Canadian freak-folk and psychedelic-folk music group Timber Timbre is coming to perform in Shanghai as part of their China 2019 Tour.
Hailing from Toronto, the mastermind behind the band is Taylor Kirk. The frontman has a powerful, arresting-veering-on-creepy presence on stage, with theatrical gestures counterbalanced with restrained, deep and smooth vocals to create their signature raggedy, swampy blues sound that seems to ascend from an alternate universe. The band, which has been labeled anything from “southern gothic” to “psychedelic freak folk” has been together for almost 20 years, growing a relatively underground, but loyal and increasingly international following over the years, along with a slew of prestigious independent awards. Their music is absolute gold: humorous, disturbing, poetic and successful in striking an uncanny balance between highly charged and energetic orchestrations with dreamy, drifting melodies.
