About Horsebeach

Manchester's Horsebeach came into being after Ryan Kennedy took annual leave from his day job at Piccadilly Records to focus on his own melodic, dreamy guitar pop. The fruit of those two weeks of labor became Horsebeach's 2014 self-titled debut, which was recorded straight to tape in Kennedy's Manchester flat. Keen to take the record on the road, the multi-instrumentalist and producer formed a band that included Tom Critchley on bass, Tom Featherstone on guitar, and longtime friend Matt Booth on backing vocals and drums in addition to his own lead vocals and guitar. Off the back of their debut, which recalled the indie guitar jangle of the C-86 scene, they were invited to play Primavera's winter festival, Club Primavera, in Barcelona. The band released their follow-up II in 2015, and it featured both an X-Files-inspired song in "Dana," and lusher, more expansive production than their debut. All Horsebeach's recordings were released through their own imprint Alone Together, and this trend continued on their third outing, 2017's Beauty & Sadness. They went on to announce a U.K. tour in support of the record that also included a spot on the Blue Dot Festival bill. ~ Bekki Bemrose
