Deliaphonic x Boudica presents Stealing Sheep’s Wow Machine
18th October 2019
The Herbert Art Gallery and Museum

Liverpool electro-pop trio Stealing Sheep present a theatrical-musical-dance-art spectacular, in tribute to the electronic music pioneer Delia Derbyshire. Expect a hexagonal stage, sci-fi sunglasses, and sparkly suits.

Big Wows is heaving with the sort of bold neon pop production that’s symbolic of the information overload we like to cram into our brains on a daily basis. Each track is a well-woven mesh of sharp synths, cyber sung vocal harmonies and thumping rave percussion. During the music video to lead single ‘Joking Me’, each member features as their own pixelated avatar in a distinct image of the kind throwaway digital cultureBig Wowsconsistently refers to. Stealing Sheep’s admiration for electronic music pioneer Delia Derbyshire remains apparent throughout. Engineered mainly through sequencing and drum machines, Big Wows humanises each robotic motion giving definite life to the concept of unique computer emotion. Big Wows provides its own relevant input to the conversation of its ever-evolving culture. Loud & Quiet The third album from the British trio features a variety of producers, including MartaSalogni, Andy Smith, Ash Workman, and Joe Wills.

“For their third album, Liverpool’s Stealing Sheep blow up the pop form to bold, voltaic proportions” – The Quietus

“Big Wows is shot through with Glittery bounce and buzzing synth lines..Three albums they’ve attained a mastery of their craft that’s a joy to behold” The Skinny

****“Stealing Sheep are responsible for some of the most progressive pop songs of the past decade” – London In Stereo“Sophisticated pop…shimmering, groove-heavy and playfully effervescent” – Classic Pop**** The Guardian
