Rather than shy away from the human condition, Bess Atwell is here to celebrate it. She suspends mundane everyday reality in a glittering web of emotional escapism, her self-assured song-writing and tight guitar-work seizing ears on the radio and at Brighton’s The Great Escape festival. After 2016 debut album Hold Your Mind, Atwell’s solo project evolved into a full band sound. Their dynamism and Staves-like swell of vocal harmonies adds punch to her songs, but preserves the powerful restraint that defines her earlier work. Recent singles Swimming Pool and Grace tease at a forthcoming EP due later this spring. Struck by her commanding poise and poetic magic, we’re delighted to welcome Bess to Green Man.
