Keston Cobblers' Club - For Words

When I first heard about Kent based group Keston Cobblers' Club, I was curious as to what their genre, 'fuzzfolk', actually consist of. I initially imagined a group of men with shaggy beards singing songs about apples with the distortion on their guitars turned up to 10. How wrong I was.

Their latest single "For Words", which is available as a free download, is a cute, bordering-on-twee song that contains all the vital ingredients of a folk band (including the trusty banjo), yet does not sound like your typical folk band. Its sumptuous use of boy/girl vocals and its expansive sound call to mind an earthier version of Tuung.

Keston Cobblers' Club will release their debut album, "One, For Words" on 27th August.
