Northwest are an experimental-pop duo based in London, formed by Spanish multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer Ignacio Simón and visual artist, producer and singer Mariuca García-Lomas. Their music explores different genres, from contemporary classical music and avant-garde electronica to experimental pop, psychedelia and trip-hop.
Northwest was founded in late 2015 and have since become one of the most interesting musical projects within the European underground scene. Their music has been described as innovative and groundbreaking and their sound has been defined as cinematic and ethereal. Their live shows are a full immersive experience combining music, dance and visual arts and have been referred as hypnotic and mesmerizing. They have been compared to other acts like Scott Walker, Broadcast, Julia Holter and Portishead, among others, but Northwest are, little by little, crafting and developing a unique musical and visual universe.
Two self-titled debut LPs were released in 2019 to critical acclaim. Both albums, I & II, were self-produced and recorded in different spots in UK, France and Spain, including an old church in the English countryside or a university hall in London.Northwest steadily tour all around Europe and have already performed in cities such as London, Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, Moscow, Prague, Bratislava, Warsaw, Riga, Vilnius, Madrid, Porto, Brussels, Novi Sad or Naples. They also often collaborate with other visual artists, dancers and fashion designers to improve their live performances. After an eighteen-month touring hiatus, they’ll be extensively touring all along 2022, spreading their unique and breathtaking universe all around the world.
