The huge many faceted sound of a virtuously played hurdy-gurdy with effect pedals, fierce yet tender vocals, floaty whistles, massive drone bass & field recordings seamlessly combine with industrial-techno beats in an utterly captivating show.
Formed by currently London based multi-instrumentalists Eugene and Paul in 2008, they have released four albums to date and have performed hundreds of shows.

“Watch out for: tAngerinecAt. This is some of the most powerful music I have heard in a long time, and holds a message too. They manage a real art; creating sound which people enjoy; difficult to believe there were only two musicians on stage.”

“Tangerinecat started with a super-loud electronic bass loop. They did four or five songs, long droning pieces based on loops with flute, hurdy-gurdy and vocals on top. It worked. Eugene is a fantastic singer, a ranter and belter with occasional glassware-shattering screams. As abrasive noise went, I liked them a whole lot.” – ROCKNERD
