A Slice of Electro-pop Heaven: Two Sevens

SEEN is much beguiled by South London duo, Two Sevens who are set to launch their debut single to coincide with a special London show at the Notting Hill Arts Club on Tuesday the 13th of December 2016.

Entitled ‘Two Sevens’, the single was co-produced with Paul Bateman and is the first track to be lifted from the band’s forthcoming eponymously titled debut album. Eminently danceable, SEEN predicts great things for the duo.

A stunning collection of perfectly crafted three-minute-long electro-pop songs, the album features seven brand new tracks including ‘207’, a composition co-written with Young Marble Giants founder, Stuart Moxham.

Taking inspiration from Passion Pit, Hot Chip, Blondie and Eno, Two Sevens were born earlier this year when Sonya Frances (vocals) and Matthew Davis (instruments) discovered that they both shared a passion for quirky and distinctive 80s-influenced pop. Sonya is also a professional dancer and actor and has appeared on stage, TV and films including The Danish Girl, while Matthew was previously signed to EMI music and has written songs for many artists in the US & UK.

The live date at Notting Hill Arts Club will see the pair joined on stage by a full band line up featuring Billy Stookes (drums, percussion, backing vocals), Elizabeth Gauvey-Kern (bass, backing vocals), Axel Lang (keyboards) and Sofie Plauborg (guitar, backing vocals).

Following the London show, Two Sevens will announce new live dates to coincide with the mini-album launch in the New Year. SEEN will be following their progress with great interest.

Sculpture in the City, Art for Everyone

SEEN thoroughly enjoyed a preview of the 18 new artworks around the financial district’s square mile. Set up by The City of London in 2010, this excellent initiative expands its footprint every year, improving the area and proving that when people are happy, they work better.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
