Lots has been going on since the last update - Belper Goes Green, Studio time and a forward look at this year’s Oxjam Beeston Takeover!
Belper Goes Green
The Belper Goes Green festival ran over the 1st and 2nd June 2019 on the Belper Rugby Club ground in the small Derbyshire town, just a 30-minute drive up the A6 from Derby itself. It’s a fantastic event, focussing on renewable energy, climate change and the future protection of our planet. It also boasts 2 separate music stages, covering all manner of musical genre and styles. So, it was the perfect venue for Anteloup to join in and grace the crowds with their cross-genre approach to playing the stuff they like. A cracking mix of songs were performed, including old favourites like A Little Bit Like Kiss Me, to brand new material such as Little By Little. The weather threw everything it had at the festival and the tent was rammed, initially with folk trying to find shelter, but then by a wonderfully appreciative crowd who bobbed, clapped and danced throughout the set. The band were still buzzing the following Tuesday at their practice and are really looking forward to playing the event again. Luckily, Andy Sutton and Chris Martin were on hand to take some snaps and you can view them right here.
Anteloup In The Studio
JT Soar Studios are a well established studio in Nottingham, who have had quite a number of established acts through their doors, including Sleaford Mods, Rattle and The Merryn Ashwell Quintet. Now they can add Anteloup to that list as the guys are in the process of recording their first 2 studio tracks there.
A day was spent laying down most of the songs, with just some finishing touches to be provided by Pete and Luis. The band have already had a sneak preview rough mix of the tracks so far and they’re sounding pretty damned good! Keep you eyes out for official releases before the end of the Summer.
Oxjam Beeston Takeover
Saturday 19th October is the Oxjam Beeston Takeover; an event that the whole band really look forward to. Not only just to play, but also to check out the staggering amount of local music talent who turn out to provide 12 hours of fantastic, top-quality non-stop music.
Anteloup are confirmed as playing and venue details will be provided as soon as the band have confirmation.
