Eyebrow_Garden City_Cover

Paul Wigens (drums, percussion, electronics) / Pete Judge (trumpet, electronics)

Eyebrow is a trumpet and drums duo based in Bristol, UK, formed in 2009. Its music evolves out of improvisations which are reassembled into structured pieces with an unexpectedly cinematic sweep, like journeys through slowly-changing landscapes.

New album “Garden City”, recorded at Invada Studios in Bristol by TJ Allen, with special guest Jim Barr on baritone guitar and bass pedals, is now available on New York’s Ninety & Nine Records. Order your copy here, or download from  iTunes or Amazon

“One of the most beguiling records I’ve heard in ages: music of quiet imagination and intimate beauty. I hope a lot of people get to enjoy it” (Richard Williams, thebluemoment.com)

“Amazingly symphonic. The ideal place for their music would be a cathedral, perhaps, or a clifftop, or maybe an asteroid” (The Bristol Post)

“Sepulchral, dappled trumpet and real live meaty drums; Eyebrow have been doing this kind of thing for a long time and have become very good at it. ‘Thaw’ – an insistent rhythmic ear-worm – is a belter” (Independent on Sunday)

“Bristol’s answer to Nordic Noir, the spare precision of drumkit paired with haunting FX-mutated trumpet echoing back from a cliff-bound fjord has an ageless simplicity that belies how subtle and clever the music is” (Bristol 24/7)

“Underneath floating clouds of trumpet come real drums, simple and perfect. It sounds like two real people are in a room somewhere, playing this stratospheric music. Simplicity and humanity: it is beautiful.” (Listomania Bath)

“The music is so damn beautiful. Right now it feels like essential listening” (Steve Day)

“Atmospheric, haunting, fascinating. Four stars” (AllAboutJazz)

“Unique avant garde soundscapes that draw you in and melt your troubles away” (JPSMusic)

“Trumpet, drums and electronics combine to produce bewitching soundscapes, minimal yet rich and moving” (London Jazz News)
