British electronic band Blancmange are excited to announce their first ever ‘Best Of’ Tour, celebrating 45 years since they first formed in 1979.
Blancmange fuses together a delicate mix of synthesisers and surrealism, which over the years has created groundbreaking singles such as Feel Me, Living on the Ceiling, Blind Vision and Don’t Tell Me.
In their post-punk early days, Blancmange made tape loops and experimental sounds with kitchen utensils, before developing into one of the definitive chart-topping British electronic pop acts. Since reforming in 2011, Neil Arthur has harnessed a duality of experimentation and seamless pop melodies to release a staggering 10 albums in the last decade.
“I have loved Blancmange for four decades.” John Grant
“Growing up in Chicago, British synth pop was hugely influential in the burgeoning house music scene. Blancmange was a big part of that and to remix one of their songs is a true honour.” Honey Dijon who recently remixed ‘Blind Vision’
“Listening to Blancmange obsessively. Probably the most under-rated electronic act of all time.” Moby
