The dutch trio Snowapple, known for their eccentric folklore style, seek to rekindle the relationship with UK fans on February 14th at the De Grey Street live music venue.
The New Adelphi Club in Hull has, over the last thirty years, never failed to programme an eclectic and entertaining mix of local, national and international artists. Hull and Holland have long had a connection enabled by the ferry across the North Sea.
The all girl group Snowapple visited these shores in 2013 to play the Adelphi Club, where the effortless soaring choral harmonies were described as ‘bewitching’. Now the acclaimed dutch trio seek to repeat the experience as they release and tour their latest album Illusion. Described as being ‘beautiful and beguiling in equal measure’ the new album sees a marked growth by Snowapple, a move away from the catchy folk/pop of their debut release, creating a richer more developed sound.
Sharing the Valentine’s Day billing is The Dyr Sister, a wonderfully expressive violist/singer from Hull. The 29 year old classically trained multi-instrumentalist Sally Currie formed the Dyr Sister after she returned from an extended stay in Mexico. Her music is characterised by unique vocals, to the haunting sound of her beloved viola, combined with unusual imagery, backed by loop pedal percussion created live on stage. The Dyr Sister released and toured her first EP last year, played at local festivals including Folk in a Box at Freedom Festival and a number of sellout shows in London and Manchester.
Illusion by Snowapple was released 3rd February 2015 on Debt Records
