Laish – Time Elastic album launch party show
Laish are a band piloted by the mesmeric guitarist and songwriter, Danny Green, a master of captivating confessionals and a thoroughly engaging front man. A unique voice, musically intricate songs and engaging stagecraft have led to ecstatic reviews of both their lushly produced records and their energetic live shows. This is a real must see!
New album, Time Elastic, on esteemed French label, Talitres (The National, Micah
P Hinson) is a bold step forward, presenting a songwriter at the height of his powers.
A reputation for compelling, energetic and joyous live performances, Laish have played at prestigious venues such as Union Chapel, St Pancras Old Church & Barbican, and have toured the UK & Europe extensively, including festivals like End of the Road, Larmer Tree and Cambridge Folk. They have also amassed strong radio support from, amongst others, Steve Lamacq, Tom Robinson and Chris Hawkins at BBC 6Music.
