Robin Jax’s exploits as RobinPlaysChords have been built on a slow but steady sonic development. Building on the release of 2014's Teardrop Girl-Star EP, 2017's Teardrop Girl-Star LP - which was recorded in studios in the UK and Ukraine - was the culmination of six years of fine tuning a remarkably focused sound.
Gentle shimmering textures and jagged distortion embrace each other warmly. Robin sings words that beckon you closer, to come forward across seemingly impassable distances. Garnering comparisons to David Bowie and Patrick Wolf, RobinPlaysChords has previously opened for the likes of The Irrepressibles, Thomas Truax and Larsen, as well as appearing at Tramlines Festival and touring mainland Europe.
