Snapped Ankles - Rechargeable (The Utopia Strong Remix)
Published 10 October 2019 by DM

As the Snapped Ankles travelling circus winds its way somewhere between sold out shows in Birmingham and Sheffield, they’ve unleashed The Utopia Strong remix of ‘Rechargeable’. We understand this is the first remix by six-time world snooker champion Steve Davis and his band of merry noise makers - Kavus Torabi (Gong/Cardiacs/Knifeworld/Guapo) and Michael J. York (Coil/Teleplasmiste/Guapo). They take the woodwose’s ode to dancing until the sun comes up in a brilliant dark and disorientating direction. We’ve all been there.

If you wanted to catch the Snaps on their current UK tour, your only hope is Norwich or a woodwose disguise. Everything else is sold out.

Introducing Keeley Forsyth
Published 22 October 2019 by DM


We’re very pleased to welcome Keeley Forsyth to The Leaf Label. Her voice stopped us in our tracks when we first heard it, so we’re delighted to finally share her music with you. Get acquainted with the devastating first single, ‘Debris’, taken from an album of the same name. It is accompanied by an evocative video directed by Maxine Peake.

Born and raised in Oldham, Forsyth first made her name as an actor, and while the creation of music has been a constant feature in her life, she’s taken the long road to its release. Her debut album, with minimal piano and string arrangements by Leaf’s Matthew Bourne, showcases that elemental voice and an outpouring of candid, haunting lyrics detailing the seismic ruptures which take place behind closed doors. “There was a lot going on in my life that was heavy and hard,” she adds. “Songs were made under that moment.”

Debris is released January 17th. Pre-order now on black vinyl, limited edition gold vinyl, CD and download.

Keeley will perform at a Matthew Bourne-curated Daylight Music session at the Union Chapel in London on Saturday November 30 (12pm start).
