Ear Trumpet Folk Club: Alabaster DePlume (plus RHAIN)
A ruthlessly creative approach to experimental pop music delivers eastern-influenced anthems and “a reminder of how vital and adventurous music can be” (Guardian)
Ear Trumpet Folk Club: Regular intimate, sit-down gigs with some of the greatest musicians from around the globe.
Following 12 monthly development residency concerts and 3 viral video clips, this ruthlessly creative approach to experimental pop music delivers eastern-influenced anthems, under spoken elements that attempt to challenge and address divisive rhetoric recently prevalent in society. Ahead of an LP release on Lost Map produced by Danalogue (Comet is Coming) and Kristian Capitol K in early 2018, the show described in the Guardian as “a reminder of how vital and adventurous music can be” enjoys an emphasis on candid interaction, humility and warmth. Based in underground East London’s Total Refreshment Centre, saxophonist and spoken word artist Alabaster creates a new band each month in his development residency Peach. PRSF has funded his forthcoming 4th LP The Corner of a Sphere, following recent performances for BBC Radio 3, National Theatre and clubs festivals and theatres around UK.
“Totally unique… Very, very brilliant indeed.”
Max Reinhardt, BBC Radio 3
“One of the most thrilling performances I’ve seen this year; a reminder of how vital and adventurous music can be.”
Laura Barton, The Guardian
the Isle of Wight native, is a bold, powerful and honest performer, whilst her songwriting is acutely fragile, mythical and overwhelmingly melodic. 2018 sees brave new territory covered for RHAIN with adventures arrangements, ambitious production and charming lyrics.
“I saw her play a couple of weeks ago. …she’s got the most beautiful voice, reminds me of Bjork & Joanna Newsome.”
Huw Stephens, BBC Radio 1
“Isn’t that special!!”
Lauren Laverne, BBC Radio 6 Music
“Voice shimmers and soothes; remember her name.”
