OSLO :: PITCH BLACK :: 25/03/17

As anyone who went to their gig at Oslo last July can attest, Pitch Black put on one hell of a show. New Zealand News said of the night that it was “seamless excellence – (Pitch Black) left the crowd wanting more, left themselves wanting more. Like a fine wine, this duo only seems to get better with age”.

That show and their current New Zealand tour are in support of the release of their new album, their fifth, ‘Filtered Senses’, which has been described as sounding “like stardust in stereo” (Beat Magazine, DE) and “hypnotic and rather gorgeously allusive” (Elsewhere, NZ). You can check it out on their YouTube channel, with the playlist including just some of the cutting edge videos they’ve been making to accompany each track.

Supporting them on the night are up and coming English band Feral Five and DJ Liquid Lounge. Due to the venue becoming a club at 11pm, this is an early show, meaning they will be onstage around 8.30pm.

Tickets are £10 + b/f from Music Glue, Ticketweb, Alt-Tickets or See Tickets.

From: 6.30pm
At: 1a Amhurst Road, London E8 1LL
Nearest Tube: Hackney Central
