East London folk band Stick In The Wheel are headed by singer Nicola Kearey, and guitarist/producer Ian Carter. Known for their fierce, raw delivery, this is culturally and politically switched on music, with the group being widely commended for their timely appraisal of English Folk. Their skill in telling stories through song that reconnect modern audiences to the past draws unexpected parallels between then and now. Their second album ‘Follow Them True’ (January 2018), led UNCUT to proclaim them as “Britain’s most exciting new folk band”. The songs within examine rituals and cycles, our inherent power to change ourselves and the world around us, ghosts and death, land and place, thieves and beggars. It continues to question the notion of what folk music is, and what it means in 2018. The new album expands the radical sound of their debut to include electronic and found sounds, yet at the same time remaining totally connected with the tradition. Pushing the boundaries of this music hard, with such energy and intensity, has brought connections with new, modern audiences, who can’t get enough of this vibrant band.
