Warm Digits are Steve Jefferis and Andrew Hodson; a trans-pennine, krautophonic blizzard-wave duo that emerged from Newcastle upon Tyne’s underground scene with a sound like Neu and Cluster forming a supergroup with Giorgio Moroder, Kevin Shields, Eno and Keith Levene. Their first album, ‘Keep Warm… with the Warm Digits’, came out in 2011 on Newcastle’s Distraction Records; Andrew Weatherall described them as producing some fine “machine funk kraut-a-delia” and the duo were soon went on to headline one of his Live From Outer Space events. Live, Warm Digits are a motoric epiphany of drums, guitar and pulsing hardware, complete with mesmeric kosmische visuals; all that on-stage multi-tasking making their live sets a dynamic kraut-disco experience. The last few years have seen Warm Digits release a second album entitled ‘Interchange’, tour with British Sea Power and support the legendary Goblin, St Etienne, Future Islands and ESG. Warm Digits now have a new album due out on Memphis Industries this August, featuring vocal contributions from Field Music, Sarah Cracknell, Devon Sproule and Mia La Metta.
