Daylight music is a dazzling idea presented by the Union Chapel to open up their amazing gothic venue to a shiny new daytime crowd and provide a rather exciting platform for artists. Produced by Arctic Circle and supported by The 405.
Talk in Colour
By turns brooding, emotive and uplifting, slipping effortlessly between pure instrumentals and vocal driven tracks, London based quintet Talk In Colour's music defies easy categorisation. Together, the band blends electronic and organic instrumentation into a blistering aesthetic, drawing influences from Broadcast, Lamb, Battles, The XX, Berlin-era Bowie, Bonobo, early House and Hip-hop, with a nod to Afrobeat and Alice Coltrane along the way.
Son of a travelling musician, Jon Bilbrough (a.k.a. Wilderthorn) grew up crawling around studio leads with a backdrop of guitars, African drums, Doumbeks & thumb pianos. He would later be no stranger to the stage, performing his earliest gigs in concert halls usually graced by Ravi-Shankar in India and in other parts of Asia.
Infused with 'Sufi-style' singing, tribal rhythms and hymn-like ballads Jon's performances are spiritual and emotive, drawing upon the vibrant colours and folk tales of his travels. He has toured the UK supporting Athlete and performed alongside the likes of St Vincent and My Brightest Diamond and is featured on Nitin Sawhney's forthcoming album 'The Last Days Of Meaning'.
Rome Pays Off
'Rome Pays Off' are an active diversion for Mark Beazley & Crawford Blair, two founding members of Rothko, the original bass-troika minimaldronewhathaveyou.
They have completed a record entitled 'There's No Simple Explanation', the record's sound is that of two stereo bass guitars, drone, piano and some very faint reaKtor arpeggio. Many of the tracks are simple duets that took just a little longer to record than they did to write. This does not mean however, that the record is improvised. For live performances they are joined by Chris Gowers who plays tabletop treated guitar, as he also likes to do in the bands Karina ESP and Signals.
