Always reliable purveyors of fine musical offerings, Sheffield's Warp Records recently signed their first Australian artist, Pivot. Specialising in off-kilter, driving rhythms peppered with just the right amount of electronics, these lads start their UK tour tonight in Camden at Proud Galleries. Having served in the support slot for the Australian tours of Four Tet and Battles, sonic comparisons to the latter cannot be avoided, but ring true in the best possible way: this is fractured rock music you can dance to.
If you miss Pivot tonight, you'll be able to catch them on Thursday 12 June at Barden's Boudoir with White Williams. They've also been added to the recently previewed gig at The Cross Kings with Beach House and Wild Beasts on Friday 13 June, as well as put in the support position alongside Fennesz for the Yellow Magic Orchestra gig happening as part of Southbank Centre's Meltdown on Sunday 15 June.
The video seen above is for Pivot's song "In The Blood", which is available on an EP of the same name currently out on Warp Records.
