Sax-bass-drums trio Partikel return with a new album, Counteraction, set for release on 24 March on Whirlwind Recordings, supporting the release with several UK and European live dates. Featuring saxophonist Duncan Eagles, bassist Max Luthert and drummer Eric Ford, the trio continue to explore new territory after their string-laden previous release, String Theory. Jazzwise is proud to present a video exclusive of the song 'Lanterns' from the new album below:
The new album once again features violinist Benet McLean alongside rising guitar star Ant Law on several tracks, as well as using subtle electronics to expand the group's soundworld. Partikel's profile has grown in the UK and abroad thanks to appearances at Love Supreme and Ealing jazz festivals, two tours in China and several dates in Belgium and Germany.
Launching the album at Kings Place, London on 11 May the band also appear at: The Queens Head, Monmouth (3 May); Cafe Jazz, Cardiff (4 May); Progress Theater, Reading (5 May); Arts Centre, Colchester (7 May) and The Verdict, Brighton (19 May).
