Pavey Ark

Close Your Eyes and Think of Nothing (self release)

Pavey Ark are a fast-rising folk outfit from Hull, fronted by singer/songwriter Neil Thomas, who have already caught a good hearing at Glastonbury and Cornbury. The band cite artists such as Nick Drake and Michael Chapman as influences, but, in truth, they lean more towards the fleecily warm pop side of things (fans of Father John Misty will find plenty to enjoy here). Gorgeous.
