Morcheeba Hold Their Head up High on Tour
Morcheeba dropped their album Head Up High last year—the second with singer Skye Edwards back in the band (she was absent from 2003 to 2009)—and they’re still going strong off of it. They’ll be on a wide-reaching world tour through the summer, playing tracks from all their albums. The tour kicked off in March, and they’re set to play shows in Auckland, New Zealand; Wellington, New Zealand; Sydney, Australia; Washington, D.C.; Philadelphia, PA; Brooklyn, NY; New York, NY (at Irving Plaza); Boston, MA; Bruxelles, Belgium; Nice, France, and more. Enjoy their signature trip-hop sound (with a bit of new dubstep thrown in there) by picking up tickets now.
London-based Morcheeba mixes trip-hop, rock, adult contemporary, folk, downtempo, and dubstep to create a signature sound, and it’s this sound that’s taken them through eight albums since 1995 (two of these have reached the Top Ten in the United Kingdom). The band achieved commercial success with their sophomore release, Big Calm, which moved slightly away from trip-hop to a more pop-oriented, single-based sound. Fun fact: the band’s name comes from “more” (meaning mediocrity) and “cheeba”, which is a slang term for marijuana.
