PORT ERIN - Garnering near-cult status as purveyors of original genre-bending music, Port Erin are a band of three. Two brothers- Reuben Myles Tyghe, vocals and guitar, flanked by Jacob Myles Tyghe on bass and Cerys Brocklehurst on drums. They hail from Broughton Gifford (a very small village tucked away in South West England) and formed in January 2007.

The past decade has seen them extensively tour the U.K. performing over 600 shows at some of of the U.K.'s
most prestigious venues. They have made appearances at many festivals including; Glastonbury Festival, played live sessions for BBC Introducing and their music has been aired numerous times on BBC Radio 6.

Their musicality is magnetic with tightly wound dives and grooves. Cerys and Jacob's rhythm section is a solid
unit, Reuben drifts in-at times controlled and soulful but with moments of cornered fretting. A milieu of sonic textures are at play with echoes of jazz, coupled with mechanical Krautrock undertones. They are as punk as they are prog and as political as they are personal. Port Erin draw inspiration from the likes of XTC, David Bowie, Miles Davis, Syd Arthur, Talking Heads, Morphine and Tortoise.

Support from Vuromantics - Vuromantics are a brand spanking new band who burst into life in March 2017. The band have already released their first E.P and have been touring hard since their launch with regular dates in the north, the south and ventures into Scotland & Wales. The band blend pop sensibilities with a passion for electronic music and funk groove to create a very modern take on retro ideas. With a summer release to come and new shows being announced all the time, it won't be long before Vuromantics appear on your radar.
