MUSIC FOCUS: Muted Fnord


Formed in 2010 and based in Leicester, England, Muted Fnord are a curious ensemble of musicians and makers of noise spawned from a desire to explore, innovate and enjoy the world of structured sound. Ambient electronica and vocal looping meld with analogue fuzz, guitar and strings to create an ever expanding, layered sonic experience. Structured improvisation and sculpted glitch intertwine with a powerfully evocative female voice, recalling the work of Bjork, Massive Attack and Cocteau Twins. The group’s constantly evolving musical palette ensures that no two concerts will be alike, making for a vividly engaging experience that they look forward to sharing with a rapidly growing audience. Muted Fnord play at Firebug on Wednesday 15th with Moscow Youth Cult
