Feeling a bit camera shy


‘I’ll say it again – they’re brilliant’
Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 6 Music.

‘I hope we get to play together again’
Chaz Jankel, The Blockheads

Fresh from supporting industry giants such as From The Jam and The Blockheads, The Bottle Brunettes have created an industry buzz as a result of a handful of showcase gigs with their catchy songs of mirth, melancholy, sin and supermarkets.

Their aim has been to create classic, well-crafted pop songs: full of nuances and observations allied to their country’s rich musical and artistic traditions, but based enough in common human experience and culture to reach out and resonate beyond the geography. They write pop music with the same ethos that contemporaries such as Cherry Ghost, The Bees, Elbow or The Shins write pop music – meticulously moulded, unmistakeably catchy and built to last. This commitment to songwriting has been reaping rewards with the support slot offers, a nomination for the London Songwriter of the Year Award and with Tom Robinson championing them on national radio.

They were brought together by Poncho, whose musical wordsmithery in a previous group was hailed by GQ Contributing Editor Kevin Braddock as part of a ‘Nouveau Pop Conceptuel’ along with the likes of British Seapower and Architecture In Helsinki. Still Poncho wanted to reach further heights so set out to assemble a dream line-up of the finest musicians he could find. He succeeded. The band members have a history of handling television and festival appearances with panache and have risen to this new musical challenge with big grins and genuine commitment.

They’ve already been working on demos with EMI producer/engineer Mark Aubrey (Thom Yorke, Madness, Ray Davies) in Bowie/T-Rex producer Tony Visconti’s historic former studio in Soho.

People keep telling The Bottle Brunettes that they can’t get their songs out of their heads – which is precisely the plan.
