FEET have had quite the year. George (Jeep), Oli, Harry, Callum & (newcomer) Ben formed in Coventry at University in 2017. The five-piece shot out of the traps at a pace with their attention grabbing first single “Petty Thieving.” Whilst all juggling their final years at Uni in Coventry, the band hit the road for the long hot summer of 2018, travelling the length and breadth of the UK in a tiny hatchback, for a host of key festival appearances (including Field Day, Truck, Electric Fields, Tramlines and many more), headline shows of their own, and more supports with their old friend Declan McKenna. The band, who were recently named one of NME’s “100 Essential New Artists for 2019,” are joined in the studio by producer Cam Blackwood (Jamie T, London Grammar, Billie Marten. George Ezra), with the first fruit of those sessions, ‘English Weather’, to be revealed on January 25th .Timeline is here.

Let me know if you need more. Story behind “English Weather”: ‘English Weather’ was written by the band during the ‘Barn Sessions’, as they’ve come to be known. In-between festivals and shows this summer, the band set up their live kit, and lived in an actual working barn in the middle of a farm in Bedfordshire. Camping out, hanging out with local farmers and living off the land for 6 weeks, the band spent all day and night writing and rehearsing a slew of new songs, which will make up their debut. To thank the farmers and locals for their ‘patience’, the band ended their time at the barn, by playing a full set of songs for them in a field–the inaugural ‘FEET-FEST’?.
