Undisputed kings of sometimes-sentimental, always-kooky electronica Unknown Mortal Orchestra have just announced an Australian tour, with dates in December. They’re hot off the heels of 2013’s II which brought us the nostalgic and very chill So Good at Being in Trouble, as well as this year’s stunning Multi-Love. We can look forward to hearing their billowing new work live, including the recognisable piano-based title track, as well as Ur Life One Night – the latter complete with a disturbingly kaleidoscopic video.
The Kiwi band will perform headlining shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Perth, with the tour being rounded off by appearances at Meredith and the new Fairgrounds Festival in NSW. Not bad for a band that was literally conceived in a bedroom.
In this agonising four-month wait for their gigs, have a listen to their recent live performance on KEXP, featuring a very dreamy rendition of So Good at Being in Trouble.
