It’s been a decade on the road for Shearwater, which leads to the experienced band being able to draw on a very assured sound, with a live performance showcasing a tremendously confident edge. With another tour now happening, and more time on the road, they bring new songs and a strong back catalogue to The Cluny on Sunday 21st February.

A treasured band for a number of ardent fans, their eighth studio album captures the light and dark of our times, through loud, soaring, beautiful indie rock. The album, Jet Plane And Oxbow, is their second original full-length for Sub Pop, and could well go on to be their career-defining album—a huge leap forward musically and lyrically for the very intelligent band. Shearwater are quirky and original, with a gift for fascinating songwriting, so it’s time to discover Shearwater if you haven’t already.
