Olive Grove Records release new music from Pocket Knife and moonsoup.

Pocket Knife and moonsoup both appear on Volumes 3 & 4  of Olive Grove Records sublime series of Archipelago EPs.

Volume 3 of the double EP release features 5 tracks from Glasgow based slinky upbeat synth duo, Pocket Knife.  This is joyous music with witty and clever lyrics that you can bounce along to.  And dance we did when we caught their near legendary energetic live show at the start of the year.

Pocket Knife is Louise Connor and Michael Nimmo who cite influences as diverse as The Shangri-Las to Shonen Knife and  the duo describe their music as “synth-pop to dance limply to”.

moonsoup is Scottish lo-fi musician Niamh Baker who started writing, recording and releasing her own indie-pop tunes back in 2018.  Following support slots for Randolph’s Leap and RM Hubbert, Baker caught the attention of Olive Grove Records who signed her up to be part of the Archipelago EPs. 

The five tracks on Archipelago Volume 4 are packed with glorious soulful indie melodies weaved with magical storytelling touching on close personal affairs such as her struggles with social anxiety and grief.
