On April 25th, my band Narcissus will be featured at Platform33’s event at The Slaughtered Lamb, Farringdon.
I put this band together during my time studying at the Royal Academy of Music, aiming to combine the things I love the most about pop and jazz: relentless groove and memorable melodies, dark harmonies, odd time signatures and interactive improvisations. We’ve recorded an EP, and shot several videos (take a look at the first video we shot back in August 2012). Since then we’ve played at The Vortex, Sela Bar in Leeds and Under The Bridge in Chelsea.
I’m really excited to have Josh Arcoleo on board too, who did some recording with Narcissus a while back at RAM. Our music is high in intensity, and requires a sax player with a big sound and a strong voice. In rehearsal, Josh’s playing and musical attitude has added so much to the group. We can’t wait to get on stage!
Platform33 always brings in a reliable and dedicated audience, a cross-section of musical tastes and a common sense of curiosity and respect for the artists. The venue is a great room with a good sound system and stage, and it’s look and vibe will be a perfect setting for another live video. For a taster of the gig, have a listen and watch videos at OUR WEBSITE.
