Cobalt Chapel was formed in late 2014 by London based vocalist and actress Cecilia Fage (Matt Berry & The Maypoles) and Sheffield based musician Jarrod Gosling (I Monster and Regal Worm). Following the recording of their debut album they were asked by Andy Votel to play their first show at this year's Festival No 6. The sounds and textures on this debut are captivating and atmospheric, conjured up from vintage organs and effects, vintage drums and drum machines, fused together with Cecilia's distinctive English lead and layered vocals. The album explores imagined scenarios, finding inspiration in folklore, 1960's and 70's science fiction and horror ('Black Eyes' tells the story from the point of view of a 'Stepford wife' in the original film) as well as personal experience.
