The Sentimentalists in Leeds
Tuesday 31st July 2018
Sentimentalists are –
Phil Fowler – Vocals / Guitars / Autoharp
Daniel Bath – Keyboards
John Shepard – Drums
Presenting songs of melancholy, dark humour and gentle defiance, Sentimentalists stand for lyricism, lovely music, and character. Mark Radcliffe (BBC radio) recently described Sentimentalists as “truly marvellous”. Mark Coles (BBC radio) said “beautiful…in a miserable way”, guitarist Pete Greenway from The Fall described Sentimentalists as “the band that the world is waiting for”…. Sentimentalists played Glastonbury in 2015.
Expect “A northern moralistic Ian Dury”; “Tindersticks meet Divine Comedy”; “Alan Bennett meets Sparklehorse”; “Like The Smiths and The Beautiful South, a perfectly mis-matched blend of edgy lyrics and upbeat melodies” (Yorkshire Post).
It’ll make sense when you see them.
“The very epitome of working class social commentary” (Maverick)
“A buzz combo; a brooding, captivating presence.” (R2 magazine)
“Special, funny, just gorgeous” (Rozina Breen, BBC Radio Leeds)
