“Broughton’s live shows are miniature spectacles… He layers sounds in slightly haphazard ways, as though his songs weren’t so holy that he couldn’t subject them to chance” — Pitchfork

“The most brilliant and baffling show I'm likely to see this year.” — Timeout NY

“Straddling the line between music hall turn and avant-garde performance artist, Broughton’s live show is not to be missed.” — MOJO magazine

Live performances are sometimes unsettling, and feel at risk of everything falling apart. Somehow David remains in control. Since David's first few shows in his native Yorkshire in the early 2000s, he has performed at numerous festivals, toured extensively across the UK, Europe, USA and played a handful of shows in Japan, Korea and China.

His organic approach to loops includes all glitches and mistakes…
building pieces to let them destroy themselves, before swiftly moving into the next. On the face of it, a performance of sad self-deprecating songs and extended 'sonic strangeness' pondering the awkwardness of the human condition through the trial of love and loss. For those with patience it can reward with great moments of beauty, and sometimes comedic delight.
