– BBC Folk RadioF
“London-based Snowpoet’s eponymous debut album is an ethereal, psychedelic, and magical combination of lyrical, nature inspired poetry and modern innovative folk music.”
Thought You Knew is the second album from Snowpoet, the London based band led by writing duo of Jazz FM Vocalist of the Year (2016) Lauren Kinsella and multi-instrumentalist Chris Hyson. The band also features Josh Arcoleo on saxophone, Matt Robinson on keys, Nick Costley-White on guitar and Dave Hamblett on drums.
Born out of a deep musical friendship and understanding, their acclaimed eponymous debut Snowpoet has garnered rave reviews and a devoted audience for their compelling sound, drawing comparisons with Bjork. Thought You Knew takes their musical collaboration and sound to the next level, blending sweet hook-laden vocal lines with warm and lush arrangements. This music is infectious, delicate and tasteful. With a new home at Edition Records, they are set to reach new heights in their profile, confirming their reputation as one of the most innovative and creative new bands in the UK today.
Join them on their PRSF Beyond Borders 2018 tour with performances in Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England.
Their Dublin show is presented by Improvised Music Company, as part of the SPECTRUM festival, in a thrilling double-header with Sons of Kemet on Friday 9th Marhc in new venue DBD (under The Mezz) on Eustace St, Temple Bar.
