“Narrow Plains are onto something good here for sure”
Baylen Leonard – Amazing Radio
“I don’t often have live music, but I just had to have this band in”
Jo Good – BBC Radio London
Award winning London-based indie band Narrow Plains release their self-titled debut album on the 14th February 2016 after selling out the O2 Academy Islington. This follows a successful year of accolades winning the ‘Hard Rock Rising’ 2015 award, crowned ‘Finalists’ in UpriseFM’s ‘Live in your City’, and landing a recording with U.S recording engineer legend, John Davenport, birthing the Narrow Plains 2015 single ‘Choices’, which subsequently propelled them to number one in the Reverbnation Charts. John Davenport most known for his work with John Lennon, Rolling Stones and Bruce Springsteen, and who produced their single ‘Choices’; flew in especially for their sold out album launch – “Wow, what a great show, you guys are fantastic!” – John Davenport.
Narrow Plains self-titled debut album fills the room with stripped down percussion and rolling folk guitar, the bass is deep and brooding while the singing is gravelly yet intimate. It’s a folk-tinged indie rock album that evolves from dark and energetic to hushed balladry with sentimental soul. The album includes ‘So Rewind’, a song which was previously hand-picked by the BBC as ‘Track Of The Day’, and also the very recent video/single ‘I Should’ve Known’, the instant popularity of which helped Narrow Plains achieve a sell out launch event at the O2 Academy. Already obtaining National spot-plays and play-listings on Amazing Radio, BBC London, multiple regionals and even gaining support from the Head of BBC Radio 2 and 6 Music, this album seems like it could be a game changer for Narrow Plains.
