Amy Thatcher & Francesca Knowles - Emergency of the Female Kind

If you’re in the market for a new accordion and percussion duo from Newcastle – and I can sense that you are – then you’re going to go a bundle for this. Thatcher (accordion) has shared stages with the likes of Kathryn Tickell, while Knowles (drums, percussion, keys) has toured the world with drumming theatre show Spark! Their debut album is an envelope-pushing blast of excitement that warps folky jazz and prog into new and unfamiliar shapes. Exhilarating stuff. DP

Out 9 March, self release
