Ahead of Positive Blackout

Guillemots have compiled a new mixtape ahead of their Positive Blackout shows.

Guillemots have always been open about their influences. Admitting a debt towards left field classical music, the band have fused this with a love of a great pop song.

A new mixtape finds the band matching these two strands together. Compiled in honour of their Positive Blackout concerts, Guillemots open the tape with a Nils Frahm track before heading in a soulful direction.

Ending with the maverick output of Harry Partch, you can stream the Positive Blackout mixtape below.
