Yorkshire experimental/ drone
time:20:00pm
price: Headfirst Tickets

Information:

With roots stemming from England’s post-Industrial underground, the past 15 years have seen the north explode into a beautiful expanse of grassroots transcendentalism, from the tantric droners of West Yorkshire to the more recently thriving Manchester improvisational scene. The Slowest Lift features key players Sophie Cooper and Julian Bradley.

Sophie Cooper is a West Yorkshire based musician who enjoys experimenting with the conventions of song writing. Her main instruments are trombone, guitar and vocals and the music made could be described as psychedelic, drone or noise music. The songs have a dreamlike quality, with sounds and vocals drifting in and out of clarity.

Cooper performs regularly throughout the UK and Ireland. She is also the founder of Todmorden’s psyche and drone event ‘Tor Festival’ and writes for Radio Free Midwich, an experimental music blog.

Julian Bradley has played in Leeds' long-running ecstatic free drone troupe Vibracathedral Orchestra for many years, alongside numerous other musical projects.

These first Slowest Lift dates coincide with the release of their debut album, released on VHF records, home to Flying Saucer Attack, Richard Youngs, Astral Social Club and many more.

Bristol based Tara Clerkin’s music combines elements of psychedelia, country and folk songwriting with a lo-fi palette of found sounds and field recordings.

Also Bristol's favourite minimal guitar, xylophone and drum trio, Motes.
