After a busy few months recording, homeplanetearth are back in town to headline the GT for their first London show since the Garage Upstairs in January, a celebration to mark release of their EP, 'homeplanetearth'.
Support from JINNWOO.
Formed in the heart of rural Oxfordshire but with blood running from across the world, these four friends incorporate indie atmospheric synth sounds with melodic vocal harmonies from siblings Josephine and Thomas. Taking influence from a variety of different artists, homeplanetearth bring a dreamy, almost haunting new sound to some songs whilst contrasting it with bright happy tunes that you can dance the night away to.

In 2014, Brighton-based troubadour Jinnwoo (aka Ben Webb) released his debut ‘Your Baby’ E.P. and a string of singles, title track ‘Your Baby’ as well as ‘Solo Man’, ‘You Should Be Feeling This Elliott’ and ‘I Am, I Am The World’s Oldest Man.’ The releases collectively garnered coverage across The Guardian Guide, The Line of Best Fit, Clash, 405, For Folk Sake – among many others – all accumulating in Jinnwoo being named one of The Independent’s ‘Faces to Watch 2015’.
Jinnwoo’s charms are evident immediately on listening to his spooked folk songs. His distinctive, fragile vocal and confessional reel are laid bare on stark folk soundscapes which glisten with carefully placed haunting string arrangements and Jinnwoo’s exceptional acoustic guitar work.
