India Electric Company are perhaps best described as “a veritable musical magpie’s nest” (BBC Radio 3).
Blending traditional instruments, folk melodies and subtle electronic influences, they’ve toured extensively throughout Europe, Australia and New Zealand, including UK shows at The London Palladium and Hammersmith Apollo and provide listeners with “A full musical odyssey” (BBC Radio 1).
After live sessions with BBC Radio 2 and 6 Music, Glastonbury Festival appearances and BBC Introducing’s backing they released The Gap in 2020 with The Daily Telegraph noting they are “Bursting with invention and full of surprises.”
“Two of the most extraordinary musicians, a phenomenal duo” – BBC Radio 2
From Carbon are an exciting Mancunian Indie band with the true sound of Manchester – fusing the nostalgic influences of pre-bomb Manchester while also bringing a forward thinking mentality to their sound keeping this style of music alive both now and in the future.
The band toured in 2016 with the amazingly talented Heather Small (M-People) at 14 dates across the UK.
A creative line up of solid yet expressive drums and bass, guitars which veer from the intricate, to the raunchy, to the beautifully atmospheric; the soaring melodic tones of violin and piano with the emotive lead vocal and tasteful backing vocals; makes it easy to get lost in the soundscape of From Carbon.
The band released its debut album ‘Wealth’ in late 2013 and the album launch saw them sell out The Deaf Institute in Manchester. The rave reviews from fans and critics that followed were a testament to the hard work and song craft of the band. Since then, From Carbon have been performing at Greater Manchester venues and events such as the Night and Day Café, Blackthorn Festival and most recently selling out Gorilla and supporting Chameleons Vox at Academy 2 in December 2015.
As support for India Electric Co From Carbon will play as a stripped back line-up.
