Friday Night Jive present
Friday 6th July — Small Seeds, Huddersfield
Archipelago are a reeds/bass/drums trio from Newcastle upon Tyne. Their music fuses jazz, garage-rock and free improvisation into a fluid collage; somewhere between the fixed and the floating, exploring song forms and emotional narratives with riffs, silence, noise, grooves and improvisation. By turns lyrical, sparse, frantic or crunchingly loud, Archipelago are fast growing a reputation for their honest, engaged musicianship and compelling live performances.
