The Cooling Pearls

The Cooling Pearls

 Oxford, England, GBR

Awash with violin, acoustic guitar, baritone, haunting harmonies, drunken poetry and a whole host of musical trinkets, The Cooling Pearls make original folk that is sung and played with heart, with sadness, with honesty and with warmth. Nods to The Velvet Underground, late Blur and Elliott Smith.


Conjoured up by Aiden Canaday, Oxford folk collective The Cooling Pearls have been active in parts since late 2006, but it seems that only now are they taking themselves seriously. Aided wonderfully by multi-instrumentalists and good friends Alex Pratchett and Sian Williams, the trio wrote and recorded an album in 2010. Encouraged by praise from the local press they have augmented their line up with musicians from other Oxford acts including We Aeronauts and The Mountain Parade.

Their live shows are getting less rare.
