New track by The Artisans, streaming today via Soundcloud, alongside “Appleby Fair”.
Jangly, catchy and shimmery guitar music mixed up with a mass of contradictions, this is The Artisans – creators of fine cheese, cakes and indiepop. Tasty – if you like your music as bitter as it is sweet. With troubled tales of British Boxing
Greats, exhibitionists, failed relationships and going off the rails…
The Artisans are Glenn, Nick, Karen and Kevin, who found each other somewhere between the thick smog of Hartlepool and the bright lights of Newcastle, and through their shared love of C86, 60s and 80s bands.
Their debut single and video (featuring two former world boxing champions) created quite a stir in the indiepop world, and their debut album was released to critical acclaim in April 2019.
