have been described as "audio architecture - electronically designed", though they don't slot that easily into the electronica genre, featuring as they do multiple 'real' instruments like cello, sax, guitar and piano merged with vocals and lyrics of a nonconformist bent.
Formed in 2000 by BAFTA award-winning whiz Sonke Prigge, who has worked on everything from indie movies to Blue Peter (!) , they are a loose collective whose inflections have echoes of everything from The Doors to jazz and funk.
Sönke and a shifting cast of sonic renegades have so far issued a quartet of albums: Curfew, Inside, Outside and #curfew2020 and a smattering of singles and EPs (click here for full list).
Although originally set out to be a studio project the Band have also played gigs in and around London and festivals accross Europe and the US.
