Listening to the music of Common Tongues is like catching smoke; Its tangible essence might just be in your grasp when it twists and curls into a wisp of something else entirely.

These melodically noisy art rockers dance on the boundaries between rasping acoustics, bubbling electronics, intricate harmonies and acid-dipped violins. The Brighton 5-piece offer an absorbing, vital hit at their live shows whilst their records reveal immersive arrangements worthy of multiple listens and lyrical themes of conflict, decline and rebirth.

The band have travelled far and wide playing big, anthemic main stage slots at Secret Garden Party, Bestival, and Sligo Live. Whilst showcase gigs such as Liverpool Sound City, The Alternative Escape and Reeperbahn have built the bands experience they have also supported Brit award nominees Villagers and upcoming alt queens Larkin Poe. They have also demonstrated their ability to do intimate, heartbreaking acoustic sets at, amongst others, Cambridge Folk Festival, and live on Dermot O’ Leary’s Radio 2 show.

Their Gavin Monaghan (Editors/Scott Matthews/Robert Plant/The Twang) produced single New Moon is due for release 25th May 2015 and taken from their forthcoming debut album, and while the language of Common Tongues is their own, when you choose to listen, you won't help but understand it.
