Boo Hewerdine & Yvonne Lyon
G Live, Guildford
Fri 25 October 2019
|SHOW INFORMATION||PRE-SHOW CURRY|
The new recordings on Before are a perfect contrast of mood and theme to the gloriously rich, full band pop sound of 2017’s acclaimed Swimming in Mercury album. This new album finds Boo focused on the art of reduction, consumed by fine details and found sound, songs where the fragility and beauty of life are laid bear with a stark emotive honesty.
Before was recorded in the first weeks of 2019, with supreme Danish multi-instrumentalist Gustaf Ljungren Boo’s only collaborator on the set. Whilst this is an album for the times (that echoes the darkness and confusion in Europe surrounding it’s pre-Brexit conception) Before is also a timely reminder of the power of simplicity, Hewerdine’s lyricism set to a subtle backdrop of vintage instrumentation.
Yvonne's fourth album in a row has been named Record of the week on BBC Scotland. She has been played on BBC by Bob Harris, Claire Balding Michael Ball and Janice Long. Toured with Eddi Reader, and supported Bela Fleck, Boo Hewerdine and Chris Difford, she has two Bob Harris sessions under her belt, and recently performed on his Under The Apple Tree Session.
