about

The roots of the Nightjar encompass a past in electronics, phonography and traditional musics, as well as multi-platform engagements with contemporary urban cultures and communities. After years of busking, folk sessions, gigs large and small and spontaneous live experiments around the UK, Alice Kirby and Pete Thomas finally sat down in 2013 to record the preceding years. The results were taken by Pete and James Cameron, a South London producer, and crafted into something else entirely. The first of these tracks are available on The Nightjar EP, out in January.
