SONS OF NOEL AND ADRIAN WINTER VILLAINS / EMMA GATRILL

8pm £6 adv / £7 doors SONS OF NOEL AND ADRIAN are back on the road and releasing a brand new album ‘Knots’. Breaking away from acoustic roots of their debut which saw them tour with MUMFORD AND SONS and LAURA MARLING, their new album is closer to their live sound with influences rooted in folk, post-rock, jazz and avant-pop. At times soft and orchestral, at times crass and loud, ‘Knots’ is infused with beauty and tenderness, soulful and with a new found love of kosmiche experimentation. facebook.com/sonsofnoelandadrian
