- Buy Tickets
Molly Linen is a Shropshire-born, Glasgow-based songwriter and guitarist. Her beguiling voice is both emotive yet serene recalling the dulcet whispered tones of Cat Power, layered upon melodic guitar lines which draw influence from artist such as Devon Sproule and Nick Drake.
The EP ‘Outside’ follows the release of Linen’s wonderfully received debut single ‘Away’ (May 2019), which was described as “remarkably mature, so beautifully focused, and so frightfully exciting” by influential blog For The Rabbits, with radio play from the likes of BBC 6Music (Gideon Coe) and BBC Radio Scotland (Vic Galloway and Roddy Hart).
Beginning life as the bedroom project of multi-disciplinary artist Leo Robinson – a specialist in the kind of hushed, evocative recordings which bring to mind the intimacy of well-loved acts like The Microphones and Thanksgiving – Cult Party has quickly blossomed into one of the most respected bands working out of Manchester. Leo’s baritone croon intones a sequence of emotionally expressive lyrics, veering from free-associative poetry to intimate confessionals.
