Keeley Forsyth - Limbs
Published 17 November, 2021 by DM

Keeley Forsyth returns with sweeping new single ‘Bring Me Water’, with new album Limbs to follow on February 25th. It is accompanied by a beautiful monochrome video directed by Ross Downes and featuring dancer and choreographer Calvin Richardson of the Royal Ballet.

“The song picks up where ‘Start Again’, the final track on Debris, left off,” Forsyth explains. “It comes from a similar place, approached at a different angle, with the line ‘let me begin again’ central to that. It plots a journey from a place of darkness, but marks the point at which we choose to grow. Bring me water. Give me light. These are the basic things required to start that process.”

Forsyth’s 2020 debut album found an elemental voice ringing out from beneath the rubble. Understated but devastating, Debris' success led to a transformation as the songs were brought to the stage. An innate performer, Forsyth found herself channelling something she hadn’t yet fully come to understand, and it was here that the voice on Debris began to probe outwards and discover a physical form. It’s a form that fully takes shape on her second album Limbs.

Limbs is available to pre-order now on CD, digital, limited edition white vinyl LP and black vinyl LP. In addition, the oxblood vinyl Dinked Edition with alternate sleeve and photobook is available to pre-order from select UK independent record shops. The album will be released worldwide digitally on February 25th, with CDs and LPs in shops in the UK and Europe on the same day. The physical release date for the rest of the world is April 29th.

Forsyth has a short run of UK dates in the spring, which culminates with her biggest show yet at The Barbican’s Milton Court venue on March 11th.

Fri March 4 - Glad Café, Glasgow
Sat March 5 - Hallé St Michaels, Manchester
Sun March 6 - Brudenell Social Club, Leeds
Thu March 10 - Strange Brew, Bristol
Fri March 11 - Milton Court, London

Snapped Ankles - Shifting Basslines of the Cornucopian (Savage Gary Remix)
Published 13 October, 2021 by DM

Snapped Ankles’ ode to the Elon Musks and Jeff Bezos of this world has been given the Savage Gary treatment. Speedy Wunderground’s Dan Carey continues his fine line in filthy remixes, putting his skills to good use on the latest woodland banger to be taken from Forest Of Your Problems.

“Dan Carey, aka Savage Gary, has drunk from the horn of plenty and savaged our Shifting Basslines to create a collage with more bleeps and pulses than the dry refill aisle in Holland & Barrett,” say Snapped Ankles.

The woodwose are hitting the road today for a UK tour of famous trees and pop concerts, including their biggest headline show to date at Camden’s iconic Roundhouse for Snappoween, with a supporting cast of Stealing Sheep and Mermaid Chunky.
