Storm the Palace with Faitala and Hannah Ashcroft

Please note this is an 18+ event

Storm the Palace are an Edinburgh and London based five-piece who combine elements of baroque-pop and traditional folk with menacing melodies and cinematic flare. Citing influences that range from Scott Walker to Cocteau Twins, the line-up includes Reuben Taylor – known also for his work with James Yorkston and Meursault. The band are touring to support the release of their debut album ‘Snow, Stars and Public Transport’, which comes out on May 12th via Seattle label Abandoned Love Records.

FAITALA are a Manchester-based indie group, founded by NZ born songwriter David Faitala. They were invited to play a live session on Marc Riley’s BBC 6 show after he saw the band play locally at one of their very early live shows. From that three song session the infectious pop of their song ‘Plush’ was subsequently picked up and played extensively by fellow DJ’s Tom Robinson on his Music Introducing MIxtape, Gideon Coe and XFM’s John Kennedy.

Hannah Ashcroft is an indie, alt folk musician from North West England, currently based in Manchester. After two years of touring Australia, she returns to the UK with her debut EP. Recorded in Melbourne, The Quiet Kind blends intricate guitar parts and distinctive melodies to explore themes of mythology, humanity and superstition.
