Studio Electrophonique ‘Buxton Palace Hotel’ 10"
Pre-order due 27th September.
Violette Records is the label formed as a platform for Michael Head (Shack/The Pale Fountains) and has since developed into a cultural hub for music, literature and the arts.
Bright eyed, tousle-headed and with a look halfway between penitence and innocence, James Leesley (aka Studio Electrophonique) conjures a sound akin to the dream where Bill Ryder-Jones fronts The Velvet Underground with echoes of Cherry Ghost drifing in there for good measure. Cinematic, melodic, warm - efficient in arrangement yet intricate in detail.
This is beautiful. Very reminiscent of Alex Turner’s songs for ‘Submarine’ (IE: THE BEST THING HE EVER DID!) – Pete Paphides
On hearing the track 'Jayne' Richard Hawley was so enamoured that he invited Studio Electrophonique to open for his band in London and Holmfirth in May 2019.
