‰Û÷British Road Movies‰۪ is the long awaited debut solo album from Kate Jackson, former frontwoman of The Long Blondes. Co-written and produced by Bernard Butler (Suede, The Tears), ‰Û÷British Road Movies‰۪ is a cinematic, eclectic and beautiful record.
Synth driven glam rock, ‰Û÷Blade Runner‰۪ electronica, faded piano allure and sweeping Bond style string sections are topped with Jackson‰۪s unique vocal style and Butler‰۪s instantly recognisable guitar sound.
These are big, melodic, alternative pop songs with Butler‰۪s production perfectly complementing the narrative of the record.
A shared love of Bowie, Eno, The Fall, Shocking Blue and Neil Young filters seamlessly into these recordings which sound both modern and timeless.
‰Û÷British Road Movies‰۪ establishes Jackson as a solo artist and songwriter akin to the likes of Jane Weaver, Nadine Shah and Gwenno.
Jackson‰۪s Brutalist paintings adorn the album sleeve.
LP includes a digital download code.
