'Glass is a truly astounding, powerful and highly pertinent piece of work… The outfit fuses electronica and drone with industrial flourishes and beautifully dark songwriting… If it doesn’t get your blood pumping then you may as well check yourself into the crematorium… Over throbbing electronica and a relentless four-to-the-floor beat, tAngerinecAt delivers one of the most exciting pieces of music I’ve heard this year. It is, to use a technical term, an absolute banger.’ – Louder Than War
"tAngerinecAt is breaking down barriers and the time-space continuum" -

​ tAngerinecAt is Wales based duo that was formed in Ukraine in 2008: Zhenia Purpurovsky (from Kyiv) and Paul Chilton (UK) – songwriters, producers, composers, and multi-instrumentalists who craft a spellbinding sonic world using electronic production, hurdy-gurdy, voice, whistles and an array of other sounds. Their new album Glass that hit the top of the charts on Bandcamp and was voted one of Louder Than War's top 100 albums of 2022 highlights Zhenia’s personal story as a multi-ethnic disabled queer refugee and complex trauma survivor from a working-class background.


tAngerinecAt has developed an international cult following over the last decade with festival performances and hundreds of successful headline shows in the UK and Ukraine including headline concerts at Kyiv House of Artists for a crowd of 500,  a performance at Wave-Gotik-Treffen 2023 in Leipzig Central Theatre (700 capacity) and appearences at Tallinn Music Week 2023, Focus Wales 2023, and Sharpe International Showcase Festival and Conference 2023 in Bratislava.


Their influences range from artists like Son Lux, Gesaffelstein, Fever Ray, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, My Dying Bride, to the ethnic music of the Ukrainian Carpathian Mountains and the films of Sergey Parajanov.
