Erland & The Carnival

Erland & The Carnival were another discovery which we simply had to work with from the first listen onwards.

Formed by multi-instrumentalist Simon Tong (The Verve, The Good, The Bad And The Queen), erstwhile Paul McCartney-collaborator David Nock (The Orb, The Fireman) and Orcadian singer Erland Cooper, they mix traditional folk music with Americana, garage and psychedelia, and then steam-roller it with a rollicking fug of analogue Ethiopique keyboards and hypnotic effects to create an engaging, deep and beautiful procession of noise, topped majestically by Orcadian frontman Cooper’s sonorous, vintage voice.

It’s been our upmost pleasure to have worked with Erland and his assorted Carnival across two full length albums, from the eponymous debut through to 2011′s ‘Nightingale’.
