Feathered Thorns

Feathered Thorns

13th April 2023

The Feathered Thorns are Polly Wright and Jason Wick, who are based in the Waveney Valley on the Norfolk-Suffolk border. They are frequent collaborators on a diverse range of commissioned work for theatre, poetry, dance, film and installation.

Lyrical spoken word and vulnerable melodic vocals duet, over broken chord parlour piano, valve driven guitar amplifiers on the verge of break up, spring reverbs and analogue effects to produce an authentic raw tonal palette over a haunting collage of lo- fi soundscapes conjuring lonely houses, folkloric figures, frozen marshlands and desolate country lanes. Melancholy, tenderness and menace meet the real or imagined, the ache of the familiar and the brooding thrill of the unknown. These are songs deeply rooted in the belly of the Waveney Valley, the area which John Peel famously described as the ‘Badlands of the Norfolk-Suffolk border.’
