I Am Kloot - first Australian tour announcement

I AM KLOOT 1B 5x4 v

I Am Kloot are the Manchester three piece who regale the world with their twisted torch songs and heart-wrenching serenades, will be coming to Australia for the very first time in 2011.

For a band that prefers to play live than be in the recording studio, I Am Kloots latest offering Sky At Night is full of reflection and nocturnal depth in the form of orchestras, choirs, saxophones and harps. Produced by Guy Garvey and Craig Potter from fellow Mancunians Elbow, the atmospheric beauty of the entire album saw it shortlisted for 2010 Mercury Prize - Album of the Year.
Playing intimate shows in Melbourne and Sydney before gracing the stage at Wisemans Ferry for Playground Weekender, this will be a truly special event not to be missed.

Bernard Zuel, Sydney Morning Herald
