A fiercely inventive & unique piece of work from this 18 year old genius singer/songwriter old from oldham, near manchester.

‘Bowler Hat Soup’ will appeal to fans of Elephant 6 era modern psychedelia, prog & classic alt pop, sounding like a sometimes cacophonous, sometimes harmonious meeting between rufus wainwright, sufjan stevens, of montreal, mothers of invention & deerhoof. he plays 22 instruments on his debut album, including a radiator! it all makes for one of the most refreshing, thrilling & genuinely intriguing records we've heard in a long time. "majestic, freakishly savant-ish...a Joanna Newsom-like way with words & intonation rendered in the wiry voice of a manic teenage boy. There's so much raw, unadulterated delight here" - pitchfork.
