The Musgraves [+]

Free Before 9pm, £4 Thereafter

With a ‘Q The Music Track of the Day’ in the bag and a BBC 6Music Record of the Week for the infectious ‘So Sofia’, further airplay on BBC Radio 2 and Q Radio plus growing support from regional radio stations across the UK, Midlands based roots-pop four piece The Musgraves established themselves as ‘ones to watch’ via their critically acclaimed debut EP, ‘Lost In Familiarity’.

British Telecom (BT) adopted the band in 2011 using an instrumental of their epic ballad ‘Discover Me’ as the bed for the ‘Adam and Jane’ TV wedding campaign. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ze6z9bY5790

The debut single, ‘Last Of Me’, has already been championed by Graham Norton on his BBC Radio 2 show. The track explores the imminent end of a long-term relationship – the loss of love, friendship and, ultimately, identity – but, in true Musgraves style, it sits on a feel-good pop arrangement brimming with 50s and 60s pop/soul influences.

“…Beautifully crafted Pop-Folk songs that capture a tremendous sense of effortless energy and emotion showing a song writing ability well beyond their years and far above that of you’re average band. Undoubtedly they have potential to go far…”

“…The freshness and enthusiasm of these musicians has been coupled with mature song writing and a polished production sound rarely found on a debut independent release. The result is folk-infused alt-pop at its best…”
