On the 10th February 2017 Stanlæy will be supported by her band and string quartet to present to you the new album Ouroboros! Support by Cat Eliza T, and taking place at the atmospheric Art House, this will be an extra special gig so we would love to see you there to celebrate all our work with you!
Stanlæy is currently a Southampton based 9-piece band led by Bethany Stenning: Bethany Stenning (Electric guitar and vocals), Ed Holland (Bass), Torjus Martissen (Drums), Kitty O’Neal and Emma Atkins (Backing vocals), Matt Andrews, Emma Benson, Ellie Dawson and Sophie Blundell (String quartet).
Stanlæy will be performing to celebrate the release of the debut album, Ouroboros. Ouroboros was written and recorded by Bethany in the Summer of 2016, in Cornwall. Inspired by the vastness of the ocean and the sky, and the concept of Ouroboros the ancient Greek symbol depicting a serpent or dragon eating its own tail. Ouroboros often symbolises introspection, eternity, and cyclicality. It is the ultimate symbol of renewal, that spins in an infinite cyclic circle of nature’s creation and destruction. There are 10 tracks – each track explores this concept from different hues, transforming the Ouroboros serpent into a water-snake.
Bethany's wide range of influences stem from the likes of Bjork, Sigur Ros, and the Dirty Projectors. “The Fader” magazine describes Bethany’s sound as “eerie” with “Kate Bush-esque vocals” in their review of her song “The Love Machine” which made it through to the long-list of Glastonbury’s upcoming talent competition 2016.
