One of the country’s most underrated singer-songwriters, John Bramwell, announces the first single, ‘A World Full Of Flowers’, from his remarkable new album The Light Fantastic, out February 23rd via Townsend Music.

‘A World Full Of Flowers’ veers away from the darker sound that he is most synonymous with I Am Kloot. With its joyous feel and almost Beatles-esque air, the track is full of lush melodic vocal harmonies over a Beck-sounding syncopated drum loop, atmospheric Fleet Foxes soundscapes and hand claps. It’s a welcome return and one that offers a glimpse into John’s new material, which, as he puts it himself, “are the most uplifting songs of my career”.

Anyone who has heard John’s work with seminal Manchester band I Am Kloot will be cheered by the news of this impending release. Nominated for a Mercury Prize in 2010 for their acclaimed Sky At Night album, I Am Kloot never quite received the widespread success their music deserved.

This new album is a masterclass in emotionally charged and melodically driven tunes for the adventurous. John wrote all 12 tracks except for ‘Nobody Left But You’, which he co-wrote with album producer Dave Fidler.

“After both my Mum and Dad died, I started writing these songs to cheer myself up,” John admits with typical candour. “The themes are taken from my dreams at the time. Wake up and take whatever impression I had from what I could remember of my dream and write that.”

Despite the sentiment, the songs are surprisingly uplifting. And will no doubt sound great live.

Kicking off with three dates at London’s St Pancras Old Church in February, John Bramwell will play the following shows. Tickets are on sale now.
