Molly’s Lips (a.k.a. Billy Glinn and Phil Self of Cocos Lovers,The Hellfire Orchestra, Will Varley) have been working hard these past few years. Their first release was recorded in their kitchen and printed up totally by hand. They’ve stepped it up for this release; drafting in Joel Magill (Syd Arthur) to record it and getting stellar musicians such as James Gow (Knee High, Lunch Money) and Raven Bush (Syd Arthur, Kate Tempest, The Gaslamp Killer) to play on it.

Along with the expected guitars, harmonies and strings this release sees the addition of reed organs, synths and live electronics to create a blend of atmospheric acoustic and electronic sounds.

 

 

Laura Frances is a haunting new voice in UK alt-folk, with a startling depth and a richly intense tone that instantly marks her out as one to watch, a unique new addition to the folk world . A dark, contralto Joni Mitchell, her songs are delivered with a refreshing brevity, wrapped in a cloak of misty melodies from a world rich in mystical imagery, where everything is half-hidden. She plays tonight as a three piece, accompanied by backing vocals and violin.
