GYPSYFINGERS ANNOUNCE THEIR FIRST HEADLINE TOUR OF THE UK, TOGETHER WITH A BRAND NEW SINGLE, HALF WORLD.

Following their critically well-received slot as the opening act on Tubular Bells For Two’s UK tour last autumn, Gypsyfingers now embark on their first ever UK tour, with a brand new single, Half World, released to coincide with the dates.

Gypsyfingers was founded by Victoria and Luke Oldfield as a duo, the former’s classical music training and love of dance music fusing with the latter’s folk and rock background to form a unique ethereal blend of folk, rock and pop that is all their own.

 

They recorded their debut album, Circus Life, in typically unconventional fashion at Tilehouse Studios, a studio built for Luke’s father Mike Oldfield which specializes in vintage recording equipment including analogue tape machines, with some additional help from Rachel Lansky on viola and Matt Weeks on trumpet, and it was hailed for its originality on release in 2014.

 

“One of the finest albums I have heard all year” 9.8/10 – Music Musings & Such

“A record with a freewheeling spirit, full of gentle persuasion and wonder” 4 stars” – God is in The TV

 

When they felt ready to go on the road, Victoria and Luke decided to augment their sound with Patrick Kenneally (Lords of Thyme), who can play keyboards and drums at the same time, and bassist Tali Trow (ex-Circulus) and now perform live as a multi-instrumental quartet with Victoria on piano, French horn, guitars and vocals and Luke on guitars and vocals.

 

Gypsyfingers opened for James Blunt in Warsaw in 2014 and followed it up with a three-week tour of Poland the following year. Now, having won plaudits from the press for their support slot on the Tubular Bells For Two tour last year, they are ready to strike out on their own headline shows and they have also recently been added to the bills of the Isle of Wight Festival (23rd June) and Hyde Park BST (13th July). It looks like Gypsyfingers’ journey is only just beginning and their subtle yet curiously seductive folk-rock sound is bound to win them new fans wherever they go!
