Anchor 5
'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 queer duo that was formed in Ukraine in 2008: Zhenia Purpurovsky (from Kyiv) and Paul Chilton (UK) – songwriters, producers, composers, and multi- instrumentalists who create 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 tells Zhenia’s personal story as a multi-ethnic queer refugee and complex trauma survivor from a working-class background.


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.


After festival performances and hundreds of successful headline shows in UK and Ukraine including headline concerts at Kyiv House of Artists for a crowd of 500 and supporting DakhaBrakha at one of UK’s leading music venues SWX Bristol, tAngerinecAt kick off their extensive premiere GLASS-European-Tour 2023 with performances at Tallinn Music Week, Wave-Gotik-Treffen, Focus Wales and SHARPE.
