UK folk-favourites Keston Cobblers Club are back with their addictive new single, ‘Mrs Dixon’ – out now.
With a nostalgic charm, and that distinctive Cobblers sound that has already won them an army of fans and critical acclaim across their ten years as a band, ‘Mrs Dixon’ is unapologetically catchy – a folk-enthused earworm which sonically nods back to the band’s beginnings when their music had a more traditional bluegrass sound. Not to be taken too seriously, the story of ‘Mrs Dixon’ centres on escapism and the balance of work and fun in life. Matthew says ‘We wanted to start the year with a slightly convivial track to put a little warmth into January. I wrote the track with the early days of Cobblers in mind, with our first ever single You-go and its focus on melody and harmonies atop of a stripped back instrumental.’
‘Mrs Dixon’ is the second taste of the band’s upcoming new studio album, following the release of last year’s surprise track ‘Find My Way’ (released when the Cobblers were touring the UK with Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbot). Fans will be able to hear both tracks along with a whole load of other new songs live, when the quartet kick off their brand-new UK tour this April starting in Nottingham on the 21st April. There’s also another European tour in the works, and a busy summer of festivals.
Over the last 10 years, Keston Cobblers Club have been steadily building a name for themselves. Their 2015 album ‘Wildfire’ won them huge praise everywhere from BBC Legends such as Steve Lamacq, Dermot O’Leary, Edith Bowman and Bob Harris, MOJO Magazine, The Guardian, The Independent and The Financial Times to Songlines, fRoots and Clash as well as a Maida Vale session for BBC Radio 6. Their last two albums, ‘Almost Home’ and ‘Siren,’ further increased their following, with great industry praise from such as Zoe Ball and Lauren Laverne, supported by multiple European headline tours and crescendoing with a 10-year anniversary.
Keston Cobblers Club is formed of brother-sister duo Matthew and Julia Lowe with school friends Tom Sweet and Harry Stasinopoulos (plus Daniel Slade on Tuba).
‘Mrs Dixon’ will be available from January 26th 2022. Stay tuned for more details on the new album, coming soon.
