Live Music Session #8 – Luckless + Holly Redford Jones

OK, I’ll be honest with you, we forgot to write up a piece about this gig beforehand. But, to appease our OCD we need to make sure we post it before the next show as we have started that whole numbering thing and need to keep it going. So on a fab night in May (the 27th to be precise) we presented the wonderful Berlin residing Kiwi Ivy Rossiter aka Luckless.

Ranging from low key anti-folk to blistering riff heavy guitar slinging and from melancholic introspection to outbursts of joy and positivity, Ivy’s music is poised somewhere between the ethereal haze of indie folk and the propulsive drive of alt-rock.. Luckless draws inspiration from 90’s heroes PJ Harvey, Mark Lanegan and Sparklehorse while reaching out to contemporary touchstones The Kills and Warpaint. The music is raw enough to appeal to the old school and compositionally slick and fresh enough to fit right in with modern musical tastes.

In support  is the more folky, but no less compelling Holly Redford Jones an artist based in Oxford with a range of influences from folk, soul and rock music.

It was fabulous. You should have been there.
