The Torino-based experimental post-rock group LARSEN will be heading to the UK next month to promote new single from the recently released 'Cool Cruel Mouth' on Tin Angel Records. The critically acclaimed album merges dark electronica with underground New York smokey siren Little Annie 'Anxiety' Bandez. “Cool Cruel Mouth is surely the chilling 'anti-hero' soundtrack of the summer”. Larsen have been producing albums for the past 15 years releasing 13 full length albums, 2 eps and various dvds. Grabbing the attention of press on both sides of the Atlantic, including the Wire, they have performed worldwide sharing stages with Neurosis to Einstuerzende Neubauten. Collaborations have included Michael Gira, Matmos, Martin Bisi, Matt Howden, Lustmord, Deathprod, Origami Galaktika, Backworld, Jarboe, Nurse With Wound, Little Annie, Fovea Hex, z'ev and sci-fi icon Christine Schell. That's not to mention their side project XXL amalgamating two acts, Xiu Xiu and Larsen, and the many extra band members that join them on stage include David Tibet and Baby Dee of Current 93, Julia Kent and Johann Johannsson. Larsen have also released soundtracks, both for movies and theatre plays, including the award winner Cartoanimalettimatti (commissioned by the University of Torino for Winsor McKay‘s silent animated movies).
