English Vintage Jazz, Fuzzed-Out Psychedelia And Crunchy Indie Folk Rock Group
Debut EP 'Between The Earth And Sea' Out July 1
Named after the protest song that exposed American racism and sang most famously by musical heroine Billie Holiday, this London based four piece make darkly beautiful cinematic psyche rock.
Front woman, violinist and pianist Jenny Maxwell possesses a voice that is nothing short of astounding, going from a whisper to a heart wrenching, almost operatic wail in a second. Emotive and spine tinglingly impactful, it’s impossible not to be moved by its beauty and power.
Brothers Peter on bass and Jamie on guitar are the sons of Peter Perrett, frontman of the iconic band The Only Ones. The brothers first played together with Seb Roachford who went on to form experimental jazz band Polar Bear before joining Pete Doherty in the original line-up of Babyshambles.
They’ve already played with the likes of Florence and The Machine and Dizzee Rascal, as well as frequenting several UK festivals last year while continuing to headline sold-out club nights at various London venues. They will perform at this year’s Secret Garden Party and Blissfields as well as their own London shows.
July 1st sees the release of their stunning debut EP ‘Between The Earth and Sea’ that features five songs –‘Tell Me’ recorded and produced at Abbey Road with Greg Wells (Adele/Rufus Wainwright/Pharrell Williams/Katy Perry), ‘Falling’ produced by Strangefruit, ‘Ghosts’ & ‘Slowly Drift Away’, both produced by Max Dingle (The Killers, Goldfrapp, White Lies) and ‘Sea of Fog’ produced by Strangefruit and Pedro Andrade– that sound like the perfect soundtrack to a David Lynch film.
