Night River Presents:

Alex Rex

“Superb” The Times

“Gothic pop noir reminiscent of Nick Cave” Q Magazine “Irreverent and playful” MOJO “An utterly distinctive, mental world.” The Financial Times “A buoyancy to the most lacerating lines, a liberating relief in pressing on” Uncut “From keening ballads to haunting waltzes, Paradise has never seemed stranger” Shindig

Singing drummers may now be in vogue, but very few combine the masterful musicianship, vivid lyrics and expressive vocals one experiences with Alex Rex. In fact, few musicians have a CV as impressive as band leader Alex Neilson. He’s drummed with some of the most eclectic musicians of the international underground; from Bonnie “Prince” Billy to Shirley Collins, Jandek and Current 93. All on top of a 10-year stint with his own critically acclaimed psych-folk outfit, Trembling Bells. Don’t miss his first ever stop in Frome at the brand new Tree House venue.

Support from: Mighty One

“Something truly inspiring” BBC Introducing

Mighty One are an exciting new band from Bruton. The group evolved into a live band in 2021, with gorgeous vocals, driving drum beats, textured shoegaze, glitchy guitars and a large dose of keys, brass and orchestration. For fans of Sharon Van Etten, The National and Sigur Ros.
