When Charlie isn’t touring with Bastille or prog heros Amplifier, he’s quietly nursing his own solo project. 2018 will see new record, Stately Mansions, out on Superball Music – home to And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead, 65daysofstatic and Leicester’s own Maybeshewill. Heavily influenced by the likes of Oceansize, he brands his output as ‘Big Morbid Death Pop’ and it’s an accurate if esoteric description. These are pop songs, but laced through with both beauty and darkness.

Charlie Barnes plays The Cookie on 14th March.

Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Great Central, John has been actively involved in Leicester's creative community for over a decade - promoting shows and releasing records under the name Robot Needs Home. He is a director of Handmade Festival, and ex member of the band Maybeshewill.
