Story Books are probably best known by their 2012 single ‘Peregrine’ that was BBC Introducing’s tip of the week, and features singer Kristofer Harris singing gloomily on a train track. Gloominess aside, the band write songs that are anthemic but not at the cost of intelligent songwriting, and all are as touching and texturally satisfying as the next. Here’s the video for new single ‘Simple Kids’:
The band have supported acts like Bloc Party and most recently King Charles, so it will be refreshing to see them within the intimacy of the (new to 2013’s D2D) downstairs stage at The Bodega.
The band will be on at 20.30 at Dot to Dot Festival Nottingham, 26/05/13
Dot to Dot tickets available here.
