Russell and Jess release their latest EP, featuring the recent single Fire, and live favourites SOS & Fight Tonight. Recorded with Oliver Som at Guy Chamber's Sleeper Studios (Robbie Williams, Miles Kane, Katy B), the duo's sound is driven and picked acoustic guitar, mercurial, bass heavy piano lines, lo-fi drums, and rich cello lines. They tell stories of every day passions, extraordinary moments and unsung heroes - all wrapped in beguiling, melodic vocal harmonies.
The result is an epic, yet intimate record - balancing poetic lyrics with widescreen sounds.
In the past year the duo have driven across the Country in a DIY tour of the UK, jumped on and off more German trains than you can shake a stick at, and curated and hosted a run of #Playtime music events at Member's Club Apartment 58. They've supported Simone Felice (of The Felice Brothers), Rachel Sermanni, Gilmore and Roberts, Jake Morley and Phildel.
The duo will be joined onstage by musician and artist friends. We look forward to welcoming you to a very special evening.
