Biography

Navvy are a 4 piece group from Sheffield. Keith plays bass and sings; Claire sings and plays percussion and keyboards; Marie plays the drums and Daf plays the guitar. The band formed in 2006 from the ashes of several underground Sheffield bands, and their first session with Pulp’s erstwhile producer Alan Smyth resulted their debut E.P. called “4 Songs By Navvy”. Navvy’s sound is sometimes angular and ferocious and sometimes poppy. Their songs are usually concerned with longevity and dysfunction. Their sound is fractured and percussive, both in Keith and Claire’s distinctive call-and-response vocal style and through Marie’s use of a percussion tree. Daf’s spidery guitar lines weave around the rhythms and the resulting sound can be described as “wonky” or “skew-whiff”.

    I think that my apparent love of cowbell is what entices me so about this band.
