As a massive fan of the Levellers, it took me all of 2 seconds to fall into Gentle Persons Club. I mean, even their name has an instantly amiable twee sensibility which sits around the bands ethereal, cacophonously uplifting sound. Weight in the Water is nothing but experimental. I’m pretty sure I witnessed someone playing the ukulele with twigs in the music video. I’m not quite sure how any track is going to quite follow on from Weight in the Water. The band have taken that bewitching traditional Folk Rock sound and slapped a contemporarily stunning new face upon it.
Gentle Persons Club create an upliftingly magnetic sound that’s drenched in pure acoustic harmony. If there’s anyone I’d ever want to sit around a campfire with it’s definitely Gentle Persons Club.
Weight of Water is the first single release from their debut EP which is due to be released on April 22nd, 2018.
You can check out the slightly bohemian official music video to Weight in the Water on YouTube.
Don’t forget to tell Gentle Persons Club how fabulous they are & give them a follow on Facebook
