Countdown to Latitude... Turin Brakes

TURIN BRAKES

Olly Knights and Gale Paridjanian first soft-shoed into view in 2001 as part of the ‘new acoustic movement’, quickly making a name for themselves with their mellifluous and prettified, alt-pop tuneage and sweet vocal harmonising.

However, their upcoming album, ‘Dark On Fire’ (due out in September) promises to show them in a rather different light.

Latitude takes place this weekend, July 12 - 15 at Henham Park, Southwold, Suffolk.
