Pet Deaths

Exquisite, melancholic, celestial folk from the London-based musical duo whose debut album, To the Top of the Hill and Roll, was released in August 2019.

On the nine-track album, Graeme Martin and Liam Karima blend ethereal concepts with poetic metre and hypnotic melodies, layered over an exploration of natural sound.

The album was recorded at Radiohead’s Oxfordshire base, Courtyard Studios, after early demos made their way into the hands of producer Ian Davenport (Slowdive, Gaz Coombes).

Following the album release, Pet Deaths’ breed of enchanting, melancholic folk has gathered high praise from critics and a sold-out London headline show at The Lexington.

Adding to the intrigue of their intense performances, the pair’s live shows often feature special guests, collaborators and musicians.

Support comes from Wild Adoration.

Wild Adoration’s music is influenced by an amalgam of jazz, ambient, techno and electronica. She is often compared to Laurie Anderson, FKA Twigs, Andy Stott, HTRK and Tricky.

Whilst her EP1 (2018) was about society's struggles and human behaviour, her self-released EP2 is turned towards self-love, love, acceptance and strength – presenting her evolution into experimental, trip-hop and ambient vibes.

Acoustic songcraft is matched to an otherworldly delivery
Strikes a stunning balance between intensity and fragility
