May Days in Barcelona Short Info

May Days in Barcelona is primarily the work of multi-instrumentalist Simon Clowes. Having existed as a recording act since 2014 May Days in Barcelona started playing live in late 2015. performing initially at a number of performance art events in Newcastle before setting up base in Sheffield. Simon also works as a string arranger and soundtrack artist on numerous projects.

Live shows are based around Simon using up to 4 loop pedals simultaneously, to create a melodic wall of sound, with violins weaving over fuzzy shoegaze guitars and analogue synths, drawing on elements of Post-Rock, Minimalism and Baroque Pop. With a sound that lands somewhere between Joy Division, Yann Tiersen and Sigur Ros.

May Days In Barcelona is currently recording a debut full length album and a new EP set for release in late 2017.
