Warmer Than Blood

Warmer Than Blood (WTB) is the new trio from critically acclaimed composer and guitarist Chris Montague (Troyka, Squarepusher). It brings together the pianist, and ECM recording artist, Kit Downes and renowned electric bassist, Ruth Goller (acoustic Ladyland, Melt Yourself Down, Let Spin). The dynamite trio have collaborated extensively in recent years establishing a distinct musical intuition and bond. Montague’s latest compositions provide a fresh sonic exploration between the three artists. The unusual mix of electric bass, piano and guitar creates spellbinding soundscapes of dark textures, visceral pools of harmony, kinetic improvisation and percussive prepared piano. WTB perform the kind of music that lingers in the ears long after the tune has ended. At once foreboding and tender, composed with a scathing intricacy that belies its emotional breadth.

Line-up:

Chris Montague – Guitar

Kit Downes – Piano

Ruth Goller – Bass
