Based on folklore but full of modern kick, Keston Cobblers Club’s music is catchy, contemporary pop-folk. Over the last few years, the band have been steadily building a name for themselves and winning over an army of loyal fans. Since forming in 2009, they’ve played some of the UK’s biggest festivals, sold out their own headline tours, and been invited to perform live on BBC Radio by the likes of Dermot O’Leary, Steve Lamacq and Bob Harris. They’ve provided the music for advertising campaigns for Burberry and Mornflake, created all the music for stand-up Ross Noble’s ‘Sit Down Tour’ film, and can often be heard on TV shows from ‘Hairy Bikers’ to ‘Countryfile’.
Their most recent album, ‘Wildfire’, showcases the infectious spirit that’s already won them a legion of fans. It builds on the band’s bedrock of urgent anthems, thumped drums, sweet strums and tuba – combining these elements with 90s synth hooks, huge orchestral waves and choral arrangements which the band describe as “a blanket of voices.” The album received praise on its release from The Guardian, Financial Times and Independent among others, while MOJO Magazine gave the album a glowing 4 star review, and have tipped the band for great success.
