Ian Todd Live

GBP7.00
With a full band line up, Ian Todd will be performing his new album, "Seven Signs of a Soul" in its entirety. 
 
The album is a concoction of immersive experimental art-rock and Neo-psychedelia. Each song represents one of the seven signs of life, expanding into other subjects such as mental wellbeing, stoicism and anti-consumerism.

"I don't know what this song reminds me of; but it makes me want to lie down in a darkened room and listen to the Stone Roses" Brody Swain, BBC Music Introducing Coventry & Warwickshire.

"Ian too seems to set himself no false constraints nor be bound by the shackles of genre expectations: he goes where his particular inclination takes him" Andy Holdcroft, Hot Music Live presents.
 
The show will be crowdfunding for vinyl copies of the new album. There will be merch: phone cases, paintings, previous albums and many more. 
 
Support from Paradise of the Titans. ‘Paradise of the Titans’ (based in Coventry) like to take the audience on an ethereal synth-pop journey (embellished with pastel jumpsuits and dark-matter entities).. The Mermaid EP is like a soundtrack from a supernatural filmscape, in which Singer/Songwriter Alice Weston’s reversed vocals multiply in intricate harmonies (reminiscent of an alien language). Among a catchy buzz of minimalist synth the otherworldly themes range from magic Walkmans, shamanic spells, alien kisses and Mermaids. Drawing inspiration from Kate Bush, Gary Numan and Grimes’ early work, the 80’s inspired drums (rich with reverb) complete the drama.
 
The EP (available on limited edition glittery cassette tape) coincided with the release of the official music video (a collaboration between director Fraser West of WeTheConspirators, and Apparition Visuals (Alice’s Videography company), where iridescent stage art, home-made tinsel strewn crop tops and mystical orbs give the impression of an Indie Sci-fi cult classic
