Following the success of their recent album Sanctuary, which was described by The Line of Best Fit as being “bold, daring and dazzling with sheer pop excellence“, Gengahr have today released an acoustic EP of some of the LP’s stand out tracks. Featuring the BBC Radio 1 playlisted single ‘Heavenly Maybe‘ (which also saw huge support from BBC 6 Music and Beats 1), the stripped back EP is a beautifully crafted package, with additional backing vocal, strings and piano.
The band’s front man Felix Bushe explains, “lock down gave us an unexpected opportunity to reimagine some of the songs off our new record. It was a really interesting process stripping down our most built up production to date and seeing how the songs would exist in this new form.”
