Sealionwoman is Kitty Whitelaw and Tye McGivern – a musical partnership born from the cacophonous jazz-racket of Kitty and the Drowning Bag, a London-based power-trio featuring John Tillyer on drums. Their first incarnation fell dormant when Kitty ran off to join the circus in Singapore, but Kitty and Tye were reunited for a one-off performance in 2011. Galvanised by the response, they have reformed, relocated and revamped their sound. The duo now coaxes a brooding narcotic fugue from processed contrabass and laptop, mixing amped-up jazz standards with stripped down versions of their early classics.
