Discovery: Stables

Bossa Nova Hangover is the new single from British indie folk duo Stables and it’s definitely one that will ease a sore head.

By Graeme Smith

With a gently plucked, echoing guitar melody, soft percussion and reassuringly smooth vocals, there’s a class feel to Bossa Nova Hangover. There’s also a story to the lyrics, hinting at a nostalgic sadness and a philosophical acceptance.

Stables are London-based Matthew Lowe and Daniel Trenholme. Formed in 2015, they’ve caught the attention of BBC 6 Music DJ Steve Lamacq, Tom Robinson and the legendary Bob Harris, among others. They’ve released two albums and are in the process of releasing twelve singles in as many months.
