Gondwana Records have announced the return of Portico Quartet with their blistering new track ‘Signals in the Dusk’ taken from their upcoming fifth album ‘Memory Streams’ to be released on October 4th.
‘Signals in the Dusk’ is a creeping, mysterious piece that captures the spirit of the upcoming record. It’s hypnotic, rolling quality builds throughout with shades of a classic PQ tune, but with a tougher edge.
Saxophonist Jack Wyllie says the new album “feels in some ways about the identity of the quartet, about the records we’ve made before, and the memory of them.” While drummer Duncan Bellamy notes that “For better or worse I think we have always been quite an isolated band. Perhaps that comes from never feeling like we really belonged to or fit in to a scene when we first started making music”.
The nine song LP follows last year’s Untitled (AITAOA #2) record.
The band are performing a series of live shows over the next few months. For tickets and more information visit their website.
