Campfire 2016 | TRILLS & Florence Lawrence Chorus
Fri 14 October 2016, 19:00 – 22:30 BST
You’re invited to join in the Campfire Club! In time-honoured fashion we will gather around roaring blazes enveloped in music and entertainment. High spirits will be maintained with good ol’ sing-a-longs, storytelling, special guests and who knows what else. Every fire will be a unique event with a magic concoction of spontaneity, rare talents and the unknown, all drenched in the sepia tones of firelight and tinged with wooded aromas.
TRILLS are four school friends from London who sing in a way few artists can, creating spellbinding and mesmeric harmonies, honed after years of singing a cappella together. Having been heckled at an 80th birthday party with 'Are you the sexy cabaret?' TRILLS were ready to sack it all in until that afternoon they were discovered by a film music supervisor.
A few months later they were invited to sing a bespoke track for the UK ‘Suffragette’ trailer with the song racking up 80,000 YouTube plays. The track went on to win best composition in a trailer at the 2016 Music and Sound awards. Meryl Streep, who starred in the film, said the song made her cry.
TRILLS went from a bedroom acoustic act to working with maverick Swedish producer, Johan Hugo (M.I.A., The Very Best, Vampire Weekend, Mumford & sons). Their upcoming debut EP, Lacuna, showcases the band’s talent for emotionally wrought songwriting and instantly memorable melodies. Lacuna’s lead single “Mud and Gold” was quickly snapped up by Disney for the trailer for their summer smash, Pete’s Dragon.
TRILLS finished Summer 2016 with shows at Glastonbury, Latitude and London’s XOYO. Their Lacuna EP will be released on their own label this Autumn.
Florence Lawrence Chorus
Florence Lawrence Chorus is a choir composed of 100% grown ass women. Founded in 2015 and making their debut performance in celebration of a birthday and the creation of a perfect replica of David Byrne’s iconic big suit, FLC is now 12 members strong and growing all the time. They do weddings and basically any party, and are a regular fixture at The Surround, a monthly event in South London celebrating DIY and experimental music. Led by Katie Weatherall they have been known to sing Enya, Erykah Badu, Talking Heads and Smog, often all in the same set. Their likes include Doo-Wop, sharp tailoring, crumbling majesty, crisps and each other.
