new music: Meadowlark

Today, I bring you some new music from Bristol based duo Meadowlark. While putting together a piece for this year’s Tramlines festival, these guys instantly caught my eye with their moody photography and after checking them out on Soundcloud, I knew that I had to feature them on here as their alternative pop with a gloomy, melancholy edge is just absolutely wonderful.

Above is their latest track ‘Eyes Wide’ which is a solemn and haunting number from the start with tinkling piano keys and subtle, almost suffocated beats. The atmospherics that run throughout the background of this track are beautiful backing up the harmonious vocals of McGill perfectly. It is a spectacular track littered with mini upbeat moments full of quick beats and infectious melodies which make for a nice break from the fragility of the rest of this one. A really perfect song that I know I will have on repeat a hell of a lot.

The pair, Kate McGill and Daniel Broadley, released their second EP ‘Dual’ back in March and since then it has caught the attention of the likes of XFM, 6Music, Huw Stephens and even Burberry. Quite an impressive feat for a band that have only released two EP’s to date but that is what you get when the music you are releasing is of such good quality.

In terms of live dates, they have recently just played Sheffield for Tramlines festival and have two dates lined up for October at The Lexington in London on 6th and on the 7th they will be in their hometown of Bristol at The Louisiana. Keep an eye on the live dates page of their website for news though.
