Following on from the 2021 release of their acclaimed second studio album More Notes From The Field through Polyphonic Life Records, Jacob & Drinkwater are releasing their latest single New Capri – recorded during the More Notes … album sessions. The sonically rich track features some of the duo’s trademark lyrical nostalgia, with a wistful chorus refrain asking the listener to ‘not let life pass you by’.
More Notes From The Field is the follow up to their 2019 debut album This Old River, and was written remotely between the pair’s respective homes in Poland and Stroud during lockdown. The new album centres around themes of friendship and human connection alongside some of the back catalogue of songs the duo are known for, continuing the threads of mysticism, nature imagery and history that also run through their debut. The album’s sonic landscape has broadened from the core sound of fingerpicked guitar, upright bass and rich harmonies to include captivating arrangements utilising drums, synths, piano and electric guitar.
The duo is made up of singer-songwriter Tobias ben Jacob: known for his work in The Roots Union and two acclaimed solo albums, and multi-instrumentalist, producer and session musician Lukas Drinkwater: known for his collaborations with artists including Emily Barker, Frank Turner, Seth Lakeman, Will Varley, Tankus the Henge, Marry Waterson & 3 Daft Monkeys. The pair first collaborated together on stage at Glastonbury in 2014 and have gone on, over the course of an album, live record and EP, to become one of British folk’s brightest and most exciting acts.
