About this Event
Bed and Breakfast Presents Astles and the Balloon Moon Orchestra live at Dead Wax Digbeth!
18 September 2022
Full line-up TBA
Astles’ songwriting celebrates the refuge of music to a young lad in the North West, surrounded by football-focussed men and machismo — to which his music is the perfect antidote. For two years, Astles has been working independently to create the world around his music: from the upcoming string releases recorded with Sophie Ellis and Bill Ryder Jones, to the expansion of his live show, at points featuring the full Balloon Moon Orchestra. The Liverpool-based songwriter is back with a spring in his step and a collection of songs that furthers his formative sound, described as ‘gorgeous, lilting indie’ by the NME.
Astles is embarking on an independent UK tour this September in collaboration with Bed & Breakfast Live Music and supported by PRS Momentum funding. The Balloon Moon Orchestra will be playing at unconventional venues around the country starting at a bespoke independent cinema in Astles’ hometown Southport. Having recently signed to 7476 (Matt Maltese, Mathilda Mann), Astles will release his first single on the label this Autumn.
