Shattercones are 100-year-old slide guitar, glitchy electronics, viola loops, drums machines, heavy tom toms, synths, guitars, and vocals. If you could push the sounds of strings, pedals and electronics through a musical blender you'd find Shattercones condensing to form short films with cinematic landscapes, claustrophobic rooms with short bursts of violence, regret, loss and saudade.

Since forming in late 2018 Shattercones have provided soundscapes for several projects, including an immersive installation in Berlin celebrating feminist icon Elizabeth Barrett Browning; they also designed the soundscapes that accompanied the Twin Peaks UK Festival in October 2019. Live highlights include supporting New Model Army at the O2 Kentish Town Forum in November 2018, 1865 Southampton November 2019 and SWX Bristol October 2019.
Drawing from the same waters as Hildur Guðnadóttir, Nadine Shah, Ennio Morricone, Scott Walker, Suicide, Philip Glass, Dirty Three and John Coltrane, the band bring a unique and occasionally unhinged presence to any venue.
