Headfirst Editor's Pick

"Intricate + intimate, Skydaddy (aka Rachid Fakhre of Spang Sisters) and eight-piece live band take timeless Cohen/Reed/Dylan-style singer-songwriting to orchestral heights on the Crofters main stage. A bullseye to the sweet spot between chamber pop and psych folk. FFO: Andy Shauf, Cate Le Bon, Aldous Harding, Cass McCombs."

A gig held at Crofters Rights on Friday 16th February. The event starts at 19:00.

Skydaddy, the moniker of London based musician and bandleader Rachid Fakhre, releases his debut EP, Pilot. Having spent the last few years writing and producing as one half of the acclaimed musical duo Spang Sisters, Skydaddy’s debut EP Pilot promises to be a ray of light bursting out from an increasingly busy London indie scene. Combining cello, violin, flute, piano and intricate vocal harmonies, Skydaddy cuts an utterly compelling figure, leading a fluid and interchangeable band, at its largest 8 people strong, they delicately glide through intricate passages of chamber-folk-rock, into swelling orchestral crescendos.
