Sending out echoes of jazz, electronica, ambient music and minimalism, Mercury Prize nominated Portico Quartet have created their own singular, cinematic sound over the course of four lauded studio albums and one EP. From the band’s 2007 breakthrough Knee-Deep in the North Sea, and the John Leckie-produced Isla in 2010, to the self-titled recording Portico Quartet in 2012 and the heralded Art In The Age Of Automation in August 2017, each album has seen the band expand its palate or explore new trajectories.
