We are super stoked to welcome GENGAHR to the shop, for a super intimate exclusive live set as they launch their new LP, and third album ‘Sanctuary’ on January 31st via their new label Liberator Music.

We are in serious luck.

More expansive and ambitious than ever before, Gengahr are a band reborn. A testament to going it alone, Sanctuary is the experimental North London alt-pop four-piece’s finest body of work to date, a DIY triumph which welcomes old friend Jack Steadman of Bombay Bicycle Club as producer, adding his distinct brand of symphonic sparkle to Gengahr’s complex, layered sound.

Come and support this super intimate show, and grab some dinner at the same time! Live Music + Food (lunch) x Beer = #Heaven

We’ll also be selling a limited ‘Gengahr pie’ for with the filling chosen by the band, so that’s lunch/dinner sorted. It’s the weekend, so grab a beer too.

More details on the new LP below, and we can’t wait to see you there.

More expansive and ambitious than ever before, Gengahr are a band reborn. A testament to going it alone, Sanctuary is the experimental North London alt-pop four-piece’s finest body of work to date, a DIY triumph which welcomes old friend Jack Steadman of Bombay Bicycle Club as producer, adding his distinct brand of symphonic sparkle to Gengahr’s complex, layered sound.

Born of an epic journey, the follow-up to their acclaimed 2015 debut A Dream Outside and 2018’s Where Wildness Grows sees songwriter Felix Bushe tapping into personal pain but coming out fighting.

Mixed by the hugely in-demand Nathan Boddy (James Blake, Nilufer Yanya, Shame), Sanctuary runs the full gamut of human feeling, with the disco-inflected ‘Heavenly Maybe’ heavy with ennui as well as a powerful melody, detailing Felix’s experience of partying in order to distract him from his real life problems, while the soaring ‘Icarus’ sees him further opening up about the “world of pain” in which he found himself. Yet the beautiful, twinkling ‘Moonlight’ hints at a positive future. “I do want the album to be hopeful and ‘Moonlight’ is all about that,” he explains. “It’s a harmonious ending of unison and togetherness.” Written while in Vietnam with his wife, its lyrics turn Felix’s self-doubt into a lush, low-key eulogy for the bad times.

“I genuinely believe that this is the best record we’ve ever made,” says Felix. It looks like another epic journey is just about to begin…

 We are delighted to welcome back to the shop SMOKE FAIRIES. We have missed them.

The guys will be playing some songs from their new LP, Darkness Brings the Wonders Home, Their hotly anticipated first album in four years, will be released on 31st January 2020.

Smoke Fairies (aka Jessica Davies and Katherine Blamire) recorded Darkness Brings The Wonders Home with producer Phil Ek (The Black Angels, Fleet Foxes, The Shins) over the course of a rigorous month-long session in Seattle, drawing inspiration from mysteries both real and imagined: sea monsters, flocks of crows taking flight in extravagant formation, and strange creatures dwelling in the mud near their new South London abode.

“Times of darkness are when people are often the most imaginative,” says Jessica in reflecting on the album’s title. “It helps you to see all the wonders of the world you hadn’t noticed before – the things you’ve been blind to because you’ve been on autopilot for so long.”

Come and support this super intimate show, and grab some lunch at the same time! Live Music + Food (lunch) x Beer = #Heaven

We’ll also be selling a limited ‘Smoke Fairies’ pie for with the filling chosen by the band, so that’s lunch sorted.

The guys will also be playing live at the Square Tower in the evening – Tickets available HERE
