Nest Collective Presents Special Events

India Electric Co EP Launch April 2017

**** “Bursting with invention and full of surprises.” – The Telegraph

Sometimes folk, sometimes not. India Electric Company use traditional instruments in contemporary styles to explore diverse themes from Eastern Europe, Irish traditions and urban alienation to end up with something “quirky and glittery – a veritable musical magpie’s nest.” – Mary Ann Kennedy, BBC Radio 3.

After releasing their debut debut album The Girl I Left Behind Me in 2015 they began extensively supporting and accompanying Midge Ure throughout Europe. They performed live sessions on BBC Radio 2, 6 Music, as well as playing the likes of Glastonbury Festival and Cambridge Folk Festival.

In 2017 they’ll embark on their first tours of Australia, New Zealand, Scandinavia and Ireland to coincide with the release of their latest recordings.

**** “Their reeling, spinning sound corroborates the content of their songs which appear to be describing a life alive with motion. They are altogether a good thing, busy as rush hour but full of light.” – The Independent on Sunday

 

Sisika

“Amazingly delicate, hair-stand-up-on-your-neck harmonies. Ominous and beautiful. A distinct voice” The Fader
Sisika are a four piece from South London, featuring Georgia Duncan on guitar and voice, her sister Katie on keys and voice, David Coughlin on bass and Lucy Katz on drums. Combining close, earthy harmonies with warm guitar, melodic bass lines, minimal synth sounds and subtle drums they create intricate, freely arranged songs with a rootsy soul folk sound.
Last summer they played festivals including Glastonbury, Kendal Calling, How The Light Gets In (Hay-on-Wye), The Pumphouse Aldeburgh and Merge on Southbank – and gigs around London for the last year include at The Slaughtered Lamb (New Roots Promotions), Kansas Smitty’s, Jamboree and Queens Head Islington. They have just recorded their first EP, set for release in early summer.
