Fainne Gael an Lae - 2009



Fierce yet tender vocals, provocatively honest lyrics, the huge many faceted sound of the hurdy-gurdy, mesmerizing whistles, field recordings, loops, bass lines, electronic dance beats and lush synth voices all come together in a live setting to create an image evoking, emotionally intense, utterly captivating and unforgettable audience experience that is tAngerinecAt.

Drawing from a vast range of influences, this hard to define duo have been labelled with various genres from electronic rock to psychedelic drone punk and post industrial. Formed by London based multi-instrumentalists Eugene and Paul in 2008 they have released four albums to date and have performed hundreds of shows.
Featured on BBC 2, BBC 3 and BBC 6

BBC 6 Recommended Artist by Tom Robinson

"This is some of the most powerful music I have heard in a long time, and holds a message too... difficult to believe there were only two musicians on stage. They manage a real art; creating sound which people enjoy".

"Tangerinecat started with a super-loud electronic bass loop. They did four or five songs, long droning pieces based on loops with flute, hurdy-gurdy and vocals on top. It worked. Eugene is a fantastic singer, a ranter and belter with occasional glassware-shattering screams. As abrasive noise went, I liked them a whole lot."

"Tangerinecat exploded into my world and I'm a happier man for it! Awesome energy and multidisciplinary. Myself and the team at New Art Exchange really appreciated your work".
- Jason Pollitt‎, New Art Exchange

"You were absolutely brilliant, so captivating! Comment from one of our volunteers "I couldn't take my eyes off the stage". Thanks so much for coming and sharing your creativity with us."
- Ladyfest Manchester

"Truly stunning performance. I really hope Instigate Arts and Tangerinecat get to work together again soon!"
- Anne Louise Kershaw, Co-Director/Owner at Instigate Arts, Former Arts & Music Editor at manchestersfinest.com

"This is the only thing that I want to listen at this moment".

"I’ve been playing it all week and loving it. I was listening to Under the Pavement radio and they interviewed tAngerinecAt, and I was very moved actually. Every so often you hear a piece of music and it just stops you in your tracks, well by all manner with that one, with innovation, and it’s sound, and it’s lyrics, it’s just quite moving."
- REBEL ARTS / RADIO, Cambridge

"It just blew everyone away, I was stunned in there and I was like gob smacked cos it was so atmospheric and so meaningful and they were really into it and I look forward to getting them in."
- Liz Jenkins, Presenter of The Northern Side, BCB 106.66 fm
