The next London date for The Sleeping Years will be a very intimate show at The Betsey Trotwood on the 18th Feb.
Appearing as a duo with acoustic guitar and cello, TSY will be playing at the single launch party for their friends Soy un Caballo.
Soy Un Caballo are a Belgian couple who write and perform songs of exquisite fragility, and record them in Brussels with an amazing line up of musicians such as Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy (Will Oldham), members of Raymondo and producer Sean O’Hagan (The High Llamas).
Soy un Caballo have teamed up with Tunng on their new single. Released exclusively on gold 7” vinyl, this extra-special limited single has Tunng’s version of Soy Un Caballo’s Robin on the A-side, with the band’s original version on the flip.
“We met Soy Un Caballo on tour in Belgium and France and ended up drinking wine and swapping numbers,” says Tunng frontman Sam Genders. “We kept in touch and they asked if we'd be up for doing an English version of one of their songs for a seven. I remembered Robin from seeing them play live and it was my favourite.”
