Both Robyn Sherwell and KHUSHI will be performing at this year’s edition of Pete The Monkey Festival, which takes place in St Aubin sur Mer (76740), France, over the weekend of 11-13 July. Also on the bill are Peter Lyons, Lovepark and BAY. You can RSVP to the event on Facebook here.
Directed by Jodie Canwell. The “Ancient Light” EP is out now on Akira Records and available everywhere. Allman Brown’s previous video, “Sons And Daughters” (also directed by Jodie Canwell), has now surpassed 100,000 views.
In the meantime, re-visit the original demo version of “Magpie”, which still sounds as exciting as when we first heard it.
Catch her live at The Social on Wednesday 18 June supporting Allman Brown at his EP launch. Tickets available here.
We’re excited to say that Allman Brown will be releasing a new 4-track EP, entitled “Ancient Light”, on Monday 16 June via Akira Records. This is his first new music since last September’s “Sons And Daughters” EP (also on Akira), the lead track of which has accrued over 210,000 Spotify plays at the time of writing.
Allman will be launching “Ancient Light” with a special live performance at London’s Social on Wednesday 18 June. Support on the evening will come from Sophie Jamieson (who sings with Allman on new EP track “Fields Of England”) and Robyn Sherwell. Tickets are £5 in advance and are available here. Let us know if you’re coming by RSVP’ing to the event on Facebook.
We’re delighted to be teaming up with the good folk at Akira Records and Smashing Blouse to curate this quite frankly amazing bill at The Great Escape Festival in Brighton this year. Taking place at Latest Music Bar (14-17 Manchester Street) on the final evening of festivities (Saturday 10 May), we’ll have not one but two stages in the venue (downstairs plugged in and upstairs acoustic), jam packed with bands and artists we think are the real deal.
