"The music is jazz inspired chamber music, but with typical English touches, evoking Wyatt, Canterbury, Recommended Records related groups, a.o. The performance is lively and organic, coming from a positive chemistry between the players. Cole composes catchy tunes that are worked out in fine arrangements. Nice job!"- VITAL WEEKLY

Metamorphic are an octet of some of the finest improvising musicians in the UK, who play compositions written by pianist and bandleader Laura Cole, based on her emotional journeys and personal experiences. The Two Fridas is their third album; their two previous albums, Coalescence (2013) and The Rock Between (2011) received widespread critical acclaim, with the music described as ‘amazingly original’ (Jez Nelson, Jazz on 3); ‘highly personal and self-revelatory’ (John Fordham, The Guardian); ‘compelling and ear-catching’ (Peter Quinn, Jazzwise); and ‘utterly remarkable’ (Brian Morton, Jazz Journal).

This is a group who really relish playing together, and the sound and intention behind this music is one that has hugely evolved in the ten years the band have been playing together. Metamorphic explore the intensity of collective experience, with Laura Cole’s compositions as a starting point, through spoken word, improvisation and tightly written passages.
