THE CATENARY WIRES were formed in 2014 when Amelia and Rob (ex-Talulah Gosh, Heavenly, Marine Research, Tender Trap) moved out of London.
Unlike some of their earlier incarnations, THE CATENARY WIRES are minimalist, melancholy, and a little woozy.
Originally forming the band just for themselves at home, Rob and Amelia started playing songs on their daughter’s 3/4 size acoustic guitar. They are still refusing to give it back.
The band agreed to play a first gig in public at the Arnolfini in Bristol, on 3 May 2014, in support of a new film about Sarah Records. Since then, they have played several shows around the UK, and will soon be performing in Tokyo, Madrid and New York.
THE CATENARY WIRES function as a simple two-piece live, but have created a lusher sound on their first album, Red Red Skies, to be released by Elefant Records in June 2015.
