Portico Quartet still sound like nothing you ever heard before.
The Mercury nominated East London based outfit's unique music has expanded to embrace new sonic territories. Drawing on the inspiration of electronica, ambient, classical and dance music as they take their strange, beautiful, cinematic, future music to exciting new vistas where the inspiration of Burial, Mount Kimbie and Flying Lotus rubs shoulders with the textures of Arve Henriksen and Bon Iver and echoes of Steve Reich and Max Richter. But all underpinned by a shared joy in collective music making as the band push their inimitable music into the future.
Portico Quartet's fourth album, a double CD set entitled Live / Remix is released in March 2013 on Real World Records. It offers fans and new listeners a chance to hear the band in all their live glory as Portico Quartet take the listener on an epic journey into the heart of their inimitable electro-acoustic-ambient music. While the remix disc features remixes from Will Ward, SBTRKT, Luke Abbott, Scratcha DVA, LV, Capac', Konx-om-Pax and Luca Lozano. Full of mystery and drama Portico Quartet still take the listener on an unparalleled journey and live they pack a heavy punch as the band looks defiantly into the future.

'Genuinely innovative, there isn’t a band that sounds remotely like them' - Observer Music Monthly
