It’s easy to be caught out by British electronic group Morcheeba, who have a sound that’s as fresh as a daisy but have actually been around since 1995. Their Who Can You Trust? debut in ’96 took the Brit festivals by storm in those mid-‘90s years, as did the Big Calm follow up in ’98. The band’s effective blend of trip-hop, soul, folk and indie-rock pulled in fans of the likes of Massive Attack, Beth Orton and Madchester bands like Oasis and The Stone Roses, so they had many bases covered. They’ve never really gone away, and last year’s Blaze Away is their ninth studio album. It’ll be great to see them stateside.
Morcheeba plays at 8 p.m. on Thursday, October 10 at the Regent.
