Beneath The Tracks Vol. II is the second night hosted by London Contemporary Voices at Omeara following a sellout show in May. An evening of intimate sets from emerging artists in the atmospheric space beneath the railway arches. Hosted by London Contemporary Voices, featuring special guest Hunrosa (Cinematic Orchestra).
London's leading alternative choir will be joined by electronic music producer Hunrosa, marrying heavy bass, lush strings and soaring vocals. Sets from Hrím, Elimarit and Autumn Music will complete the lineup.
The choir will also perform immersive surround-sound sets to a blindfolded audience in this shabby atmospheric space beneath the railway arches.
Doors: 7pm Starts: 7:30pm Ends: 10:30pm
Sam Vicary from Cinematic Orchestra plays on the juxtaposition of modern electronic music and the beauty of acoustic instruments whilst maintaining a focus on songwriting and pure music. There features homages to ambient/electronic producers, late 60’s psychedelic jazz artists and romantic classical music.
Jon Hopkins' collaborator Cherif Hashizume joins Icelandic folk vocalist Ösp Eldjarn and LCV's founder Anil Sebastian. Electronic beats fuse with Indian-tinged guitar and haunting Icelandic vocals, creating epic soundscapes likened to Sigur Rós, Björk and Mogwai.
Norwegian jazz vocalist Marit Røkeberg occupies the space between jazz and folk, performing both unaccompanied and with classical guitar. Think Eva Cassidy meets Susanne Sundfor and Kings Of Convenience.
Layered vocals and ambient beats. Singer-songwriter Rosi Croom floats her unique form of poetic storytelling over a lush bed of beats and synths, with nods to Imogen Heap, Portishead and James Blake.
