“This ain’t like no other song you’ve heard today.” Emily Capell’s lyric on her track, ‘Bombs to the Beatles’, is the perfect summary of her debut album, “Combat Frock.” (Releasing 5th Oct 2019) North West Londoner Emily Capell creatively fuses together highlights of pop, punk, blues & Indie, presenting the perfect image of a young British Mod. Following in the footsteps of Lilly Allen and Kate Nash, Emily Capell demonstrates what it means to be quintessentially British standing out as a unique musical talent in the thriving hotbed of the UK music scene.
To celebrate the release of, ‘Combat Frock,’ Emily will be bringing the magic of the album to life at The Camden Assembly on Saturday 5th October, she’ll then head out on tour with 2 Tone Ska Revival legends, The Selecter in November.
Incorporating sounds of noughties’ indie rock bands like Arctic Monkeys and The Libertines, the ska revival sounds of the late seventies from artists such as The Specials & The Clash and evident inspiration from the rock ‘n’ roll sounds of Marty Wilde in the late fifties, Combat Frock manages to embrace all the major elements of British musical history. Setting a light 1950s’ vintage theme, Emily tantalises the listener with infectious, up beat and feel-good tracks such as, ‘Ispo Calypso’, and, ‘Bonanza’, that are just too irresistible to not dance to.
Emily Capell’s musical prowess on stage has been steadily growing over the last few years with performances at Glastonbury, Latitude, Secret Garden Party, Beautiful Days and many more. She started out 2 years ago with a Jack FM stage slot at Cornbury Festival and was then spotted and adored by the promoter so she was invited back for a main stage performance the following year. She also won Best Newcomer at the 2018 Boisdale Music Awards, hosted by Jools Holland and supported The Spitfires on tour. Furthermore, Emily has performed live on Gaby Roslin and Robert Elms’ BBC London shows as well as monthly residencies at Proud Galleries and the Dublin Castle in Camden Town. She’s had support & plays on X Radio, 6 Music, Amazing Radio, Union Jack & Shoreditch Radio and can count celebrities such as actor Matt Horne (Gavin & Stacey and The Catherine Tate Show) and ex-QPR premier league footballer Joey Barton among her fan base.
