~ DUSKY SUNDAY ~
Dusky Sunday is an indie-folk duo comprising of established musicians Fern Teather and Sam Thurlow. Drawing comparisons to Slow Club, Gabrielle Aplin, and Fleetwood Mac, Dusky Sunday stands out from similar bands and artists with their unique combination of catchy, lyrical songs played on acoustic guitar and hand-percussion – topped with Fern’s smooth yet powerful voice, and tailed with Sam’s bassy backing vocals.
In June 2019 Dusky Sunday released their debut album ‘Gradients’ featuring singles ‘Make It Rain’ and ‘Oceans’, the latter of which climbed to number 10 in the iTunes singer/songwriter charts!
“A stunning duo who’re making big waves with their playing and songwriting.” – Stephen ‘Foz’ Foster, BBC Radio Suffolk
~ FALSE COLOURS ~
False Colours are an electro-acoustic folk duo consisting of David on the lesser seen electric and acoustic tenor guitars and Polly on the bass (both on vocals with harmonies galore!). Hailing from Sudbury in Suffolk, their catchy, melodic music is consistently described as “unique,” and their performances “entertaining.” Having begun performing together as a duo on the Sudbury acoustic scene in April 2018, they quickly gained attention from local radio stations, including BBC Introducing in Suffolk, and have gone onto perform at some of East Anglia’s best and coolest festivals such as FolkEast (Soapbox Stage 2018 and 2019), Harlequin Fayre and Cosmic Puffin, and tour many of the region’s wonderful and varied folk clubs, one of their highlights being at Ely Folk Club where they supported the lovely (and herself very supportive) Miranda Sykes of Show of Hands. False Colours were also inducted into the hall of fame at the 2019 NMG Awards at the Apex in Bury St. Edmunds, where they were inducted into the hall of fame for completing a twenty week stint in the Cambridge 105 Radio Unsigned Chart.
“I think this is my top song for 2018 [Make Yourself a Sandwich] … I spent a good two hours yesterday just watching everything [False Colours content] online and listening to the EP and I’m a fan! I love folk music and feel like this is great. These are great artists and I’m all in!”
Angelle Joseph, Presenter, BBC Introducing in Suffolk (speaking live on air on the Boxing Day Special 2018)
The duo pride themselves on their innovative and varied songwriting, creating a completely original and attention grabbing set of songs that somehow manage to have both a modern and traditional folk feel. The songs are always delivered with good natured humour, (laughs at False Colours gigs are guaranteed!) but also professionalism and craft that comes from their years of musical study (grades to degree level on various instruments) and their work as professional musicians.
