HOUSEWIVES

— Rough Trade Bristol
(LONDON, BLANK EDITIONS)
time:19:30
price: Headfirst Tickets

Information:

HOUSEWIVES are a genreless band from London who play experimental music that points to the future. Using prepared guitars, electronics, percussion and saxophone they create an enveloping sound of syncopated rhythms and antithetical song structures. Droning bass lines underpin ethereal samples, whilst precise guitar lines mix with minimal drum parts in ecstatic fashion.

Their kinetic live sets have cemented their reputation as one of the most exciting live bands in Europe; championed by the likes of Tom Ravenscroft (BBC 6 Music), Radio 3 Late Junction and pioneering experimental musician Charles Hayward (This Heat).

“Their new material is outstanding, and utterly defies genre." - The Quietus

“Music that's beyond genre categorisation and as a result, stands out as one of this year's unmissable acts.” - Drowned In Sound

“In sonorous inebriations, Housewives tatters mental matter into an oblivion, from minimalist punches and strokes, and a full on assault of sonic permutation.” - Tiny Mix Tapes

"dank, angular and urgent take on post-punk through the prism of skronking estatic jazz, jarring polyrhythm and aesthethically pure snarl is terrifying as it is fascinating" - Loud & Quiet
