Portico – Living Fields LP
Portico’s album “Living Fields” (bought forward 1 week to a 30th March release date on Ninja Tune) is an album of catharsis and redefinition, born of a desire to create newness out of loss and change. You could also say that the band Portico themselves have undergone a process of ending and re-beginning.
Portico are Duncan Bellamy, Milo Fitzpatrick and Jack Wyllie. Previously they were three-quarters of the highly successful and critically-acclaimed Portico Quartet. But “Living Fields” is no continuation under a shortened name. As far as the band are concerned this is a debut.
There are three remarkable singers on this record: Joe Newman (Alt-J), Jamie Woon and Jono McCleery.
Living Fields is out 30 March via Ninja Tune. Catch the band in the UK on the dates below.
