Press Text
Pavey Ark are an alternative folk band from Hull.

Atmospheric vocals and strings glide over finger-picked guitar, melodic bass and complex percussion. The result is a beautiful cinematic-folk sound that evades immediate comparison. Upon further listening, the band's influences start to reveal themselves. From the laid back 60’s folk of Jack.C.Frank and Rodrigues through to Nick Drake and Radiohead. The band are built around singer-songwriter Neil Thomas, described by UNCUT as "one of the most promising songwriters to emerge from Humberside". Their first ever live performance was for BBC Introducing in Feb 2016. They went on to play Glastonbury Festival just 4 months later. The Unsigned Guide also included the band in their 'Ones To Watch' list with just seven other UK acts.

Their debut album "Close Your Eyes and Think of Nothing” was released in March 2020 just as the Covid lockdowns began. Despite the challenging timing, the album received wonderful reviews from the national music press including UNCUT, Record Collector, Folk Radio and BBC 6 Music airplay form Mark Radcliffe and Chris Hawkins. Previous live bookings include Glastonbury, Cornbury, Bearded Theory, Boomtown Fair and Moseley Folk Festival 2021. The band recently supported This Is The Kit during their autumn 2021 tour. Pavey Ark will be releasing their second album 'More Time, More Speed' in late summer 2022.

UNCUT Magazine “A striking debut”

Folk Radio "Pavey Ark set themselves up as a simple folk band then pull the rug out from under your feet.
It is a perfect antidote for these uncertain days. A call to arms from a band that demands to be heard”

Amazing Radio (Charlie Ashcroft)… "Hull band Pavey Ark return on stupendous form”

The Scottish Express ★★★★
"This set of folk pop, quietly sparkles. Whether it's the dreamy cuckoo, the lovestruck Hidden Hills or the romantic Breaking Out. Best thing to come out of Hull since the Beautiful South”
