Music // Coming up // Port Erin
"Gorgeous, cinematic music" Clash Music "A brilliant young guitar band" The Guardian "West Country favourites of mine" Tom Robinson | BBC 6 Music
Purveyors of original genre-bending music, Port Erin are a band of three made of two brothers – Reuben Myles Tyghe, vocals and guitar, flanked by Jacob Myles Tyghe on bass and Cerys Brocklehurst on drums. Now residing and writing in the city of Bath, they hail from Broughton Gifford (a very small Wiltshire village tucked away in South West England) where they formed in January 2007.
Over the past 12 years Port Erin have extensively toured the U.K. performing over 750 shows at some of of the U.K.’s most prestigious venues. They have made appearances at many UK & EU festivals including; Glastonbury Festival (‘10, ‘11, ‘13 & ’14, ‘17), played live sessions for BBC Introducing and their music has been aired numerous times on BBC Radio 6 (Guy Garvey & Tom Robinson). Since their formation, they have diligently been affirming themselves as one of the UK’s hardest working, most loved, unsung and underground DIY bands.
Drawing inspiration from the likes of pioneering greats such as David Bowie, Can, Miles Davis, Morphine, Radiohead, Syd Arthur, Talking Heads, Talk Talk and Tortoise there are a milieu of sonic textures are at play in their sound with echoes of jazz and post-rock coupled with mechanical, driving Krautrock rhythms –– they are as punk as they are prog and as political as they are personal.
