PORT ERIN
"(Ocean Grey) sounds awesome. The artwork could be from the opening credits of a Scandi-TV thriller and the music plays out in somewhat similar fashion. Tense, edgy atmospherics with lovely guitar textures on "Just Like TV". Add horns and you’ve got the funky, rock-noir vibe of "Half Cut Moon". It’s kinda prog, but cool prog, if you know what I mean."
-David Sinclair, The Times.

Garnering near-cult status as purveyors of original genre-bending music, Port Erin are a band of three. Two brothers- Reuben Myles Tyghe, vocals and guitar, flanked by Jacob Myles Tyghe on bass and Cerys Brocklehurst on drums. They hail from Broughton Gifford (a very small village tucked away in South West England) and formed in January 2007.

Their musicality is magnetic with tightly wound dives and grooves. Cerys and Jacob’s rhythm section is a solid unit, Reuben drifts in-at times controlled and soulful but with moments of cornered fretting. A milieu of sonic textures are at play with echoes of jazz, coupled with mechanical Krautrock undertones. They are as punk as they are prog and as political as they are personal.

Port Erin draw inspiration from the likes of XTC, David Bowie, Miles Davis, Syd Arthur, Talking Heads, Morphine and Tortoise.
