Farewell J.R - Night Wolves

So not only does Farewell J.R have a name (Nick Rayner, if you must) but he has a debut EP ready. Health is out March 11th, the first release on Talking Shop Records via digital and limited edition 12". The slow, (un)steady build from airy/echoey elegance to crashing while still serene at heart chamber grandiosity still recalls For Emma Forever Ago, or at least its evolved live band incarnation, an emotive heft inherent in the chiming guitar and Rayner's pained sense of loss. One live date has been announced, St Pancras Old Church on March 21st. It'll be fascinating to see how it transfers.
