Ålesund // Agata // Rookeries

— Crofters Rights
An atmospheric night of alt pop
price: Tickets Below


Ålesund return with ‘A Thread In The Dark’, a follow up to 2020’s ‘All Hail to Your Queen’. Following the untimely curtailing of their European Tour in Spring 2020 thanks to the COVID-19 outbreak, they came back home and used the lockdown as a time to write, demo up new ideas and record a four track EP.

Throughout the EP Alba’s intoxicating vocals take on totally different auras that interchange based on the musical landscapes they’re placed against; soaring atmospheric synth-laden soundscapes, shimmering guitars and tantalising grooves.

Lyrically, the songs were inspired by being so still and so quiet in lockdown and being able to hear and see things that would have previously passed you by.

‘The usual hustle and bustle of life can drown things out, but with everything and everyone stopping, it brought a magnificent clarity. Hearing the birds sing, watching the trees blossom, following the cycles of the full moon. Thinking more about what is real, what is important, human instincts, human interactions, the natural world and how we all work together within it’, states Alba.

Imagine a London Grammar and Florence + The Machine hybrid. Got it? Now add ethereal, Nordic imagery similar to that of AURORA, and you’re left with the atmospheric marvel that is Ålesund’ – Darlingzine


Bristol Based, Polish-born singer and songwriter Agata has built a steady following on the British festival circuit over the recent years, having performed at the likes of Larmer Tree, Dot to Dot and Simple Things, alongside support slots for the likes of Mikaela Davis and Tiny Ruins.

With soft yet powerful vocals and an emotionally alternative approach to songwriting, she developed a unique, genre-blending style that compliments her imaginative storytelling. Layers of electric guitars and upright piano, accompanied by cinematic strings and shimmering synthesizers create a powerful yet melancholic environment and a great canvas for the emotional intensity of Agata’s vocal performance.


Rookeries; the progressive folk duo of Finnian Evans and Kieran Glas uses the subtleties of their acoustic guitars to conjure a musical meeting between Middle Europe’s heartland and rooted Americana. Looping, layering and gently moving forward it’s a dreamscape well deserving of your finest attention.
