We’re delighted to welcome raucous Brighton-based sextet Opus Kink to Future Yard in February, as part of our programme for Independent Venue Week 2022. One of the brightest prospects around in British music at the moment, Opus Kink have already won admirers from across the spectrum for their infectious, horn-driven music which fizzes at the intersection of psych and soul.
Tickets on sale Friday 29.10.2021 at 10am.
Opus Kink were formed in Brighton in the late 2010s through a desire to marry together the members’ collective musical inspirations – punk, jazz, garage rock, art rock, European folk, country, blues, Latin and African music among others – and to lay over them a surreal narrative world of modern fables, hymns, vivid imagery and gothic storytelling. With a focus on a raw, darkly theatrical live show and prioritising experimentation in the studio, the band – whose notoriety has grown largely by word of mouth – stay creatively unpredictable and continue to elude category.
Opus Kink may be many things, including “horn-fuelled filth-funk, where punk and jazz combine in grimy circumstances” (Thomas Smith, NME Magazine), “barnstorming, infectious” (Steve Lamacq, BBC 6 Music), “a showdown to end all perception of genre… wearing their influences on their sleeves then ripping them to shreds” (Al Mills, So Young Magazine), a “raucous, intense blast of guitar pop” (Robin Murray, Clash Magazine), a “groove powerhouse” (Sarah Bolshi, Sunday Best Records), “unlike anything I’ve ever heard” (Henry Groves, Dark Side Music) and “a bit too lively” (Robert Smith, The Cure), but they’re not no god damned liars.
