“Tangents artfully mix acoustic instruments and electronics in pieces that combine improvisation with careful processing." 7.8/10
- Pitchfork

Tangents are an Australian-based quintet that melds electronic production, experimental rock and free improvisation.
Comfortable working with jazz, folk music, post-rock and electronic music, their album Stateless was voted by Treble as on of the 10 Best Jazz Albums of 2016 labelling it as “an exercise in beat-laden serenity”

Their incendiary live shows are a concoction of jazz-inflected melodicism, junglist rhythms and post-punk and are driven by live drums and electronic beats, with processed performances on cello, electric guitar and piano/Rhodes electric piano.

A Tangents live show is a natural extension of their recorded work - unique and unrepeatable, featuring an instinctual, organic sense of time & space, rhythm & melody between the five musicians. Their first album, STATELESS was released by Brooklyn label Temporary Residence and featured remixes by Four Tet & Bundy K Brown (Ex-Tortoise).

The new album, NEW BODIES is set to be released by Temporary Residence in 2018.
