With their 11 piece band, The Unthanks mark the Autumn release of their new album, Sorrows Away. The Unthanks have been described as a take on tradition that flips so effortlessly between Jazz, Classical, Ambient and Post-Rock, that it makes any attempt to put a label on them a waste of time.
The Unthanks makes music cutting-edge enough to be BBC 6Music regulars. They can equally be found on Radios 2, 3 and 4, reframing history and drawing together the worlds of Folk, Jazz, Orchestral, Electronic and Rock Music. The believability of their storytelling is admired by some of our best storytellers – Mackenzie Crook, Maxine Peake, Nick Hornby, Martin Freeman, Robert Wyatt, Charles Hazelwood, Ben Myers and David Mitchell, to name a few.
The Unthanks new album, Sorrows Away is perhaps both the pinnacle and yet just the latest in their story so far.
The Unthanks have covered a lot of ground in the past decade and watching them evolve over this period has been truly inspiring. Phillip Selway (Radiohead)
