We’re delighted to be working with Living Body – plus Peaness and Tim The Mute!


Living Body is the new project from Leeds-based Chicagoan Jeff T. Smith (formerly, Juffage) featuring longtime collaborators Katie Harkin (Harkin, Sky Larkin, Wild Beasts, Sleater-Kinney) and Tom Evans (Vessels). Rising from the ashes of their acclaimed ‘Sonic Cauldron’ concert at Left Bank Leeds in 2013, the group is now augmented by new and additional live members Alice Rowan (Mayshe-Mayshe) and Sarah Statham (Esper Scout).

Expanding on the need for music to bring joy into the lives of others, and Smith’s fascination with the contortion of the pop song into a uniquely imaginative and immediate form, Living Body aims to exist in a world of skin and information overload in 2016.


Three piece indie-pop band Peaness formed in Chester, England in late 2014. The debut EP No Fun was released in August 2015 and is available online now. The trio have gigged extensively up and down the country in the space of a year, winning ‘the hearts of unsuspecting listeners across the length and breadth of the DIY scene, right through to BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens’.

They have been featured on local BBC Introducing shows Wales and Merseyside, BBC 6 Music and more recently BBC Radio 1 with their latest release Oh George. Available now is a limited edition 7″ AA single of I’m not Your Problem / Fortune Favours The Bold released via Canadian DIY label Kingfisher Bluez. They head back into the studio at the start of Oct and are planning to release more material in late 2016 in the form of a 2nd EP.


Tim The Mute is a singer and songwriter from Vancouver, Canada. He has released six 7″ records and two full lengths; Why Live (LP on Kingfisher Bluez, Cassette on Lost Sound Tapes (USA) and Number Four Door (UK)) and November’s follow up Take My Life… Please! coming on LP from Kingfisher Bluez and cassette via Lost Sound Tapes.

Tim’s distinct warble and happy/sad lyrics are a staple of the Vancouver music scene. With relatable songs about anglophilia, sparkly vampires, and sadness, there is surely something to be found for anyone who rates earnestness over technical ability.

Tim will be joined by Kim Gray, the solo project of Skinny Kids guitarist and singer Trevor Gray.
