Fourth Page Formed in 2010 almost by accident on a sunny Spring afternoon in Surrey, the improvised song work of Fourth Page has drawn comparisons from Schubert to David Sylvian, Scott Walker, Talk Talk and John Martyn, but in truth they sound like no-one but themselves. Their latest album 'The Forest from Above' was released on Leo Records and the band recently headlined a gig at Cafe Oto held in celebration of the label's 40th anniversary. “I thought it was perhaps the sort of song cycle Schubert might have written if he’d been around today. The anguish of Winterreise with its chinks of light…” (Fiona Talkington, Late Junction, BBC Radio 3)

are a dark folk duo comprising Polly Perry (formerly of Polly and the Billets Doux), and author and guitarist Seb Hunter. They have just released their second, highly acclaimed album The Dark Ages. Drawing on English folk, experimental rock and ambient music they have created a sound that shifts through the gears across the album, recalling at different times Polly Harvey, Bert Jansch, Popul Vuh and Nick Drake. "Drawing from jazz, rock and folk Provincials cast a spell, conjuring a resonant, hypnotic soundworld recalling Pentangle, These New Puritans, Talk Talk and David Lynch's film soundtracks." Folk Radio "Meandering along a path that stretches from the Norman church dotted shingly shoreline of the southeast coast of Romney to a revenge-soaked Iberia, The Provincials conjure up a lamentable present. Perhaps we are indeed doomed. Perhaps these are the end days or the darkness before the light. Whatever the truth, this diaphanous duo has articulated such augurs with a gauze-y, beautiful veneer worth savoring and improved no end since their last album." David Valvona, Monolith Cocktail
