Baskery are three sisters from Sweden, the sound is all about turning music on its head, blending the straight forwardness of punk with the subtlety of roots and Americana
Baskery will be touring their latest release “LITTLE WILD LIFE” in the UK in the Autumn of 2014.
No matter where they go in the world, people tell the sisters that they’ve never heard or seen anything like it, that they have a completely unique sound and perform with what seems to be an inexhaustible energy. That’s Baskery’s aim, to never stop surprising. Baskery is a band built on what three people can do together. The music is not to be confused with country or bluegrass just because they play a double bass, a six string banjo and acoustic guitar.
The three sisters can’t recall when or why they started playing, the music’s always just been there. “Performing live has become the most natural thing to us”. That’s where the high energy level on stage hails from, a pure and reckless love to the art of performing music.
“Little Wild Fire is loaded with trenchant vitality” – 4/5 stars, Gareth Hayes, R2
“A jewel of an album, it grows and grows with each listen as the voices and the arrangements bury themselves as ear worms. ” – Keith Hargreaves, Americana UK
“Little Wild Life … is alive, exciting, melodic”. 5/5 – Paul Riley, Country Music People
“Frenetically energetic…a distinctively individual band sound primed to hone in on the mainstream” – MOJO (Colin Irwin)
