London, UK


Turin Brakes celebrated the 20th Anniversary of their second album Ether Song in 2023 performing the album in full, along with other favourites, at sold out shows in the Autumn. Initially announcing just 3 dates, this was very soon increased to 9 due to demand.

Turin Brakes, founded by childhood friends Olly Knights and Gale Paridjanian, released Mercury Prize nominated debut The Optimist Lp in March 2001 (achieving gold status in the UK) and followed it up in 2003 with their most commercially successful album - Ether Song. Produced by Tony Hoffer (Beck, Supergrass, The Kooks) it hit number 4 in the UK Official Album Charts. Arguably more sonically adventurous than their debut it features the Top 5 hit single Pain Killer (Summer Rain).

“Knights' yearning vocals melt into a lush electronic soundscape, and Gale Paridjanian's guitar subtly complements the fragile web they weave” Guardian (2003 Ether Song review)
