Armed with Anomie, the beast of a debut album, London’s Death and the Penguin set off on a tour of the UK ending at Brighton’s Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar ahead of their perfectly matched appearance at ArcTanGent Festival this weekend.  

Death and the Penguin have spent the past five years making fans in high places with their seamless blend of math rock, indie and hardcore.

With two EPs already turning heads expectations were high for Death and the Penguins first full-length release but when Anomie dropped on July 27th it hit just the right note for fans and industry alike.

Tonight’s 30 minute set started with an all-but-lullaby before exploding into a well refined display of the most perfect hybrid we never even knew we needed.

Compellingly complex instrumental arrangements makes this set a math rock dream decorated with not one, not two but three layers of wide-stretching vocals – one of which is a flawless indie/brit pop drawl from lead vocalist Toby Smith.

Anomie’s second track, The Calving Shuffle, is a stand out highlight for both the album and tonight’s set. Chopping and changing from one rhythmic section to another – the track is held together by an ear worm lyric that pins it in your mind for hours.

All of this sharp musicianship is packaged in an absorbing live show which, all in all, was about as progressive and dynamic as they come.
