Lineup:Lara AgarAngel ParkerEli Carvajal + Noa CarvajalStandard Jordan_________Just over a year ago, I filmed a glam-cowboy music video in and around the frozen marshes of East Anglia. Funded by you generous people, and made with the most talented, dedicated team, this was an experience that I feel boundlessly grateful for.We'll be screening the video for the first time ever at SET, Dalston Lane, and celebrating with live performances by three truly original artists: Standard Jordan, Angel Parker, and Lara Agar. I'll play a set too, in the original cowboy costume, with my twin Noa.

28 Feb


Celebrating the release of our new record 'Eastern Flow'. We'll be playing songs off the album plus a few old favourites.'Eastern Flow' was mixed by our good friend Mark Gardener and recorded at Abbey Road Studios by Haydn Bendall (Kate Bush), and Alex Scannell (The Bees), and Mikrokosm Studios by Beniot Bel (Thurston Moore), and is already being play listed at radio stations across the globe."It veers wildly, from a ‘Pet Sounds’ melody chamber one moment, to a night-time autobahn soundtrack the next. The experience is a ten-song kaleidoscopic sensory overload."


We are making it free entry, and if you want you can buy a vinyl copy one day ahead of release!
