Guest Singer

Guest Singer appearing at this event

Guest Singer is a project devised by Doncaster’s Jake Cope and comprising Paul Burdett and France Lahmar. Fixated with the presentation of the self in everyday life, Cope constructs dark party songs; anti-motivational anthems for the post-truth generation. “People are scared of being bored or being irrelevant.” Cope’s surveillance has been a silent vigil; stationed in a South Yorkshire outpost observing communication media deconstruct experience and distort identity. “Do you live by the words on the backdrop of a well shot holiday hotspot?” he scathingly asks on ‘New Experience’, curtly interrupting the broadcasts of Instagram influencers with a fresh truth. Surrounding himself with the arpeggiated decay of vintage synths, Cope teamed with producer Matt Peel (Eagulls, Pulled Apart By Horses, Menace Beach) to realise a vision that is as rich in its melodic geography as it is pointed in its textural delivery. Capable of moments of incredible grandeur, Cope steers his romantically doomy mentality through a landscape of dusky synth lines and jumpy Will Sergeant-esque guitars.
