Formed in 2015, after a concert in which they joined an anti-violence demonstration in the USA, Irreversible Entanglements immediately became one of International Anthem’s leading bands. Introducing themselves as a free jazz collective interested in freedom and social justice, they combine a sound that has been dragged over hot coals with the pointed words of poet and activist Moor Mother. Onto a core of free jazz they layer a rhythmic hip-hop element, spoken-word poetry, punk energy and an incredibly involving musicality that made Open the Gates, their latest album, one of the picks of 2021 among jazz and indie publications. Feverish, inspired and hitting the stage on the opening night of Jazz in Agosto.
