Ex-Bellowhead frontman’s new musical directions
Jon Boden’s new musical boundaries post-Bellowhead continue to inspire and intrigue. His Remnant Kings is another all-star folk collective containing some familiar names, but as their Autumn 2017 release Afterglow proves, it’s cut from a very different cloth. Hailed as ‘ambitious, genre- busting folk’ by The Guardian and drawing comparisons to Gabriel-era Genesis, Kate Bush and David Bowie, it’s a miraculous alchemy of Boden’s irrepressible charisma, prog-rock, pop and folk and a testament to the prodigious imagination of a prolific song-writer clearly at the very top of his game.
