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.
In the meantime, re-visit the original demo version of “Magpie”, which still sounds as exciting as when we first heard it.
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.
Entry is free with a festival ticket, or £3 otherwise. We’re kicking off at 5pm and going all out with a bang until the end. Set times are as follows (you’ll notice we’ve scheduled it so you won’t miss a minute of the action):
5.30 – 5.50: Robyn Sherwell
6.10 – 6.40: Still Parade
6.55 – 7.25: Khushi

Ahead of the official release of the “Phantoms” EP this coming Monday (3 March), two new KHUSHI videos have surfaced online – the official video for the lead track, directed by Ryan Goodman and Amer Chadha Patel, and also a live acoustic performance of the song at a Sofar Sounds night in London.
Watch both of them above. Don’t forget the EP can be pre-ordered on iTunes and also on white 10″ vinyl (mp3 download code included). KHUSHI plays his biggest headline show to date at Electrowerkz on Thursday 6 March to launch the EP (tickets here). This follows on from his recently completed dates with London Grammar, where he opened for them in Bournemouth, Birmingham, Bristol and Brighton.
Following on from his highly successful debut single “Magpie”, we’re very excited to be releasing KHUSHI‘s debut EP, “Phantoms”, on Monday 3 March. It’ll be available on white 10″ vinyl and digital download, and contains 4 brand new tracks. KHUSHI is due to play 4 dates with London Grammar on their current tour, starting tomorrow in Bournemouth, and headlines Electrowerkz in London on Thursday 6 March for the record launch. Support that evening comes from fellow “Blog Sound Of 2014″ nominees Hella Better Dancer, and Peter Lyons.
All information, including how to pre-order, can be found here, and you can stream the lead track below.
His debut single “Magpie” has been out for nearly a month now, and was yesterday featured on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch programme. The track was also added to the show’s Spotify playlist, alongside the likes of Rizzle Kicks, Arcade Fire, The 1975 and Bastille.

We’ve been away for a little while, but would like to think we’re back with a bang – our next release on the label (LFC010) will be the amazing “Magpie” by London-based KHUSHI.
Earning comparisons to artists like The National, Alt-J, Bon Iver and fellow Londoner Sivu with his brooding, emotive and timeless tracks, there’s been a tangible buzz surrounding KHUSHI in the last twelve months or so. As such, we’re over the moon to be putting out his first ever release on Monday 7 October (300 7″ & digital). The launch show takes place the following evening, 8 October, at Hoxton Plaza (tickets), and the limited edition clear vinyl can be pre-ordered from here right now.
Check out a new, revised version of the song below, which has just been premiered by Huw Stephens on Radio 1 and also over at This Is Fake DIY.
