BETH JEANS HOUGHTON & THE HOOVES OF DESTINY

 

“Yours Truly, Cellophane Nose” introduces one of the most self-assured new artists of the year, a pop polymath whose blend of psychedelia, glam rock and chain gang folk is quite unlike anything else you’re likely to hear in 2012. Like her utterly unique stage outfits, it’s made from disparate individual elements that wouldn’t work on paper, but sing out like a holy choir in the execution.

 

Adding muscle to Beth’s far-ranging vocals are her band The Hooves Of Destiny. Comprising Dav Shiel (drums, vocals samples) Rory Gibson (bass, vocals), Ed Blazey (guitar, trumpet, vocals) and Findlay Macaskill (violin, vocals), they’re a crack unit recruited from Beth’s native North East.

 

Songs about boys and dreams have never sounded so forceful and proud as these, and there’s plenty more to unpick in Beth’s hugely inventive lyrics. Having recorded the album without a record deal to ensure complete creative control, it will be released on Mute, the label described by Houghton as “The one that still believed in my record after everyone else had gone to the pub.” Now ready for release, Beth sees the album as “an animal I'm preparing to ride. Grooming it, feeding it, braiding its hair, and I feel that Ben has built me a saddle that is both practical and comfortable to use. And because of this I feel confident in its release.”

 

Tickets for this show are priced at £10 and go on sale at 9am on Friday 20th April from the following links: WeGotTickets / TicketWeb / SeeTickets
