This week we feature the Berlin-based band Lapwings, with musicians stemming from different walks of life, they derive their name from the folkloric bird of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs representing newcomers to a – for them – foreign land.
The international band began as Jeal, lead singer songwriter, cut his ties with the corporate world in 2013 and left his home in Belgium to give into his musical ambitions. After meeting and playing with cellist Natasha Jaffe the match was lit, that would later light the fire for establishing Lapwing’s unique organic sound and the band itself in 2015
We’ve taken a track from their debut EP Frozen time as this weeks Xtra Fresh, the song is called “Love Blinkers” but should we play it on Radio X? You decide . . . . . . . . .
