The Daylight Concerts are a series of free afternoon shows at the beautiful Union Chapel in North London.
The first of these features Seeland and Fireworks Night on the 4th April.
FREE ENTRY from midday - 2pm
Seeland was formed by Tim Felton (ex Broadcast) and Billy Bainbridge (ex Plone) in the winter of 2004/05 amid the fallout from Birmingham’s ‘Retro Futurist Electronic scene’ – a group of musicians and artists inspired by space age pop, the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Joe Meek and eccentric 60’s library music.
Having previously released two singles for Stereolab’s mighty Duophonic imprint they spent the last few years carefully crafting the contemporary psychedelic masterpiece that is ‘Tomorrow Today’.
Like the legendary producer Joe Meek, they blend abstract electronics with toe tapping pop tunes and like other psychedelic classics such as White Noise’s ‘An Electric Storm’ or ‘The United States of America’, Seeland have created an album that justifies repeated and deep listening.Take a trip to a place you know well but have never been.
On Fireworks Night:
Theatrical alt-folk from a London ensemble currently causing quite a stir. There’s echoes of Nick Cave here, and their unique orchestral pop has won them fans from the likes of Radio 1’s Colin Murray to a significant chunk of the music press.
"A dizzyingly talented dash-cutting ensemble trading in claret confessionals and gravel voiced, tobacco-stained drama, all told via sensitive piano work, nigh-on perfect string accompaniment and a fantastic songwriting flair." - Drowned in Sound
