AUGUST EP Launch : Got Those Strings

— Exchange
AUGUST is truly a breath of fresh air and one to watch in 2021!
price: Tickets Below


Having gained a lot of attention as an established singer-songwriter, some of you may know AUGUST as the Creative Director and Founder of Bristol based vocal collective ‘Bass Choir’.

This year ever-evolving alternative soulstress AUGUST brings us closer to home through her project ‘Got Those Strings’. A lyrically potent and electronically fragmented body of work, AUGUST has personally expressed ‘Got Those Strings’ to be a direct commentary on “non-conformity and a refusal to accept the boundaries and stereotypes that are inflicted upon us daily”.

Featuring production from The 7 Arrows (aka Typesun), the 4-track EP is preceded by lead single ‘Got Those Strings’, which has garnered immediate attention from BBC Music Introducing and BCFM Radio, with radio support from Amazing Radio both within the UK and US.

A futuristic yet intelligent minimalistic soul-leaning ode, integrating melodic bass undertones and an electronic approach with the naked balladry of the piano. AUGUST focuses her awe-inspiring vocal talents on a prominent use of thick atmospheric harmonies laced with haunting Soul R’n'B lead vocals, funnelling buckets of sparseness and unexpected musicality into the ears of the listener.

A sound described as ‘futuristic alternative soul’, listening and visual styles range from Aaliyah, MJ Cole, Portico Quartet and Kate Bush through to having fans that include Ashley Henry, Jenna G, Liam Bailey, Nomine and Roni Size.

The next chapter will see the forthcoming EP, an alternative soul-leaning project, set for an Autumn release. The project’s new single off the EP “You Raise Me” is out now, as are the striking accompanying visuals.

Come early - you don’t want to miss this intimate gig…
