Beyond Albedo are a Leeds/Sheffield-based improvisatory retro-futuristic synth-jazz 4 piece. This jazz/EDM quartet make original music that is exploratory and experimental, but also energetic and danceable. All members bring both traditional and genre-pushing elements to the band’s exciting sonic mix, resulting in a sound that draws from the jazz tradition while pushing it in exciting new directions.
Following a successful EP launch gig, they have recently performed a prime slot at Lancaster Jazz Festival to a full house and been selected on the latest Northern Line Roster by Jazz North. They have been well-reviewed by the esteemed Now Then magazine, with their track, ‘Cosmic Lighthouse’ being described as ‘surveying the deserted monuments of ancient alien empires, […] to pulsing sci-fi electronica, synths now driving the piece with bold, saw-toothed vitality’.
“We are so excited to dedicate time to writing new material at Summer Studios and we’re so grateful to Sage Gateshead for giving us this opportunity. We’re also really excited to meet all the other artists and mentors throughout the week.”
