“Gorgeous, cinematic music” – Clash Music
“A brilliant young guitar band” – The Guardian

Port Erin are garnering near-cult status as purveyors of original genre-bending music. Two brothers – Reuben Myles Tyghe, vocals and guitar, flanked by Jacob on bass and Cerys Brocklehurst on drums. They hail from a very small village tucked away in South West England.

The past decade has seen them extensively tour the U.K. performing over 600 shows at some of of the U.K.’s most prestigious venues and festivals. Plus live sessions for BBC Introducing and BBC Radio 6.

Their musicality is magnetic with tightly wound dives and grooves. Cerys and Jacob’s rhythm section is a solid unit, Reuben drifts in-at times controlled and soulful but with moments of cornered fretting. A milieu of sonic textures are at play with echoes of jazz, coupled with mechanical Krautrock undertones. They are as punk as they are prog and as political as they are personal.

Drawing inspiration from the likes of XTC, David Bowie, Miles Davis, Syd Arthur, Talking Heads, Morphine and Tortoise.

Ocean Grey is an album of considered, quiet rage. Exploring earth waning themes of displacement and loss yet solace emerges in the thinnest of glimmers.

“Ocean Grey is well worth the wait” – Drowned in Sound

“West Country favourites of mine” – Tom Robinson | BBC 6 Music

“The band’s new LP (Ocean Grey) sounds awesome. The artwork could be from a Scandi-TV thriller and the music is somewhat similar. Tense, edgy atmospherics with lovely guitar textures. Very cool modern prog” – David Sinclair, The Times.
