Fresh from playingThe Great Escape Festival last weekend, Hackney-based indie-folk quartet Hazey Jane have just released a new single ‘Lifeboat’:
Their songs combine traditional folk storytelling with arena sized pop hooks, swooning four part vocal harmonies with fingerpicked acoustic motifs and delicate electric guitar lines. Indebted to Nick Drake, CSNY and John Prine, the band breathe fresh air into London’s burgeoning folk scene.
Bobby and Laurent met at Secondary School, playing their first show together aged 14. The duo continued to write and perform into their early twenties before Paul and Connor joined in 2014 to expand on the band’s acoustic arrangements.
May 25 – The George Tavern, London [EP Launch Party]
