The Sleeping Years will be playing their last show of 2008 at the wonderful Kick The Plug's Xmas Concert at The Wilmington Arms, London on Wed 3rd Dec.
Also playing will be Kat Flint and Catriona Irving, and the Neednowater DJs will be playing songs in between the acts.
TSY will be appearing as a full four piece band with acoustic, cello, piano and drums, playing songs from their acclaimed debut album 'We're becoming islands one by one'.
Drowned in Sound: 'a record that only Bon Iver's ‘For Emma, Forever Ago’ has really rivalled in recent months. 'We're Becoming Islands One By One' could be remembered as one of 2008's best of its kind in years to come'. 8/10'
'Grundle is emerging as one of our great off-centre songwriters'
The Word magazine '
'Tenderly focused, sparsely delivered and exquisitely tailored... 'We're Becoming Islands...' is a moment of refinement and rare beauty. An understated treasure if ever we heard one.'
Doors are at 8pm. Tickets are £4.
