Accredited already with two of the most universally acclaimed albums of this nascent decade - 2012's 'Leland' & 2014's 'Minutes of Sleep' - Francis Harris has assuredly matched this prolificacy and endeavour with captivating form.
Eschewing trends by approaching the oft maligned long-player format with an unaffected integrity, these works both encompass a scope and scale befitting the broad canvasses they play out on. Enriched in personality, Harris' music takes its visceral form from the environment in which it is captured: vintage tape recorders, synthesisers, microphones and DI boxes; together with his own Scissor & Thread imprint.
The label, a collaboration with Anthony Collins, has been reflective of this same reverential diligence since its inception. The intricately woven aesthetics of which match the bespoke pseudonym perfectly; as something curated and cultivated lovingly, by hand. Expect Francis to bring the same special signatures to his extended set at Plastic People on Easter Sunday.
This exclusive show is part of his album tour for 'Minutes of Sleep'.
