Singer-songwriter Oliver Downes blends intricate, percussive piano playing with instantly hummable melodies and thought-provoking lyrics.
Packing ‘soaring melodies and sharp wit in equal measure’ (Tone Deaf), his debut album ‘Ultraviolet’ (2016) took a leaf from artists such as Ben Caplan, Kate Bush and Rufus Wainwright, to offer a sweet blend of dreamy ballads and exhilaratingly kinetic tunes.
Joined by Joshua Kreusler (electric guitar) and Jack Towers (drums), expect chamber pop tunes with a unique jazz inflection that chart a musical passage through the darkness into the light.
‘[Downes’] compositions and arrangements create nebulous, ethereal soundscapes, deftly woven by the tensile orchestration… Give your mind permission to wander’ (The Music).
Singer-songwriter Imogen Pemberton mesmerises with lush vocals, soaring melodies and sophisticated guitar playing. Her debut EP ‘Spine’ (2016) captured her own unique vision with folk ballads that are haunting, heartfelt and raw.
Displaying a maturity beyond her years, Imogen channels a pure, organic tone to conjure soundscapes that break the heart and nourish the soul.
