North London’s hot new understated talent drops his debut album, Allow It To Come On, this 14th January 2008.
Recorded in Jack’s bedroom in North London, it is the culmination of a year’s gigging, bizarre encounters and sleep-deprived bar room madness.
A lo-fi and intimate venture, this full length effort lies somewhere between the depths of Red House Painters and the quirky psychedelia of Devendra Banhart. It’s chilled and addictive though, by turns reminiscent of Coldplay, Badly Drawn Boy and Damian Rice.
Tracked in the sweltering confines of a tiny attic room on Blackstock road, Cheshire’s dramatic melodies evoke a sense of deep melancholia and are fully tuned into the brooding beat. The terrible rainstorms in July, which pummeled the roof and window, were accidentally captured on the closing track, The Old Easy Way, and became a welcome addition.
Check him out on 31st January 2008 at The Betsey Trotwood, London
