Music Blackheart Wednesday 21 May7.30pm

In just four years, since their song Unlike Water was used on the Moben Kitchens TV commercial British multi-instrumentalist duo Blackheart have recorded three albums, enjoyed airplay in nearly every country in the world and played successful tours of UK, Ireland, Germany, the Netherlands plus two headline tours of Australia and New Zealand.

Their music and unique sound shun categorisation, combining acoustic instruments of Rick Pilkington, and the voice of Chrissy Mostyn with ancient synthesisers, effects, atmospherics and electronica to create a new brand of avant-garde ethereal folk. Their highly personal, haunting music is flavoured with piercing observations and penetrating lyrics which, as Australia’s Western Star commented, “Take their audiences from uplifting to heartbreaking in a single song.”

Blackheart’s sonically and emotionally uninhibited third album ‘Songs From A Satellite’ entered the Amazon chart at No.52 three days after release in November 2013 and one month later was awarded second place Album Of The Year in the US Indie Music Awards.

Music critic James Douglas said “Blackheart are firmly based in that curiously eccentric British tradition that spawned the Strawbs and the earliest incarnation of Pink Floyd, their referencing includes everything that’s great in rock, from the great English folk bands to the all-pervasive influence of The Velvet Underground, all washed with the purity of Travis.”

“Stunningly beautiful. Blackheart are on the fringe of true greatness” Kensington & Chelsea Today

“Fantastically creative” Antonia Brickell, BBC Cambridge
