Playlist: Turner // Return

This Thursday, local artists will be taking over the Ferens Art Gallery, the home of Turner Prize 2017, for Turner // Return – an evening of creativity and celebration in Hull.

As part of the evening, jam packed full of art, debate and dance, there will also be a selection of incredible live music upstairs in the Thomas Ferens Gallery.

Headlining the evening in the Turner // Live space, will be the fabulous Polo, with their glacial atmospherics and lush, r’n’b- tinged pop. Following a string of key radio plays, including Radio 1, Radio 6, XFM and Amazing Radio, Polo completed their first UK tour, selling out small venues across the country. Building upon that success, Polo released the wobbly and woozy ‘Zeitgeist’ in September, 2017 and are now set to release a sophomore EP in February, 2018.

Supporting will be multi-instrumentalist, Kev La Kat, live looper and the label boss at Love Our Records. After seven years of heading the label, Kev has connected the local scene with international audiences and worked with artists based in London, New York, Madrid, Austin and many more and has been supported by everyone from BBC Introducing to Vivienne Westwood. Kicking off Turner // Live will be off-kilter “almost pop” musician, who’s album features tracks about beauty contests, plagiarism, facial tattoos and strawberries. 

To get us ready for the evening (with a pop-up prosecco bar!) we’ve put together a playlist of our favourite tracks from the artists.

Check ’em out.
