“Simply put, this is a stunning piece of work. Spacebound Apes is one of 2016’s miss-this-at-your-peril LPs. They have also developed into one of the world’s best live acts” – [ Drowned in Sound 9/10 ]
Widely acclaimed as a composer of dynamic, cinematic music and having “genuine vision” (The Sunday Times), pianist Neil Cowley presents his latest creation, a bold exercise in atmosphere and emotion; an ambitious multi layered outing that’s quite possibly his most musically confident statement to date.
‘Spacebound Apes’ – Cowley’s 6th studio album with his trio – is a concept album; a glorious, hypnotic soundtrack to an out-of-the ordinary, thought-provoking. It’s some of the most impassioned music that Neil has created.
“This is a project ‘I’ve been working towards for a long time” Cowley says. “It takes in themes of guilt, fear, loss and longing with a few twists along the way. It’s been utterly immersive yet incredibly exciting. And yes, I’m not ashamed to say it, it’s a concept album!” He continues, “It sounds a bit cryptic, but hopefully everyone will come along for the ride”.
“…the greatest stadium-filling anthems that Coldplay never wrote.” Uncut
We are thrilled to announce Neil and his modern jazz fuelled compatriots to the Music Hall.
