Today I got some news that really shook me. I went for a walk and messed about with my camera to clear my head. Sometimes the best thing you can do is lose yourself in something bigger than yourself. The world. Which continues on regardless of where your mind is at.
I love stumbling across a band you had no intention of seeing but who blow you away. This week I went to see Olivia’s Owls at the Lexington near Kings Cross. I hadn’t heard of the band who followed them, they were incredible.
Native Dancer are a mix of jazz, electro and soul put together beautifully. Their sound comes across to me as being very well thought out, fluid and almost psychedelic . Performance wise, the whole thing felt full of positive energy and good vibes.
What you get with these guys is well-constructed, kaleidoscopic music and a lead singer who is that magical combination of talent, beauty and charisma. Along with delicious harmonies and synthesizers.
It is their EP launch on April 9th so if any of you people are about I’d get on that!
We have temporarily moved to Chorleywood whilst we are sorting out our next place to live, hopefully doing some building guardianship in London somewhere. Chorleywood is not exactly my first choice of place to live, but we are very lucky to have a place to live rent free while we sort our shit out! It’s also a nice change after living in the centre/south to be near so much green goodness.
