HARRY JAMES ANGUS

Sat + Sun

Harry James Angus, the firebrand trumpet-playing vocalist from The Cat Empire, is known both for his thrilling live performances and for his constant musical re-invention.

His new work takes the raw intensity, chaos and exploratory power that has helped make The Cat Empire such an incandescent live experience, but redirects it towards a darker, more weirdly beautiful universe. A universe inspired by artists like Nina Simone, Van Morrison, Antony & The Johnsons and John Coltrane.

The first song from Harry’s new body of work “Flicker”, is a strange, Frankenstein of a song. Incorporating gospel harmonies, thumping drums, a disregard for conventional song structure (or tempo for that matter) and most importantly a vocal take that stretches Harry’s considerable range to its very extremes and most powerful places. It is deeply affecting and personal. It is, quite simply utterly sublime and unlike anything else you will hear.
