‘Ebullient, heartfelt alt-folk duo’
‘A cross between The Tallest Man on Earth, early Bon Iver and The Lumineers’
From Matthew Lowe (Keston Cobblers Club) and Daniel Trenholme, comes the new alt-folk duo Stables.
‘Beyond Brushes‘ (their debut album) was released to critical acclaim and was championed by the likes of BBC’s Steve Lamacq, Tom Robinson and BBC6 Recommends amongst others, soon establishing them firmly on the circuit, with a growing fan base.
Stables put emphasis on ‘energy‘ when playing live; switching instruments and producing the sound of a full band, with big harmonies and varied styles. Matthew says; ‘I always wanted to create a simple sound that could then be taken further when needed, from a small folk club, to a large festival stage’. Stables have gone on to tour the UK further, performing at major festivals including Glastonbury Festival and several European, headline tours.
Stables’ second album, ‘Reverie‘, will be released at the end of February 2018, and has been tipped to surpass their debut. ‘We’re incredibly proud of this record and can’t wait for people to hear it. This is the album we always wanted to release when we first imagined Stables. We love our debut, but this feels like the sound we always set out to produce’.
