Signed to Lucy Rose’s Real Kind Records, ‘Moth To A Flame’, is Memorial’s first single. Lucy co-produced it with her long-time collaborator Tim Bidwell. It’s her first output swivelling in the chair behind the glass, heralding a fine meeting of similar minds.
Memorial are a duo, Jack and Ollie. Neither are in any great hurry, with their songwriting process originally found spent solo, several hundred miles apart in Brighton and Manchester. Voice memos zipped across the internet, all half thoughts and feelings seeking the other’s encouragement. Moth To A Flame is the first song they finished together, and it set the tone for what they started working on next. A barometer to judge the rest of their introductory output by.
It’s a career not even one song deep, but already they’ve got Lucy batting for their side, US alt.country queen Courtney Marie Andrews offering them tour support, and bags of enthusiasm between them all suggesting that, just maybe they’re on to something here.
