Unknown Mortal Orchestra (USA / NZL)

Portland psych-rockers Unknown Mortal Orchestra are returning to Australia to debut their upcoming fourth album Sex and Food. The band’s newly released singles ‘Not In Love We’re Just High’ and ‘American Guilt’ – which triple j described as “Prince doing stoner rock” – deliver the hypnotic psychedelic beat they are best known for.

Fronted by visionary Ruban Nielson, the band was last in Australia for a string of sold-out headline shows in 2015 with their critically acclaimed album Multi-Love, which continued Nielson’s exploration of his art, his life, and experience with polyamory through hallucinogenic funk and R&B.

“…I wanted to embrace this abandoned genre of rock music that I keep reading is “dead” and invite people to hear with this living dead genre sounds like in the UMO universe,” Nielson said.

UMO are a force to be reckoned with on stage and this live performance will be an altogether otherworldly jam session that will leave you hot and sweaty.

Suitable for audiences 18+ years.
