We’re delighted to be working with Avec Sans again – this time, at the Castle Hotel!
Avec Sans are Alice Fox and Jack St James, from Manchester and Trinidad respectively, now living in London. They make dreamy electronic pop music. Signed to US label Beverly Martel, Avec Sans’ single releases have achieved national radio play and media acclaim and their debut album Heartbreak Hi charted in the top 50 on iTunes.
Avec Sans started performing live in 2014 and quickly gained recognition for their energetic shows. Aiming to break down the walls of electronic laptop performances, Jack hacked his Novation launch pad to display a light show and uses three of them in tandem tilted towards the audience.
Avec Sans supported Ladyhawke on her 2016 UK tour and have played alongside acts such as Little Boots, Capital Cities, Bright Light Bright Light and The Pet Shop Boys. They’ve played live for BBC Introducing and at events such as SxSW, Cannes Lions, Canadian Music Week, CMJ New York, The Great Escape, Kendal Calling and other European events.
‘Avec Sans are a cut above your average duo… right on the sweet spot between hazy ‘80s nostalgia and 21st century introspection’ – NME
