Wizzarding Promotions proudly presents to the denizens of Bristol, Avalon, and beyond:

A fresh Sunday night of tantalising glitchy electronic textured folk music at The Crofters Rights featuring Jilk and solarference + support from Ogives.


Jilk [Bristol]


Bristol based Jilk fuses a bewildering collage of home-found sounds with the ambient soundscapes of washy synths, insect-like clicks & cuts, and basslines to get any heads bobbing.


Following on from their EP ‘In Need Of Tess‘ Jilk are excited to release their album ‘Joy In The End‘ with Project Mooncircle. Their most fully realised and beautiful set of compositions yet. Through an apocalyptic narrative, the album explores themes of hope found in desolation and the eventual and inevitable cyclical return of loss and joy. An album for the current worrying times as well as the personal joys that can combat those worries.

This is Jilk’s most collaborative effort yet as a collective. The influences and styles are eclectic; strings, guitars, synths, brass, voice, percussion, noise, concrète and glitch meet to create an overwhelmingly alluring set of compositions. Delicate electronic textures frame neo-classical arrangements while heart wrenching vocals and guttural bass lines drive the album forward through 11 tracks of folktronic, drone based walls of sound.

In the words of Elie Wiesel “Just as despair can come to one only from other human beings, hope, too, can be given to one only by other human beings.”

‘Joy In The End’ comes out worldwide on limited handmade postcards (including download code) & digital.


Solarference [Bristol/Devon]


Solarference is Nick Janaway and Sarah Owen.

They combine traditional folk songs with innovative electronic sound-manipulation: unearthly but warm, lyrical and organic sound-worlds.

“Visceral and living… They find something new in the heart of these songs. A joy to listen to.”

– SpiralEarth ✩✩✩✩

“Artists of promise and consequence… Fragile sounds, hard beats, gorgeous vocals.”

– fRoots Magazine

“As enchanting as it is groundbreaking – truly English folk music for the 21st century.”

– Bright Young Folk

“Adventurous… daringly experimental… an intricate tapestry of jittery, edgy atmospherics”

– Folk Radio UK

“Radical recompositions… drawing deep from the digital well of endless possibilities”

– Songlines Magazine ✩✩✩


Some £s in advance through Headfirst Bristol + more OTD at The Crofters Rights, Stokes Croft.
