Tomaga channel various forms of multi-instrumentalism into music that moves by turns through industrial, jazz, psychedelia and minimalism, on it’s way to somewhere wholly other. Devoted to musical exploration, this London based duo obsessively deconstruct familiar tropes, looking for the tension that lies between improvisation and form.
Their second full length album ‘The Shape Of The Dance’ was released in September 2016 and has received acclaim from far and wide. Read interviews, reviews and previews here: Wire Magazine, The Quietus, Liberation, Vinyl Factory, Hartzine, The Drone, Noisey.
Having been invited to tour with such musical luminaries as Wire, Deerhoof and Silver Apples since their formation in 2013, Tomaga have established a reputation as one of the finest live acts around.
In autumn 2015 Tomaga were invited by Turner Contemporary Gallery in Margate to stage a performance using the artworks of Pedro Reyes: re-conditioned weapons confiscated by Mexican police from drug cartels and turned into instruments. The resulting performance will be released on a forthcoming live album. In spring 2016 Tomaga were invited to contribute a sound object to the Yoko Ono exhibition ‘Lumiere De L’aube’ at the Musee D’art Contemporain De Lyon.
