Trembling Bells are a Glasgow based band who seek to reanimate the mythic landscapes of Great Britain via a love for Traditional Folk, Early music and canonical Rock. Founded in early 2008 by renowned UK drummer, Alex Neilson.
Trembling Bells play The Buyers Club, Liverpool the week they release a fab new mini-album, and ahead of a live date at Cafe Oto and an appearance at Stewart Lee's All Tomorrows Parties Festival.
'Brilliant... concise, deeply romantic, totally original ****' Mojo.
'Freewheeling and delightfully quirky ****' The Guardian
'CD Of The Week... terrific... they take the antic forms, loosen them and make them arresting and new once more' The Observer
'They are so wild, they are so British, they are so exciting. They merge so many different and exciting forms of music that I love, from traditional English folk, to jazz, to prog, and the meld it together in a way that is not exclusive at all. It's embracing, it's colourful, it's funny, they're full of personalities - I love the whole kit and kaboodle of what they do.' Stuart Maconie
Sovereign Self, their current album was named album of 2015 by BBC Radio 6 Music. Now the Bells are back with Wide Majestic Aire; a seven-track mini-album, released 01/04/2016.
The band featured in Will Hodgkinson’s book Ballad of Britain and Jeanette Leech’s Shifting Sands. Both books can be read as surveys of the contemporary psychedelicfolk movement.This acclaim has ensured favourable comparisons to such folk-rock pioneers as Incredible String Band and Richard Thompson, and indeed Trembling Bells were invited to participate in a prestigious Incredible String Band tribute concert (A Very Cellular Song) at the Barbican, London.
