Dean Blunt (Hippos In Tanks) brings his brand of warped pop to the stage for the first time following the release of his acclaimed new album The Redeemer.

A London-based musician based in London, Dean Blunt has made a name for himself as one half of the enigmatic Hype Williams (with Inga Copeland), releasing a string of utterly compelling recordings while willfully obscuring identities and intentions. His 2012 solo introduction The Narcissist II was a narcotic mixtape ode to an unspecified girl. Latest album The Redeemer proceeds with a yet more direct and heartfelt message, lifting the veil of tape hiss and blurred signifiers that characterised most of Blunt’s previous work.

The result is a profound artistic statement, its strange, bruised grandeur rising from a disorientating swirl of contradictory emotion. Musically, Blunt’s new songs are replete with vivid mosaics of sound and imagery, orchestral sonatas drifting into ravaged 4am ballads and feral psychedelia. They capture the essence of modern romance: delusional, infatuated and all-consuming.

This exclusive show for Dean Blunt – his first solo in Scotland – promises a fully uncompromising live performance and experience. Support comes from Lord Tusk, an all new London-based act specializing in rough-edged dancefloor psychedelics and dubs.
