Former Tribes Frontman Johnny Lloyd to support The Fratellis 

seenlondon

Lloyd will join The Fratellis for a host of dates across the UK, winding up with two dates at the Kentish Forum on 13th and 14th December.
“woozy, washed-out guitar work with a metronomic beat and languid vocals to create a warm psychedelic outing” The Line Of Best Fit

The gigs follow his own Autumn headline tour, plus high profile support slots with Tom Odell and Goo Goo Dolls, which saw Lloyd play some of his biggest shows to date.
“the songwriter’s finest solo moment to date” CLASH

Lloyd will be performing songs from his new EP ‘Dreamland’, which features tracks produced by Hugo White from The Maccabees as well as Jamie T. The EP is out now on Xtra Mile Recordings and reached Number 12 in the iTunes Pop Chart. SEEN’s particular favourite is ‘Hello Death’.
“…his lo-fi melancholy is decidedly unpolished, and it’s all the better for its roughness” Pigeons & Planes

The new single ‘Happy Humans’ is currently being played across Radio X, picking up where previous single ‘Pilgrims’ left off; it was playlisted at Radio X after bagging the Shock Of The New daytime slot as well as receiving further plays on 6Music, thanks to Steve Lamacq and Dermot O’Leary’s Radio 2 show. The video, which features British Actor Douglas Booth, premiered on VEVO, clocking up over 50,000 views.

09/12/16  –  Newcastle Upon Tyne – O2 Academy

MO-GA: Perfectly Imperfect

As the Sun shines on Earth, so MO-GA’s gender-fluid designs grace the bodies of everyone, rejoicing in ambiguity. Multiple sleeves and feathers recall the animal kingdom in all its glorious diversity; it’s a new aesthetic.

Cocktails at the General Store

SEEN is tireless in her cocktail research, and very much enjoyed travelling to Highbury last week to try The General Store’s new summer cocktail menu and to check out the new interior. She was delighted to sample a Honey Mimosa, very sweet and fruity and just the ticket after a hot journey. It was, as its name suggests, a Mimosa with just a touch of honey.

Canaletto: A Drawing Workshop with Alexandra Blum

SEEN has long been an admirer of Alexandra Blum’s liminal and apocalyptic renderings of London’s urban spaces, in which the capital seems ever-changing. It is the artist’s job to capture not only space but the passage of time itself.

Love Hunt at the British Museum

SEEN had the pleasure (pun intended) of being invited to a ‘Love Hunt’ at the British Museum. The museum, founded in 1753, is committed to preserving art, culture and history, and has collected around 8 million objects. These artefacts come from every corner of the world, revealing a fragment of many significant moments in time, from Mesopotamia to the Vikings; from the Inuits to the Indians. So, when one embarks on a visit to the world famous British Museum, where does one start?
