The Brunswick are pleased to welcome London-based psych-pop songwriter JACK CHESHIRE to Hove as part of the tour for his new 'Black Light Theatre' album. Cheshire cites a diverse set of influences for the album’s textures and arrangements, including Can, Grizzly Bear and Television. Yet equally important to him was David Foster Wallace’s dystopian novel Infinite Jest, whose themes of addiction, mental health, drugs and gratification resonated greatly with a songwriter unafraid to experiment: “I try and turn off any filters in my mind and let things out. My songs are about the human condition as it relates to the static in my head.”
"…with his breathy Ian McCulloch-style croon…a burnished psychedelia creeps into the mix and takes this music to the skies."
- Garry Mulholland, Uncut
"… an inspired combination, Cheshire’s precisely enunciated Nick Drake-like vocals and non-rhyming, allusive lyrics in tense and absorbing combat with the band’s expansive sound pictures…An artist crying out for a bigger audience."
- Dan Cairns, The Sunday Times
- Lauren Laverne, BBC 6 Music
"…. a gem of psychedelic English folk… the listener is thrown into an uncertain, disorientating yet mesmerising world created by Cheshire’s lyrics and incredibly gifted band…"
- Renny Jackson, ThankFolkForThat.com 9/10
