Reliably informed

May Days in Barcelona is the work of multi-instrumentalist Simon Clowes who started performing live in 2015 at a number of performance art events in Newcastle. Live, Simon uses up to 4 loop pedals simultaneously, to create a melodic wall of sound, with violins weaving over fuzzy shoegaze guitars and analogue synths, drawing on elements of Post-Rock, Minimalism and Baroque Pop. Recently, he has been meticulously crafting a world of achingly beautiful music in the form of his latest EP, Kestrel Variations, a release that connects five interlinking sections bringing to mind flight, seasons and the passing of time. We’re delighted that Simon has given us an exclusive listen of the EP ahead of its release on 6th December via Plastic Palace.
