“Real aural therapy… wonderful” – Sian Eleri, BBC Radio 1
“A brass-flecked heartbreaker that recalls Simon & Garfunkel and Sufjan Stevens” –Sunday Times Culture
Fast-rising indie-folk duo, Memorial, released their highly-anticipated self-titled debut album in April 2022 through Lucy Rose’s Real Kind Records (Bess Atwell, Samantha Crain), featuring the previously shared offerings ‘Dialtone’, ‘Moth to a Flame’ and ‘Latchkey’, with the latter amassing over two million streams, featured on Spotify’s highly coveted ‘The Most Beautiful Songs in the World’ playlist, and nominated for Song of the Year at the AMA UK Awards. Continuing the same vibrant direction they have showcased thus far, their eponymous full-length LP delivers a wider and more dynamic approach to their flourishing folk-pop aesthetic. Their new collection delves deeper into the pair’s personal connection and experiences, creating a more intimate and honest array throughout. Touring relentlessly since the duo released their first music, they have already toured with and played alongside the likes of Courtney Marie Andrews, Flyte, Sea Power, Anais Mitchell, Richard Thompson, Amber Run, Bess Atwell and completed a very full summer of festivals including Wilderness Festival, Barn on the Farm, Cambridge Folk Festival, Cornbury and as part of Sea Power’s home-grown ‘micro-festival’ Krankenhaus.
Memorial are currently working on their second album.
