Award for loveliest, fluffiest, crumbliest, flakiest (That’s enough – Ed) gig of the week goes to this EP launch event. Ivan Moult inspires yelping and general perspiration from female students through his guitar playing in Cardiff’s pop gems The School; this here evening however will see his acoustic side bust out (gently). Stand by for fine, unshowy and quietly beautiful folk music. Support comes from Elephant And Soldier, whose bedroom-based scrapbooks will make for intriguing live scenes, and The Sleepiest Trekker, who for all I know cover Biohazard songs on human bone keyboards while gargling fake blood. Although bear in mind they are called The Sleepiest Trekker.
Bubblewrap Collective presents:
IVAN MOULT EP Launch
ELEPHANT AND SOLDIER
THE SLEEPIEST TREKKER
Tuesday 6th July
Plus a lucky dip!
Bubblewrap Records are proud to present the debut EP from Cardiff-based singer songwriter IVAN MOULT.
Ivan has made quite an impression on live music fans in his adopted city in recent months, gaining attention from BBC Radio Wales DJs and Radio 6 new music champion Tom Robinson along the way.
The Mine Canary EP captures the world weary ache that flows through Ivan’s songs, delivered with a trademark vocal tenderness that demonstrates an intriguing maturity and intelligence of a young man finding his own way in the world. The 5 tracks showcase a mouth watering talent, at home in gentle textures and thought provoking lyrics.
