News: NZ Shapeshifter Announce UK Tour Dates

1 min read

(UK) Following the success of their 2013 release ‘Delta’, elemental soul outfit NZ Shapeshifter will be performing a series of UK dates this spring, beginning at The Bongo Club in Edinburgh on 9th April 2014.

NZ Shapeshifter boast a stadium-sized sound which adds layers of depth-charge bass, jazz, funk, rock and electronica to barrelling breakbeats, capable of morphing from rolling drum ‘n’ bass to pummelling guitar-driven jams to horizon-shifting electronic soundscapes.

Delta’, their fifth and most recent album, is their most fearless release yet – embodying the spirit of experimentation in its innovative all-analogue instrumentation of vintage synths, horns and guitar. These are showcased beautifully in the sublime opening chords of ‘Arcadia’, through to the junglist jabs of ‘Shadowboxer’ andd elevated trance progressions of ‘Diamond Trade’. Having morphed through elastic electronic textures to bedrocks of soul and rave, their sound is constantly evolving to motivate dancefloors worldwide.

With record-breaking tours in their home country of New Zealand, scene-setting appearances at festivals like Glastonbury, The Big Chill and Parklife, sold-out European performances, four EPs and five LPs (three with platinum sales) under their belts, this multi-award-winning electronic outfit packs a serious punch – and the Edinburgh leg of their tour promises to deliver more of their trademark energy.

TOUR DATES:

APRIL 9TH – EDINBURGH @ THE BONGO CLUB

APRIL 11TH – BRIGHTON @ CONCORDE 2

APRIL 12TH – LONDON @ THE FORUM
