Calico – Fold a Winning Hand


Get familiar with Small Pond Recordings-representing artist collective Calico, a Brighton progressive instrumentals quintet who are about to launch their alluring fresh-eclectic-vibe self-titled debut EP on October 19th. The group beautifully blends together a mixture of influences on the EP (from jazz, folk and rock to classical and electronica). We’re into the EP’s debut track “Fold A Winning Hand” for its righteously-creative instrumental sound, somber-playful-dynamic and beautifully-varying jazzy horn-fangled moodscapes. Beautiful vibes. If you agree, check out Calico on tour now starting with this Saturday night at London’s The Islington. Reviewed by Erin Shay.
