Lonely Disco - The Galleons, Catgod, Nick Edward Harris. | Saturday, 20. June 2020

Your hosts The Galleons bring brilliant and eclectic live music to one of Brighton's finest venues in a unique format. Three great bands play two sets each across the evening, a bit like Jools Holland but with more songs and less boogie woogie piano. For this event we're very happy to welcome back two of our very favourite acts.

Catgod's last three singles have featured on BBC 6 Music with the latest 'Someone Love' being featured as Lauren Lavernes 'Headphones Moment'. Citing influences as diverse as John Martyn, Massive Attack, Nile Rogers and Otis Redding expect to go on a journey that will take you from crystaline folk serenity to bouncing sophisticated soulful pop and a myriad of places in between. The most amazing thing about their sound is the effortless way they combine these elements into a coherent and joyously soulful sound that has rightly been garnering high praise in their short lifetime. I think this band are going to be big.

Nick Edward Harris from London has played with and supported many of the leading lights of the modern alternative folk and indie scene from Mumford and Sons and the Moulettes to Courtney Barnett and Rozi Plain. He is also a member of the excellent Patch and the Giant and has just launched his critically acclaimed third album 'And Now The Night ...'. He is a singer- songwriter whose original and technically impressive guitar playing forms the musical anchor for well-crafted, thoughtful and beautifully sung vocals. Slots at Glastonbury, Green Man, Cambridge Folk Festival, Wilderness and a 'Song of the Day' on BBC 6 music are testament to his growing stature.

The Galleons will soon be launching their new album. Over four years since their last release the band have experienced lineup changes, big life events, built a recording studio, taken some time out and are coming back with something different but that is still unmistakably The Galleons. Indie-Folk-Rock that's direct and melodic and as fond of delicate minimalism as it is of a big dramatic soundscape.
