Only a matter of days till dynamic alternative 3 piece Port Erin head to Liverpool to showcase their newly released album Ocean Grey. With 10 years of live performing experience behind them and last years’ tour as Nick Harpers backing band, only expect great things from these boys.
14th April – The Shipping Forecast, Liverpool
Garnering near-cult status as purveyors of original genre-bending music, Port Erin are a band of three. Two brothers- Reuben Myles Tyghe, vocals and guitar, flanked by Jacob Myles Tyghe on bass and Cerys Brocklehurst on drums. They hail from Broughton Gifford (a very small village tucked away in South West England) and formed in January 2007.
2017 brings the horizon of album four, Ocean Grey. Ten years distilled into six potent, extended, considered songs. Recorded in the Wiltshire studio of platinum producer and composer, Chris Hughes. Ocean Grey was tracked and mixed by long-time collaborator, Dominic Bailey-Clay (of Nine Volt Leap Recording Studio) following his past work on previous albums, Floating Above The City and Live 2015. Pete Judge of critically acclaimed jazz instrumental outfits, Get the Blessing(link text) and Dakhla plays trumpet aside long-standing collaborator, Simon Williams on saxophone.
Ocean Grey is an album of considered, quiet rage. Lyrically, it explores earth waning themes of displacement and loss yet solace emerges in the thinnest of glimmers.
