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.
