Sending out echoes of jazz, electronica, ambient music and minimalism, Mercury Prize nominated Portico Quartet have created their own singular, cinematic sound over the course of four lauded studio albums and one EP. From the band’s 2007 breakthrough ‘Knee-Deep in the North Sea’, and the John Leckie produced ‘Isla’ in 2010, to the self-titled recording ‘Portico Quartet’ in 2012 and the heralded Art In The Age Of Automation in August 2017 (and the companion EP Untitled (AITAOA #2) in April 2018) each album has seen the band expand its palate or explore new trajectories. The band’s new album, „Memory Streams“, is out now on Gondwana Records. „Portico Quartet continue to plough their own furrow on their gorgeous new album Memory Streams“ (Bleep)
