Front Room Songs Presents…The fast-rising folk-pop duo, Memorial.
Ollie Spalding and Jack Watts had been best friends for years before they ever played music seriously together. They’d both been in various other outfits but until one Halloween when all their friends were partying, they thought to book a rehearsal room and give it a go. The magic between them was instantaneous.
Via the sublime combination of their two voices and the graceful patchwork of sounds they’ve spun around themselves – there are echoes of Sufjan Stevens, Big Thief and Leonard Cohen blowing through some of their arrangements but the sound the pair have minted is entirely their own. Their debut album arrives on April 29th and is out on Real Kind Records (Communion).
