We have a video premiere to share with you from singer/songwriter Matthew Lowe (Keston Cobblers’ Club) and Daniel Trenholme (The Lost Cavalry) from their new project Stables. Watch the video above for their new single Meet You (out 22 July) in which we follow the footsteps of two separate journeys but will they meet?
The Alt-Folk duo have been playing together from their days at school; after forming the successful folk-pop band Keston Cobblers Club, with Daniel moving onto architecture whilst drumming for The Lost Cavalry and Matthew continuing to write and perform with The Cobblers and composing for film. The two have finally decided to pair up and embark on a new musical journey.
Matthew wrote the album ‘Beyond Brushes‘ at the end of 2015 :
With a little time off from touring, I knew I wanted to get my teeth stuck into a musical side project, going back to basics: myself, a guitar and a friend to play and harmonise with. Daniel was that friend, we got together, played through the tracks and recorded them in the month of January ’16 in my home studio. It all just came together, as if it’d been going for years Stables was formed and I knew we’d created something special, I’ve been struck by the reception Stables has already gained from just a few months being public.
The duo put an emphasis on energy when playing live, with multiple instruments and filling the sound of a full band. Stables is a duo, but with the inclusion of notable musicians at shows and addition of a full orchestra in many recordings, the range of sound can vary hugely.
I always wanted to create a simple sound, that could then be taken further when needed. From a small folk club, to a large festival stage, Stables is for 2 people who love to compose and perform, but it’s not exclusive. Our goal is to fit in wherever we may play and by doing so, we embrace the idea of change from set to set, track to track with the underlining principle that we enjoy ourselves and the audience enjoy themselves. It’s simple and that keeps it fun.
With their début Album ‘Beyond Brushes‘ being released by Circashaw Records on August 19th, Stables have hit the ground running; performing exclusive summer sets at the Festivals Camp Wildfire (main stage) and Leefest and embarking on their first UK co-headline tour (The Fable Tour) in August with Fitz around the album release London (album launch at The Lexington), Manchester, Bristol, Birmingham and Brighton (see dates below).
