Structured chaos- perhaps the most fail-safe description of the ins and outs of being an artist. Between the peculiar highs and all too relatable lows, chaos follows art like houses in motion; all lofty ambitions, and fast-paced progress. For Brighton’s Porchlight, chaos, and the art of being a band, in all its complex commodities, is nothing more than mere childsplay, in the grand scheme of lawless artistry.

Formed of lead vocalist Sam Crees, bassist Oli Port, guitarists Hodges and Coram, and Harry Geal on drums, Porchlight are a charismatic hybrid who, off the back of a handful of singles and rabid word-of-mouth, are fast becoming one of the most beguiling acts to watch this side of the Atlantic.

Tried and tested through a myriad of notorious live-shows, which saw the group establish an ever-growing fanbase throughout the UK and EU, the five tracks that would eventually go on to form ‘Wives Tales and Hymns of the Earth’, Porchlight’s debut EP, are a symbolic mis-mash of heart-on-sleeve musicianship and delightfully raucous lyricism.

Loosely inspired by tales of small-town rural England- cottage villages with dark exteriors, ‘Wives Tales and Hymns of the Earth’ as a whole, is the outcome of five individual tales coming together to form a conceptually emphasised entity to end all conceptually emphasised entities. Completed by the poetic brood of ‘Blue Chalk’, the jagged anxieties of ‘Spin Doctor’ and Porchlight aficionado familiarities of opening track ‘From Monday’, in just short of twenty minutes ‘Wives Tales and Hymns of the Earth’ perfectly captures the sweeping emotions of a debut; a soul-stirring, ear-pounding documentation of a group taking their first steps into a whole new unknown of their own fine-crafted design.
