Following on from a belting party with World’s End Press and Porsches,Maribou State will be joining Young Muscle in Adelaide (Saturday, 14 November) as part of their five date tour of Australia.
Despite growing up in the same picturesque village, Chris Davids and Liam Ivory aka Maribou State customarily ignored each other at school, but discovered their shared passion for music at university in Leeds and became firm friends. Since then they have steadily built a glowing international reputation via a string of well-loved EPs and a fistful of remixes (including Kelis, Lana del Ray, Crookers and Fat Boy Slim) since 2011. Plaudits from the electronic press have flowed thick and fast alongside support from radio heavyweights: Zane Lowe, Huw Stephens, Annie Mac, B. Traits, Pete Tong and Gilles Peterson amongst others.
Intrigued by the dynamics of electronic music for the dancefloor as much as with the richness and human quality of live instrumentation and songcraft, they have worked tirelessly to evolve and forge a unique, compelling and deeply soulful marriage of the organic and the synthetic, showcased on their debut album Portraits. Their debut album 'Portraits' (released in June 2015 via Ninja Tune) is an irresistible marriage of deep, resonant guitar licks and dishevelled synths riding upon loping breakbeats and overlaid with trademark deconstructed vocal dubs.
