Neverest Songs, the project of Margate musical maestro Luke Twyman, is set to play Wales’ Green Man Festival this summer.
Beginning work in a home studio back in 2005, Twyman’s work culminated in the gathering of a selection of some 24 tracks which were later recorded in Kent and over in New York City between 2008 and 2009. Whittled down to the thirteen that followed to comprise his debut LP Small Voyages in 2010, the release won him comparisons to the likes of Peter Broderick and Michael Nyman for the subtly arranged orchestral compositions which balanced the chamber pop of his lyrical songs. A delicately intricate debut it benefits the patient listener, slowly revealing its depth of sense and substance listen after listen.
2011 has marked the start of a busy year for Luke, having recently recorded a score for New York based independent film All That Glitters.
Also, there is a pending release date for the upcoming double A-side single Paper Trumpers/Softly, Quite Softly, Quite Softly, the latter of which features brass accompaniment from Arctic Circle’s Penguins With Brass and was recorded in the glorious Union Chapel, London.
With an appearance in August at the acclaimed Green Man Festival, in a line-up featuring Iron and Wine, Fleet Foxes and The Leisure Society, we’re sure you’ll hear more from Neverest Songs over the upcoming months.
