A four piece from South London, Sisika play soulful, sparsely arranged songs with close harmonies, warm melodic guitar, rhythmic piano lines and subtle grooves. The band draws on a range of influences to create their sound; from old folk harmonies, to triphop beats and rootsy jazz. Their debut EP is released this October.
London based acoustic singer-songwriter Ned Roberts was discovered by producer Luther Russell (Sarabeth Tucek, Richmond Fontaine, Noah & The Whale). The first single ‘Red Sun’ featured frequently on BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio Scotland, and Radio 3, with the follow-up ‘Blues #6’ championed by Lauren Laverne, Jo Whiley, Gideon Coe, and Huey Morgan on BBC Radio. The new album is due for release later in 2016.
HOUSE ABOVE THE SUN
House Above The Sun are a roots rock group from south London led by singer/songwriter Jim Moreton. Distinguished by rich male/female vocal harmonies and inventive guitar motifs, they play melodic and poetic songs with a soulful stripped down feel, ranging from bittersweet country soul balladry to groove based, tightly wound guitar epics. They are preparing to release their first full album by the end of 2016.
