ABOUT

We're musicians local in London Southeast. We perform on the gig circuit as duos and collaborate with one another as friends rather than getting married and breaking up in a band.

On full moon nights we break out into shoegaze, post-punk and noisecore as genre fluid musicians.

We work independently and relationally in a small cell of musicians playing flute, alto flute, panpipes, keyboards, harp, guitar, rhythm guitar, bass, cajon and vocals with a wide range of world instruments. We are soloist instrumentalists and prefer instrumentalist leanings: we do work with vocalists from time to time. At the moment we're concentrating on our own solo work; ensemble repertoire as well as experimentation and cross-collaboration in the avant garde field.

Influences

We play a wide repertoire spanning diverse genres - see our youtube videos (we don't stay in any category fixed for long). We really don't like any commercial or popular music with algorithmic formulaic structures. We do love quieter and more honest music - acoustic, singer-songwriter material, traditional, psych folk and American folk music, modestly amplified and played intimately. We love experimental cross-boundary music with electronics too!

Influences range from classical - Claude Debussy, Karol Szymanowski, Alexander Knapik, CPE Bach, Lovell Liebermann, Marin Marais to American singer-songwriters Mark Heard, Sam Phillips, T-Bone Burnett and contemporary bands like Rodan, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Woven Hand, The Walkmen and and world music repertoire.

When we perform music, we would rather sound like none of our influences and find our own voice as instrumentalist musicians.
