Indie-pop duo Tune-Yards return to Sage Gateshead on Tuesday following the release of their new album ‘I Can Feel You Creep into my Private Life’.
The album comes four years after their previous record, ‘Nikki Nack’, which was praised for its “joyful energy” (New Yorker). Now, the band return with 12 new songs tackling head on the subjects of race, politics, intersectional feminism and environmental prophecies with their signature style of upbeat and catchy music.
Lead by New England native Merrill Garbus, the band’s sound is characterised by their low-fi yet visceral art-pop, with Garbus orchestrating a range of instruments, from loop pedals, ukulele, vocals, and lo-fi percussion, accompanied by Nate Brenner on electric bass.
Tune-Yards will be supported by Brazilian psych rockers, Boogarins. Since their first album was released worldwide, Boogarins have grown an international audience and attracted praise from critics abroad.
2014 saw Boogarins circling the globe continually – headlining clubs and playing festivals from Austin to London, Paris to Madrid, New York to San Francisco, Santiago to Mexico City, playing alongside many great artists around the world including Primal Scream.
The band’s second album, ‘MANUAL’ (2015) was nominated for a Latin Grammy (Best Rock Album, Portuguese Language) and was launched in London, inspiring MOJO Magazine to award the group its MOJO Rising distinction.
