AS HEARD ON BBC 6MUSIC’S STEVE LAMACQ RECOMMENDS
The band are a permanent fixture on the festival circuit and have built up a stellar reputation as a live band. Despite the lingering influence of Covid lockdowns on live music in 2021, Cable Street Collective played a near-full summer of festivals.
Festival highlights (so far) including: Latitude, Secret Garden Party, Electric Picnic, Great Estate Festival (just before Manic Street Preachers!), Boardmasters, Glastonbury, Shambala, Boomtown, The Isle of Wight, Bestival, and the Lake of Stars Festival (Malawi). Recent supports have included Molotov Jukebox, The Dualers and Go_A!
Their second EP, Where Now From Here? (2018) earned them critical plaudits and radio play on BBC Radio 6Music, Radio X and Amazing Radio, among others. Their debut album Battle Lines (2022) includes songs that have been featured on BBC 6Music, with Bells & Whistles selected for Tom Robinson’s BBC Introducing Mixtape of the Year.
Written largely during lockdowns, Battle Lines is 13-track LP that mixes the upbeat rhythms and Congolese-influenced guitar sounds that have made them such a fixture on the summer festival circuit with more reflective moments, showcasing a new depth to their songwriting.
