Chris Davids and Liam Ivory formed Maribou State in 2011. Their 2015 debut album Portraits earned them comparisons with The xx and James Blake, while 2018 release Kingdoms in Colour features collaborations with Khruangbin and Holly Walker. Live, Maribou State’s synthesised sound metamorphoses into a five-piece band, exploiting the tension between the artificial and the organic. Lush instrumentation, meandering tempos, ghostly voices, and rise-and-fall synth all create a slow-dance soundscape guaranteed to lift Green Man to another plane.
