Not entirely ambient, nor minimalist, nor jazz, The Necks create a music that is unique in the world today. Since their beginnings nearly 22 years ago, they have continued to craft an immersive, hypnotic, ritual-like concert experience. As The Guardian (UK) said: 'The Necks can find eternity in a grain of sand.' Their completely improvised concerts on acoustic piano, bass and drums have the room ringing with sound and the audience utterly mesmerized.
In the last couple of years, The Necks have been going from strength to strength; they have completed several tours of Australia, Europe and the US, performed at the Nick Cave-curated 'All Tomorrow’s Parties', collaborated in an acclaimed foray into theatre with Back to Back Theatre’s 'Food Court', performed with legend Brian Eno in a series of three sold-out concerts at the Sydney Opera House, and released their fifteenth album, Silverwater, in 2009.
