Local acts By Toutatis and Dressed Like Wolves are celebrating the release of their new split single with a launch party at the newly opened Green Room, in the Green Dragon Studio, on Saturday 24 March.
There are two versions of the CD available; By Toutatis release features tracks Dead Men's Cues, Felon's Song (Adieu Adieu) and Dressed Like Wolves song Seasons. Dressed Like Wolves version features their own tracks Warmth, Seasons, Monuments and from By Toutatis Dead Men's Cues and Felons Song (Adieu Adieu).
By Toutatis are relatively new to the scene, although made up of former Idiot Savant members; they are self-proclaimed ‘baroque history-rock racketeers’ who are based in various towns, cities and villages along the Northeast coast but generally gravitating around Saltburn-by-the Sea.
Comprising singer Daniel Cochran; violinist Robbie Major; guitarist/pianist Ben Hopkinson and drummer Francois B. Muriel, the group recently released their debut EP Three More Nights of the Rough Musick. Their music sounds somewhat like a folkier version of The National and as well as being influenced by Francois’ beloved Northumbrian folk.
"...what a joy it is. It feels soaked in that elusive quantity which you’d probably call “authenticity”’; Northumbrian folk by way of addled shanties and unexpected shifts of direction..." The Crack Magazine
3-piece Dressed By Wolves create haunting lo-fi sounds that evoke Bright Eyes and the Moldy Peaches. Formed in 2009 by lead singer and guitarist Rick Dobbing, he teamed up with multi instrumentalist’s Matt and Daniel and they have since released 2 LP’s, I Could Walk on Water, But I’d Rather Be Part of the Sea in 2010 and Sometimes You’ve Got to Stop Caving and Melt in 2011.
Hand made copies of the single will be available for purchase on the night.
Tickets are £4 in advance or £6 on the door and are available at www.georgiantheatre.co.uk.
