifs.
'shapes & colors' has been described as “a mind-expanding experience, well worth the backwards time travel” (The Quietus). “If the fantasy of a King Tubby-produced Tom Tom Club floats your boat, then this infectious debut will surely hit the spot.” (Electronic Sound) and, it “Bristles with contemporary freshness and wonky charm” (Uncut). Their lead single ‘talk talk’ was a hit among the folks at the BBC, making its way onto The 6 Music Playlist.
abracadabra hit the road earlier this year with their 5-piece live band, touring to SXSW before a series of dates in the UK supporting The Go! Team. They’re thrilled to hop across the pond again later this year, this time as a headliner with dates in the EU as well as the UK.
Warm Graves was brought to life by Leipzig-based composer Jonas Wehner in 2012. Following their epic 2014 debut ‘Ships Will Come’, the band soon found themselves touring with the likes of Exploded View and Moon Duo and sharing stages with The Soft Moon, Crystal Stilts, Efterklang & Moonface, among many others. As well as UK/EU headline tours of their own, they appeared at a number of international festivals – including The Great Escape, ATP, Iceland Airwaves and Roskilde.
