Eyebrow is a trumpet and drums duo based in Bristol, UK, formed in 2009. Its music evolves out of improvisations which are reassembled into structured pieces with an unexpectedly cinematic sweep, like journeys through slowly-changing landscapes.

The band’s 5th album, Strata, was released in October 2017, and has been featured on BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction and BBC 6Music’s Freak Zone.

Paul Wigens (drums, violin) / Pete Judge (trumpet, electronics)

“Full of clever textures & engagingly atmospheric”  Verity Sharp, BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction

“An organic dabble in electronic possibilities” Jazzwise

“Evocative music with a strongly atmospheric and highly cinematic quality” The Jazz Mann

“Amazingly symphonic. The ideal place for their music would be a cathedral, perhaps, or a clifftop, or maybe an asteroid” The Bristol Post

“Sepulchral, dappled trumpet and real live meaty drums; Eyebrow have been doing this kind of thing for a long time and have become very good at it.” Independent on Sunday

“Underneath floating clouds of trumpet come real drums, simple and perfect. It sounds like two real people are in a room somewhere, playing this stratospheric music. Simplicity and humanity: it is beautiful.” Listomania Bath
