‘Love Run is an extraordinary debut, a masterpiece of swirling, brooding, often epic drama. It grabs you and refuses to let go.’ – FATEA

‘Original, varied, engaging, exciting…the best thing I’ve heard this year’ - For Folk’s Sake

‘One of the year’s most exhilarating, exciting and visceral debuts, they deserve to be huge’ - Folk Radio UK

Since the release of their debut album ‘Love Run’ The Amazing Devil have grown to become an eight-person 'intriguing, beguiling rapscallion gypsy orchestra' (Record Collector) with a raging north-sea sound that puts them at the cutting edge of the alternative folk revolution. Formed by Madeleine Hyland (previously Dexys ‘impossibly beautiful’ (The Guardian) guest vocalist) and Joey Batey in 2015 when they were thrown together by the RSC, (which took them to Broadway and the battered back-alley dives of New York) they are gathering a cult following in Soho and around London for their intense, raucous, heart-storming live shows, full of beating toms, battlecries, soaring harmonies, mournful cellos, searing electric guitar, flute and violin, creating an intricately layered symphony of the mo¬¬¬dern and the mythic.

LOCKS are a London based alternative skeletal strings bluesy band, made up of L.Geary-Griffin (lead vocal / guitar), Mike Byrne (double bass), Marian McClenagan (fiddle) and Andy Marvell (drums).

Their debut EP Rattle Them Bones (featuring Wishbone & The Gin Song) was championed by Steve Lamacq and also received positive responses from Tom Robinson & Gary Crowley and lead to them being chosen to open the BBC Introducing stage at The Great Escape 2017. The Gin Song was also one of Steve Lamacq’s ‘Best of the year so far (2017).

The group have spent many months recording their debut album from which Skin is the first single to be released later this year. Skin delves deeper into the darker aspects of human nature and the inner demons each person can be faced with throughout their life. It has already gained more support from BBC6 Music’s Steve Lamaqc once again and has become one of his Livener tracks, Shaun Keaveny, Chris Hawkins and local radio including The Irish Jam and Wandsworth Radio.
After playing with a variety of different bands including rockabilly, traditional Irish, indie and nu-folk, these misfits found themselves in a rehearsal room together writing parts for murder ballads involving burying bodies, serial killers, lynch mobs and voodoo witches.
