23rd July | SWX
Jenny Lewis has quite literally got everything under her belt: roles in films as a young child actress, a hefty back catalogue of albums from her various projects, including indie-rock band from the early millennium, Rilo Kiley, and let’s not forget about her short-lived project, Nice As Fuck. Although their time on this planet was brief, their sole album tells a different story – seductive and ambient hits which are best served with a sunset. It’s rare that Jenny Lewis tours the UK, let alone plays a show right on our doorstep, but to add to her ever-growing tally of belt notches she’s got a show at SWX to shout about.
Lewis released her fourth studio album, On The Line earlier this year. It was a somewhat new-age meets country affair, with single ‘Red Bull and Hennessy’ sounding like a Fleetwood Mac bootleg. ‘Do Di So’, on the other hand, is an epic exploration of space – grand synths and a groovy backbeat, all topped off with Beck’s backing vocals and immense production. I look forward to seeing her new material in the flesh (along with all her great stage costumes, of course).
Support will be coming from Dublin-based Slow Moving Clouds which I am so flipping excited for, fusing traditional Irish folk with rich string sections and soaring vocals. This night’ll be one to give you goosebumps at SWX next Tuesday.
