The Musgraves

Spring-loaded handclaps and irresistible sing-along choruses influenced by music of the 50s and 60s
If you could peel my heart, pull back the folds of sorrow, you'll see there's nothing left to see.
lyrics from Last Of Me

Midlands based roots-pop four piece The Musgraves established themselves as ‘ones to watch’ in 2012 via their critically acclaimed debut EP, ‘Lost In Familiarity’.

Their debut UK single, ‘Last Of Me’, was championed by Graham Norton on his BBC Radio 2, with the TV personality inviting them to appear on his BBC television talk show.

Influenced by 50s and 60s pop/soul and folk, the band have a sound that sits somewhere between The House Martins, The Ronettes and The Beach Boys. Spring-loaded handclaps and irresistible sing-along choruses cradle often bittersweet tales of love, friendship and, ultimately, identity, providing unexpected levels of depth to their rootsy, pop anthems in waiting.

With a growing reputation as an amazing live band and a yet to be released debut album packed with huge feel-good pop singles, The Musgraves are gearing up for even greater things in the months ahead…
