KICK THE PLUG JUNE 2nd FRÁNÇOIS & THE ATLAS MOUNTAINS + ADELAIDE’S CAPE + KLAUS

Kick the Plug returns once again to Clerkenwell’s Wilmington Arms. This time around we present Fránçois & The Atlas Mountains, Adelaide’s Cape and Klaus.

Expect musical brilliance, culinary treats and badges aplenty.

Fránçois & The Atlas Mountains
http://www.myspace.com/francoisinbristol
François Marry is a multi-talented songwriter, musician, animator and artist, hailing from the west coast of France. At the age of 19, François travelled over to the UK, and quickly became involved in the Bristol scene, playing a number garnering notable support slots (including Juana Molina, Gravenhurst, Patrick Wolf, Panda Bear, Electrelane) and assembling an ever-changing band of players called ʻThe Atlas Mountainsʼ – whose cast has included Rachael Dadd (Angelʼs Egg), and Rozi Plain – and has performed around the globe, as well as being a touring member of Scottish indie-pop starlets Camera Obscura (4AD), on trumpet and percussion.
Françoisʼ previous releases often featured casio-beats, and lo-fi electronics – but new album Plaine Inondable marks a departure from that style. piano chords swell, electric guitars gently shimmer, and Françoisʼ soft croon floats throughout – his bilingual songs melding the bitter-sweet yearning of Leonard Cohen with the melodic playfulness of Serge Gainsbourg and Françoise Hardy. The result is a confident and unique blend of styles, that dreamily infuse with one another; a semi-conscious state, which is further reflected in the fluctuation between French and English lyrics.

Adelaide’s Cape
http://www.myspace.com/adelaidescape
Adelaide’s Cape is the creative outlet of musician and songwriter Sam Taylor, with a helping hand from his musical mates. So far he has been lucky enough to tour with Alessi’s Ark and Rachael Dadd, and has shared stages with Pete Roe, First Aid Kit, the Wilkommen Collective and Polly & The Billet Doux amongst others. He has also toured the UK on his lonesome, and will be off on tour with The Miserable Rich at the beginning of June.

Klaus

Meet Brighton based singer songwriter KLAUS, (formerly referred to as Klaus Says Buy The Record). Klaus is the recognized winner of the Red Stripe Music Award 2008, and is also known for his achievements in reaching the final stages of Channel 4’s ‘Orange Unsigned Act’ last spring. Since last summer, Klaus has toured and performed with the likes of Get Cape Wear Cape Fly, Jo Lean And The Jing Jang Jong, Dirty Pretty Things, and Youth Movies. He has also performed at some of the UK’s major festivals including The Great Escape, Lovebox and Offset. In August 2009 Klaus signed to Sheffield based indie label Small Town Records, his debut release “Lights Out” was recorded last summer and was released September 21st 2009. Klaus’ debut EP received critical acclaim and is available nationwide now. In February of this year, Klaus recorded his first single ‘Belly Of The Sea’ which is released nationwide May 24th.
