Old Bohemia Short Info

Bio

Synaesthesia inspired, female fronted, Scottish based act, Old Bohemia
formed in 2015 around the talents of Otis Ebenhardt and Marie Laveau.
The bands blend of hard hitting soul, cinematic pop and heart felt folk have drawn comparisons to Alabama Shakes, Black keys, Bon Iver and even Lana Del Ray.

The band released their first EP 'Epoch' as a 'hit the switch and play' recording to capture
the intensity of their live show,† It was recorded in Sound Glasgow studios by head engineer
Al Wright and was mixed an mastered in Abbey road studio by Miles Showell, who has mastered tracks for Ed Sheeran, Iggy Azalea and Portishead.
Their EP sold out in one day, at their sold out King tuts E.P launch, with copies being sent across
four continents.
Their debut E.P'S success saw them being one of the few Scottish acts to play
a part in The great Alternative Escape festival, with a sold out headline show;

Closing Saturday night at the acoustic village at Wickerman festival was to follow as well as headlining the Forest stage at Meadows festival, a late night slot at Eden festival as well as shows at Kelburn festival, King tuts Summer nights festival and Glachbeg farm.
Their festival season unwound with a 15 date tour taking them across the country before the duo holed up to begin work on their upcoming EP;

Their second EP 'Astral Giants' dropped on the 8th of July 16 and was performed live for the first time at their Headline show on the acoustic stage Butefest 2016. Their single headline slot turned into four shows across the weekend due to popular demand and climaxed in a forty minute improvised accompaniment of the weekends fire show circus finale.

The EP's departure from their acoustic sound has drawn comparisons to 'Bats for lashes', 'Daughter' and fellow Scots 'Laura St.Jude'. 'Astral Giants' introduces the duos love of sonic bloom into their music with Marie Laveau's synaesthesic ability to see colour in sound being one of the strongest influences in the production process. Their new EP has seen them invited to headline a stage at Butefest 2016 and Solfest 2016.

The EP deals with themes of the uncertainty and unpredictability of life in your early
twenties and is earnestly autobiographical, dealing with anxiety, social anxiety and the desire
to find meaningful happiness in the social media age.
