A co-promotion with Free Range
'Its Morning'; a film and music collaboration, featuring Mercury Prize band Led Bib opens at the Gulbenkian cinema and combines film, song and improvisation to full cinematic effect.
Led Bib, known for their boundary stretching rock and jazz, that garnered them a Mercury Prize nomination and a fistful of prestigious awards, set off last year in the hull of a boat in east London, together with lyricists and songwriters to create a suite of songs.
Emerging from their underwater session, elements of their groovy, heavy, improvised sound remained but they were now set against fragile vocals and poignant lyrics, taking them into a much gentler song world. The music also resulted in a collaboration with a US based film-maker and the final result is a music project that live works either as a stand alone concert or a multi disciplinary art and music project.
Led Bib’s album, the result of the session, is called ‘It’s Morning’ and comes out in September 2019 on RareNoise Records. It sees them working with lyricists and singers Sharron Fortnam(Cardiacs, North Sea Radio Orchestra) and Jack Hues(Wang Chung, The Quartet). It is a record very much in the spirit of the classic LP, with 2 sections of music.
Led Bib have been together for 15 years and have released 9 albums to huge critical acclaim. This album promises to bring them to new heights with its mix of the classic ‘Led Bib’ sound and this new broadening into the world of songs.
