This is the bands only 2017 London show and will be an up close intimate affair at Nell's Jazz and Blues, a cosy 350 capacity venue in West London.
Submotion Orchestra make some of the most interesting and exciting musical from the UK today: A kaleidoscope of electronic bass music, entrancing vocals, ambient, jazz and dub that sits somewhere on an axis between Bonobo and London Grammar. Their unique music is at once delicate and heavy, spacious and dense, highly atmospheric but firmly rooted. Earth-shaking bass and drums combine with lush keyboard and trumpet textures to create the perfect backdrop for the fragile beauty of Ruby Wood’s vocals, and the celestial effects of producer Ruckspin.
Submotion's first full-length album, Finest Hour, became an instant classic, receiving critical acclaim from around the world, and strong support from DJs such as 6 Music's Mista Jam and Trevor Nelson, who personally invited the band to record a live Radio 2 session. Sell out tours followed across Europe, and the band were quickly booked for some of Europe’s biggest festivals, including Glastonbury, Bestival, The Big Chill, Pohoda and Outlook.
The band's second album Fragments followed in 2012, spent a week at number 1 in the iTunes charts, and the supporting tour climaxed with a sold out show at London’s legendary venue Koko.
