Old Colours, Charlie Bath and The City Marshals and Matilda – The Vic, 25th March

OLD COLOURS – This is the first outing for the band that grew from the ashes of Anchor & The Wolf. If ‘Cinematic Folk-Pop’ makes you think of the latest Vodaphone advert, be prepared to think again. Old Colours mix Zoe Mead’s gossamer-like vocals with cello, …washes of noise, gang vocals, piano, found sounds… It’s a bit like Laura Marling playing a house party with MBV rocking in the next room. Sure to follow scene contemporaries like Daughter onto big things this year.CHARLIE BATH & THE CITY MARSHALLS – Charlie Bath is a Wiltshire-based songwriter with a fantastic take on the great American songwriting tradition. With a powerful voice, backed up by a really stunning band, Charlie will be introducing tracks off her soon-to-be-released EP ‘The Good Fall’. If you dig James Taylor, Ryan Adams, Fleet Foxes, Jackson Browne and Emmylou Harris, you’ll like this.

MATILDA – A beautiful mix of four-part harmony, intricate piano, delicately-crafted songs and an ear for a catchy melody, these ladies are truly unique. Taking cues from such diverse acts as the Be Good Tanyas, Joanna Newsom, The Supremes, The Beatles and owing not a small amount to the classical sounds of Chopin and Mozart’s chamber music, missing this band would be a very silly thing to do.
