Trwbador + Geese + Wolf Alice + Sarah Johns Music Party @ The Old Queens Head, 26th July 2012

Folie à Deux are incredibly proud to present Trwbador + Wolf Alice + Geese + Sarah Johns Music Party are playing at the beautiful Old Queens Head in Angel on the 26th July.

Like mind-blowing vocals, mad violins, drums and beats? This is for you! A FREE night combining electronic-folk, experimental anti-folk and avant-garde pop it is going to be a night of breathtakingly beautiful and exciting sounds.

--- TRWBADOR --- 

Trwbador are the wonderful electronic folk and 'avant-pop' duo from South Wales, described by Huw Stephens (BBC Radio 1) as 'one of the most exciting bands in Wales' and celebrated by 6 Music DJ's Lauren Laverne and Marc Riley. Combining minimalist yet experimental vocals and beats they create a beautiful, unique and hypnotic sound. Check out their beautiful sounds here: ('Sun in the Winter' being a personal favourite').

---- WOLF ALICE ----

Wolf Alice, recently headlining Communion, are a 4-piece band who mix electronic music with folk - simple, stripped down lo-fi instrumentation - accompanied by beautifully pure vocals from lead singer Ellie Roswell. The band have been around for a while but it is with their latest EP 'Wolf Alice' that they have really focused their eclectic sound.

You can hear their beautiful new single 'Wednesday' here:

---- GEESE ----

Geese are like the remixes they've produced for Hot Chip, Jon Hopkins, James Yorkston and David Homes, constructed entirely from the sounds of cellos, violas, violins and drums. A huge epic sound live they supported Mariners Children and Rozi Plain last January and totally blew us away. 'The music can alternately sound as though you're looking out from on high and observing miles of beautiful wilderness… For its quality and uniqueness, and full gamut of emotions, Geese is something to hear.'


Sarah Johns Music Party has this year supported the likes of Mariee Sioux, Maia and Liam Bailey.

Compared to the likes of Tune-Yards, Lykke Li and Camille for her raw and experimental approach to sound, unusual vocal arrangements and theatrical performances, Sarah's voice is soulful, sweet, yet enigmatic.

Accompanied by ritualistic drums and utilising a loop-pedal to layer her wide ranging vocals and percussion, she creates a sound that is pure, tribal, mesmerising and hypnotic. 'Calm yet theatrical, unusual and beautiful, lyrical yet melody-driven folk; with a Billie Holiday-esque twist to the use of her very flexible vocals. Unique.'
