Rumour Cubes

Rumour Cubes are a six piece instrumental band that fuse violin & viola, guitars, electronics and visual media into extraordinary cinematic soundscapes.

Working with poets and film makers and writing custom music software to sync videos to their live performances, the band construct a multimedia experience where dense ambient textures and intricate rhythms underlie beautiful melodies highlighted by violin and viola.

“They make music to make and break hearts, full of cinematic sentiment that gets stuck in your soul. Think of them as the soundtrack to your daydreams.” The 405
