The Nonidentical

Active since:

Featuring leading lights of the London alternative jazz scene, The Nonidentical combines ferocious improvising with intricate compositional textures.

Their forthcoming debut album “Material Tropes” is a politically charged record written in response to the London riots of 2011, Situationism and the climate crisis that revisits the question of whether and on what terms music can engage with ideas outside itself.
