Unknown Mortal Orchestra's Sex & Food Tour 2018
The brainchild of New Zealand-based singer songwriter Ruban Nielson and bassist Jake Portrait, Unknown Mortal Orchestra first introduced the world to their kaleidoscopic vision with the release of their critically acclaimed self-titled debut album in 2011. It's lo-fi-drenched, experimental flights of fancy evolved to become their trademark neo-psychedelia over the course of their subsequent albums, culminating in the 2018 release of Sex & Food.
Heading out on a mammoth tour in support of this latest offering, UMO bring the next phase of their dimension-bending journey to the stage. Imparting an intense social commentary on the state of the world in their lyrical content, the outfit blends otherworldly folk with a shellshocked sense of soul-infused funk, shape-shifting between grooves and riffs to carve their own niche in the paths well-trod by the likes of Tame Impala and the like.
