“pristinely crafted” – Earmilk
“A wonderful blur of emotive songcraft and supple execution” – Clash
Meadowlark have announced details of a brand new EP, ‘Paraffin’, for release on 22nd April via
‘Paraffin’ is the follow up to Meadowlark’s 2015 released ‘Dual’ EP which was produced by Ant West of Oh Wonder and has now amassed over 4 million Spotify streams. Lead single ‘Eyes Wide’ achieved a coveted slot on Radio 1’s BBC Introducing Playlist, adding to 6 Music and Radio X support the band have already received.
Meadowlark – Kate McGill (vocals, keys) and Daniel Broadley (guitar, synths) – describe ‘Paraffin’ as “an evolution”. Written on piano, the songs were then crafted into grand arrangements – the captivating pop melodies of Kate’s crystalline vocals accompanied by electronic flourishes combine to form a rich, heady atmosphere. Gradually building the tracks from simple melodies into dense sonic structures was an experimental process through which Meadowlark have firmly found their creative voice. The EP offers an exciting glimpse into what this duo are capable of.
Having already sold out numerous London shows and played festivals including Glastonbury,
Meadowlark will be touring extensively in 2016.
