the other sun
the Brighton based songstress & multi-instrumentalist's music is understated, thought provoking & thoroughly absorbing - like the perfect cross between joanna newsom & laura marling.
'the other sun' is something to give yourself up to, submerge yourself in & then let yourself drift along on the gentle sway of the vocal, guitar & harp. Her songs are enchanting with harp & guitar parts underpinning sultry vocals. As a solo performer Ellie Ford is captivating, but she also fronts a five-piece band of multi instrumentalists who play a mix of modern & classical instrumentation, including violin, clarinet, electric guitar, keys & drums. Taking influence from a range of genres the band has an edge & variation that cements their uniqueness in the alt-folk world.
