The Lost Art To Support Cara Dillon
PLUS: Oxford Duo Hail Their Influences With Kitchen Cover Of Radiohead!
With new single ‘Equals’ due for release next week, Gordo Francis and Greg Hooper (collectively known as The Lost Art) have just announced an addition to their coming shows, by adding a second support for Cara Dillon in March.
The duo also decided to celebrate their influences by sending out a video of them covering ‘Climbing Up The Walls’ by Radiohead – with no fluff or parade: just them, two guitars, a camera and a kitchen. The Lost Art really makes this classic song their own in a video originally published back in 2013. Greg Hooper:
"To us, making sure that we're being original and innovative in whatever we do is really important, and we were glad to have caught this 'behind the scenes' video in the spur of the moment! We hope that this gives an insight into our process and our enjoyment of creating music together in time for our release of ‘Equals’."
Their debut self-titled album was released on 12th December 2014, to the delight of listeners and reviewers alike. The Lost Art are now poised to follow on with a hugely successful 2015 – with dates in the book, and a new video promoting the first single from the record, titled ‘Equals’. Produced by former Abbey Road engineer Pete Hutchings, ‘Equals’ is the first of eight tracks that made the album, taken from a vast catalogue of songs written by the duo since 2013. Gordo Francis, on the record:
“After starting out playing covers anywhere that would take us, we decided to write our own material – and the resulting experimentation left us with tons of songs to choose from! I believe this record best represents us today, and because of the process we have an album we can be proud of”
The Lost Art are also happy to announce a set of dates across the UK to accompany the single release, including the support spots for Cara Dillon, and also up-and-comer Lotte Mullan.
