Listen to The Untied Knot


Ancient & Modern, Winchester 27-2-14 – CANCELLED

Unfortunately, due to a situation largely out of our control (at our end) we have had to cancel our appearance in Winchester on 27-2-14. We’d like to thank the organisers for being so understanding under the circumstances and we hope to return in the near future. Apologies to anyone who was intending to come along and see us but the night will still go ahead with a great line-up of music.

We will be back soon!


Matthews Yard, Croydon 3/10/13

A new live date – we are playing at Matthews Yard in Croydon on Thursday 3rd October as part of the Croydon Oxjam Festival. Time will be confirmed shortly.

Rough Trade review

Rough Trade’s review of “Rien n’existe”rough-trade_logo

“The Untied Knot have, on “Rien N’Existe” constructed a meditative space and slowly poured in slow, unfurling melodic strands and chimes that solidify over time. With some gorgeous acoustic guitar arpeggiation providing a harmonic bed for sailing e-bow and synth, “Rien N’Existe” is an accomplished step into a womb-like sonic existence, warm, enveloping and quietly brilliant in it’s dynamics.”
