Mermaid Chunky / Mabon
1-2 Jewry Ln, Canterbury CT1 2NP
We invite you to celebrate the Autumnal equinox, and the opening of our Autumn season, with the glorious Mermaid Chunky. Named after a type of wool from their hometown of Stroud, their music is a charmingly disorientating blend of lo-fi ceremony and play. Songs from their album, VEST, have been described as ‘bass thumping schoolyard chant with a heart of darkness’ and ‘ranty cosmic synth empowerment’ (The Quietus). With a lightly-worn inventive brilliance two best friends dressing up and playing around opens up a dream-like ritual space which feels genuinely subversive.
