Ebullient, heartfelt alt-folk duo'
'A cross between The Tallest Man on Earth, early Bon Iver and The Lumineers'
From Matthew Lowe (Keston Cobblers Club) and Daniel Trenholme, comes the new alt-folk duo Stables.
Stables was formed at the end of 2015. Matthew was working on a new project idea at the time and, after playing through what was to become their first single, 'Steam', at 5 am, the duo was born, and quickly went public four months later.
Just a month after the release Matthew and Daniel embarked on their first UK headline tour, followed by a small French headline. Stables put emphasis on 'energy' when playing live; switching instruments and producing the sound of a full band, with big harmonies and varied styles. Matthew says; 'I always wanted to create a simple sound that could then be taken further when needed, from a small folk club, to a large festival stage'. Stables have gone on to tour the UK further, performing at major festivals including Glastonbury Festival, and now have a full European headline tour announced for Autumn 2017.
Stables' second album, 'Reverie', has been announced for release at the end of February 2018, and has been tipped to surpass their debut. 'We're incredibly proud of this record and can't wait for people to hear it'. Matthew calls it an 'almost break up album' that he wrote whilst in a 'period of relationship unrest, which resolved during the process'. 'This is the album we always wanted to release when we first imagined Stables. We love our debut, but this feels like the sound we always set out to produce'.
