Through their re-imagination of the stripped back close harmony country and pop groups of the early 1960s, The Cactus Blossoms have developed an ageless rejuvenation of the classic sound for the modern era. Gorgeous harmonies are paired with minimal retro-sounding instrumentation. Vintage guitars, with their springy reverb are backed by subtle upright bass and soft brush hit drums.
They've had a busy year since they last visited the UK. David Lynch enlisted them to perform their latest track 'Mississippi' on the closing credits of the latest series of Twin Peaks, and this July they supported Kings of Leon on their BST Hyde Park Show.
“It won’t take more than one spin for these songs—all but two penned by Torrey– with their lovely, pure melodies and sharp wordplay, to get stuck in your brain.” - American Songwriter
~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Support from Louis Brennan London-based Dubliner Louis Brennan has released the poignant first single from his upcoming debut album Dead Capital. ‘Bit Part Actor’ is a dark gem of starkly insightful folk as the emotive singer-songwriter laconically recounts a period of his life filled with bitterness, despondency and anguish.
Brennan’s brooding baritone contrasts with moments of sunlit melancholy as he tackles utter despair with remarkable charm, elegance and wit. It’s an intimate, goosebump-inducing song, raw and striking in its honesty, yet featuring the black comedy that peppers the whole album.
Brennan’s sound is resonant with Johnny Cash’s rich vocal tonality, the opulent musicality of Tindersticks and Nick Cave’s deeply intellectual lyrical prowess, creating a deep, rich sensibility which marks him out as an artist of remarkable talent and immeasurable depth of mind.
