Jemma Freeman & The Cosmic something is the latest project from the former Landshapes songwriter and guitarist, and Jemma builds on their reputation for producing excellent, dreamy, psychedelic rock. On Tuesday 11th February they arrive at Base Camp in Middlesbrough, supported by wonky Sheffield noise pop trio Duck, to showcase the best of their productions from a successful 2019.

Having self-released Helen Is A Reptile in 2019, the track soon found a home on BBC Radio 6Music, with hosts and listeners alike embracing the punchy, raucous guitar riff and thought provoking lyrics. Find A Place was next to arrive, which was an altogether more ambitious production that saw two completely different versions of the track being mixed into mono. One version was panned left and the other panned right, with the result being an ethereal, atmospheric track that completely surrounds the listener. Hot on its heels was the band’s excellent album Oh Really, What’s That Then, a feature length record produced over the course of a year at the Marketstall recording studio in London which gave the band time to explore a multitude of genres, making their forthcoming show a must for fans of psych, glam, alt. rock and empowering voices.
