August Actually - Lost At Sea

August Actually are a six-piece folk-pop outfit who specialise in songs about seafaring, being as they're from the glorious seaside resort of, um, Nottingham. The amount of melodica and jaunty acousticity may put them squarely in the indiepop bracket - they've supported Darren Hayman and the Wave Pictures and are to play with Standard Fare, Bearsuit and MJ Hibbett in impending weeks and months - but buoyed by an expansive sonic palette that comes of having violin and trumpet playing members (much like old friends and fellow East Midlanders My First Tooth, actually), creating a sweep of folk melody and storytelling, heartaching lyrics. Songs From The Lighthouse EP is out on November 5th.
