BANFI+ BRYDE + DANIEL JOHN MARSDEN

London three-piece Banfi announce details of their latest single ‘June’, available from August 18th via Communion Records.

‘June’ is the latest single, which arrives swiftly on the heels of the hypnotic ‘She Comes Home’. The London band showcase the more energetic and rhythmic side of their compulsively danceable brand of guitar-pop, a smartly unforgettable song that drills itself into your brain with an undeniable chorus and whip-smart lyrics.

Banfi have spent the last two years winning over fans on the road, adeptly backed with ‘Happy When You Go’ and ‘Rosedale House’, their genre-melding guitar-inflected singles that have pricked ears and set tongues wagging across the blogosphere. At the top of this year, their four-date monthly residency at The Old Blue Last was swiftly followed up by a turn supporting Bear’s Den on their UK and European tour, leading into a summer festival run that took in the likes of Bushstock, Truck, Dot To Dot, Boardmasters and a career highlight set at Citadel.

Plus support from BRYDE

London artist Bryde releases EP2, a follow up to her debut EP1, which includes the huge rabble stomper ‘Honey’ and second single ‘Wouldn’t That Make You Feel Good?’ which channels an intimate woosy blues dynamic with an injection of towering guitar episode bearing the indelible stamp of Bill Ryder-Jones. Such dynamism shows Bryde pushing boundaries emphatically, exploring a grittiness now becoming synonymous with her songwriting.

Earning comparisons to Sharon Van EttenPJ HarveyJeff Buckley and London Grammar, her powerful vocals, sharp, evocative lyricism and searing guitar tones have won plaudits from the likes of NYLONThe 405 and The Line Of Best Fit, with the latter declaring Bryde’s heady concoction as “tearjerk folk-pop”.
