India Electric Co – New Video, New Album & Tour Dates

India Electric Co have released a new video of the opening track of their new album ‘Seven Sisters’

“The Gulley”
Fuses words from William Mee’s 19th century poem Alice Gray with the 3/2 hornpipe Rusty Gulley (featured in Henry Atkinson’s 1694 manuscript – one of the earliest surviving fiddle manuscripts).

The ever inventive masters of fusion India Electric Company present the second in an EP trilogy contrasting country and city themes – their ‘folkiest’ release to date.

Seven Sisters, produced with assistance from EFDSS (English Folk Dance and Song Society) Creative Bursary scheme, fuses folk backdrops with unique arrangements using everything from fiddle to prepared piano and sub bass accordion.

The spellbinding six-track release uses traditional instruments and tunes in reimagined ways and is the latest calling card of the Devon-born, London-based duo comprising stand-out vocalist Cole Stacey and superb multi-instrumentalist Joseph O’Keefe.

Seven Sisters is a glorious melting pot – exploring traditional music from England and Scotland from Northumbrian jigs to Scottish ballads – tunes and words spanning three centuries. Recorded in the National Trust’s Sutton House in Hackney (a 16th century merchant’s house and one of the oldest buildings in London’s East End) with vocals recorded in an empty Devonshire home this is newly minted traditional music with a deep rooted country imprint.

Released on Friday, November 17 on the Shoelay record label, Seven Sisters will be distributed by Proper Music.

**A Seven Sisters album launch gig will take place at EFDSS’s Cecil Sharp House, London on Wednesday, December 13, 7.30pm www.cecilsharphouse.org/component/content/article/21-shared/shared-events/4499-india-electric-co
