Press Release – April 2016
After a two-year break, Acoustic Earth returns with their brilliant new EPÂ Amen. Developing the pop/singer-songwriter style first heard on 2013â€™sÂ Head Over Heels EP, songwriter Pete Walton and vocalist, Olivier AwardÂ winning actress Lorna Want, draw their references from influences asÂ diverse as George Ezra, Carly Rae Jepsen and Angus and Julia Stone.Â The feel-good summertime pop of Amen and the hands-in-the-air anthemÂ I Will Be, show Lorna and the band pushing their pop credentials inÂ songs that will be nagging at you long after youâ€™ve played the EP. In theÂ past, Acoustic Earth have been involved in classical projects (SlowÂ Motion Sleeper) and world music (2010â€™s Travelling Man), but the AmenÂ EP is pure pop; catchy, tuneful and full of delicate touches than revealÂ themselves on repeated listening. The track Amen has been steadilyÂ building fans on Soundcloud and Internet radio and the video for AmenÂ looks set to build the Acoustic Earth fan base further.
