Unknown Mortal Orchestra is an American/New Zealand rock band with members hailing from Portland, Oregon, and Auckland in New Zealand. Formed in 2010, the band currently consists of frontman Ruban Nielson, bassist Jake Portrait and drummer Riley Geare.
Known for their eclectic brand of rock music, that harnesses elements of indie, psychedelic, and garage-style rock, Unknown Mortal Orchestra have quickly made name for themselves worldwide - their 2011 self-titled debut received a load of critical acclaim, and earned them a deal with Jagjaguwar.
They followed with sophomore album 'II', in 2013, and 'Multi-Love' in May 2015.
The band are back in 2018 with a new album, 'Sex and Food', which dropped in April 2018. They supported the record with tours in the US, Australia and Europe, and return to the UK for another tour in November.

UMO sounding great as always, taking a slightly different approach to their music with more funk. The swirling jag still defines UMO's sound and Ruban's voice as good as ever. I have seen hundreds of bands over the years but as far as musicians go these guys really know what they're doing. Swimming with sharks to the funk of multi love, the songs still strong as ever. Great intimate venue and easy to get drink. fantastic night

A simple glance at the tracklisting would lead you to think that ‘Sex & Food’, the fourth album by Unknown Mortal Orchestra, is intently focused on the political context in which it was born. Ours is a world of technological turmoil and political pandemonium, and more than half of the song titles here scream of a critical appraisal of our current climate.
