Having recently performed the last of their Brilliant and the Dark shows – in the sold out Elgar Room at The Royal Albert Hall no less - Gaggle are very pleased to announce a special Christmas show on December 15th at the New Empowering Church, London.
The Gaggle Christmas Service will act as a preview for Gaggle’s eagerly anticipated debut album, due out in early 2012; Gaggle will also be treating audiences to some seasonal surprises. Anyone who has seen Gaggle live can attest to the power of their performance, this show is not to be missed. After releasing their acclaimed debut single in March 2010, Gaggle emerged as an exciting and indefinable force to be reckoned with. They’ve have spent the last 18 months dedicated to their reworking of The Brilliant and the Dark – a 1969 cantata for women's voices originally performed by 1,000 women volunteers at the Royal Albert Hall. This show sees a special unique location at the marvellously bizarre and interesting Hackney New Empowering Church space, next to London Fields.
Woman's Hour began in 2010 as a three piece of siblings Fiona and William Burgess and friend Nicolas Graves, although they formed in London all three grew up together in Kendal. Initially they set out to make sparse bedroom pop songs combining hooks with experimentation and interesting arrangements. The band then introduced long time friend Josh Hunnisett adding a depth to their sound that had previously been absent, writing and recording as a four piece.
James Mcmahon from Kerrang magazine will be manning the decks between the bands
