The People Versus have been quickly recognised as one of the most exciting talents coming out of the Folk Music scene in Oxford, and now they are bringing their harmonies, driving rhythms and storytelling tradition to the North Wall for the first time. After selling out their debut EP launch at The Jericho they have returned with a new member and a reinvigorated set, cited as a must see from BBC introducing.
Calling their sound ‘Museum-Pop’ it borrows from a variety of genres and traditions; Their combined voices and instrumental lines swoop, circle, and support the beguiling voice and personality of the lead singer Alice. Each song is taut with feeling and longing, inspired by Greek myth and tales from Shakespeare.
“The resulting sound is “Dreamy… it just pulls you in.” BBC introducing
“Their energy is infectious… their harmonies to die for” Big Ginger Tom Music
