Boo is currently finishing recording for the third of his stripped back album releases ‘Before’ out on Reveal Records, Friday 6 September. This Whitehouse session will showcase these new songs and old favourites.
The new recordings on ‘Before’ are a perfect contrast of mood and theme to the gloriously rich, full band pop sound of 2017’s acclaimed ‘Swimming in Mercury’ album. This new album finds Boo focused on the art of reduction, consumed by fine details and found sound, songs where the fragility and beauty of life are laid bear with a stark emotive honesty.
‘Before’ was recorded in the first weeks of 2019, with supreme Danish multi-instrumentalist Gustaf Ljungren Boo’s only collaborator on the set. Whilst this is an album for the times (that echoes the darkness and confusion in Europe surrounding it’s pre-Brexit conception) Before is also a timely reminder of the power of simplicity, Hewerdine’s lyricism set to a subtle backdrop of vintage instrumentation.
Support: Ben Morgan-Brown
His new E.P. ‘Nameless Gold’, is a live in the studio, no edits, no overdubs, one guitar and one voice affair. Featuring three songs and two instrumentals, Nameless Gold demonstrates Ben’s growing mastery of the acoustic guitar, a new confidence in his singing, and the continued development of his artistic voice – it perfectly encapsulates the intricate, warm and honest nature of his music.
“Beautifully written, beautifully played – the brilliant Ben Morgan-Brown”
Tom Robinson, BBC6 Music
