Lockdown Jukebox #4 : 9Bach : Live Stream : 7.00pm, Thursdays
This week's Lockdown Jukebox is a live stream to look out for from Bethesda's post-folk wonders, 9Bach. The award-winning band play an acoustic set on their Facebook page at 7pm each Thursday. Full details can be found here.
9Bach also have a live album out in July; a single from it, Yr Olaf, wwas released on Friday, 24th April. The track was recorded on the band's October 2019 tour. Underpinned by a slow, visceral bass heart-beat, the single captures the sculptural, mesmeric beauty 9Bach can project from a stage.
Yr Olaf originally featured on the 2016 studio album Anian. The music has a sense of foreboding to it - the song's lyric was inspired by a picture of the last male white rhino in Sudan, with Lisa Jên singing from the perspective of a poacher.
The forthcoming album will present 9Bach in their full electronic glory, on Thursdays each week there is a rare glimpse of the band returning to their early acoustic roots.
