Greg Gives Peter Space: The long overdue first collaborative work by Peter Broderick and Greg Haines reveals their mutual love for dub music with ‘groovy rhythms, heavy bass and spacey synthesizers.
“We are extremely excited to release this record in the summer time and to celebrate with a few select shows around Europe. We’ve enlisted our dear friend Martyn Heyne to help us perform the music live, and we plan on bringing as much of the original gear from the recordings as possible. After years of playing fairly quiet music for an often seated audience, we can’t wait to get on stage and bounce around to some groovy rhythms, heavy bass and spacey synthesizers. Prepare for take off! – Peter Broderick, April 2014.
With 5-part vocal harmonies and a distinctive yet delicate blend of classical instrumentation meets modern melody, Wooden Arms released their debut, self-titled EP with independent record label Bare Feet Records in the summer of 2013. ‘False Start’ taken from the aforementioned EP was the ‘headphone moment’ on Lauren Larverne’s BBC radio 6 programme and the band performed at a number of festivals in 2013 such as: Liverpool Sound City, Norwich Sound & Vision, Norfolk & Norwich Festival etc. As well as touring the UK extensively
The new double A side “Tide,” “December” was released on February the 13th – and Wooden Arms will be touring the UK and Europe in the following months to support this release.
“the band mix delicate piano with luscious strings and trip-hop inspired percussion to create something quite beautiful.” – Fresh On the Net ( Tom Robinson )
Their most recent single ‘December’ is comprised of ethereal female harmonies and unaffected lead vocals which cut deep into the marrow, sublime in their simplicity. December ascends through angular trip-hop drums and brass melodies which fall into a maudlin, macabre march, producing a song that is bold, intricate and irresistible. – The 405
Olympians are a music band. They started in Norwich but are now mostly based in London. They have released 2 EPs and ran a book-themed singles club throughout 2012. They record pop songs with as many instruments as they can find. Sometimes when they play live they play their songs live with guitars and shout a lot as it is more fun that way. On other times like this they take a moment to think about feelings and stuff and drown their songs in pools of melty drone and reverb.
