Tale of Two

Introducing "Tale of Two", a song writing duo comprised of Alfie Jackson (ex Holloways frontman turned songwriter/producer) and singer songwriter and performer Gemma Rogers.
Mixing dark folk with lyrics from the shadows, and music that ebbs and flows through very murky waters,
‘Lovelust’ is the 3rd single taken from their forthcoming EP which is due for release mid 2019. Lovelust is a cautionary song warning us not to choose lust over love. It laments through the foreboding future likely to plague the path one is tempted to slither down. Singing to each other, man and woman - the perspectives of two tempted souls who already have lovers are thrown back and forth discussing the drunken allure of something new, short and potent at the risk of what is old, long and lasting. The song calls upon classical melodies and moves from the dark and sinister to the hope of love.
Alfie and Gemma met while playing on the same bill together and immediately knew they wanted to work together. Writing songs remotely (Alfie lives in Austria) they recently racked up more than 20,000 plays in just two weeks on their first collaboration for Gemma's solo project (single ‘Stop’ was released in August). With no conscious influences to speak of, as Alfie puts it “we just sat down and wrote some songs”
