Below is our attempt at a comprehensive directory of folk artists currently on Twitter – of course, we aren’t Twitter deities and as such will almost certainly have missed out on certain artists. Let us know if you can think…
This Sunday’s free Bandstand Busk will be a particularly special one, so far as FFS are concerned, featuring as it will two of our very favourite bands. Troubador and -esses Peggy Sue, and bigger-than-a-football team Sons of Noel and Adrian will be appearing at Northampton Square Bandstand from 3pm on Sunday, 6th September.
When I looked up Theoretical Girl, (AKA Amy Turnridge), on wikipedia they described her music as Chamber pop- an odd explanation, but probably the most accurate! My description would go more like this: ‘50’s style romantic pop mixed with folk, electro and angst’. On the whole the album is sweet and full of catchy chorus’ that come off as innocent pop. However, after a closer listen you realise Amy isn’t all sweetness and light. When you really listen to the lyrics you hear lines such as “You’re the biggest mistake I ever made”…. “I should have loved you more”….. and “My love is unrequited” – suddenly she isn’t this little girl with cute ditties and romantic tales- she’s you and me.
Theoretical Girl’s debut album, Divided, is released today, and this auspicious occasion will be celebrated with a launch party at The Lexington before the lady herself puts in a free instore performance at Pure Groove this Wednesday.
Theoretical Girl, who is, in fact, a living, breathing and rather nifty singer-songwriter from Southend on Sea, offers a hint of evolution on her new single, ‘Rivals’.
The folks at bandstand busking have announced the first busk of the spring. FFS’s favourite boy-girl shout-folk duo Slow Club will play alongside Theoretical Girl this Sunday 5th April at the Northampton Square bandstand in Islington, North London.
Electro-tinged folk-popper signs to Memphis Indistries to produce her first studio album.
We Say: Theoretical Girl makes electro-folk-pop which never fails to delight her audience. They Say: “….goth-pop genius….” – NME “…lovely…” – NEU MAGAZINE “…stone cold brilliant….” – NME “this is a recipe for truly amazing, joyous and heavenly simplistic music.”…
