Bodys presents the return of two favourite acts from last year as part of Wakefield's wonderful Long Division Festival.

8.30pm Faith Eliott
Faith Eliott (who uses the pronouns they and them) is a songwriter and visual artist currently based in Glasgow. They grew up in Minneapolis and relocated with their family to Scotland aged 13. Faith’s debut LP ‘Impossible Bodies’ was released last year on OK Pal Records. The record was in part inspired by Faith’s interest in medieval bestiaries, illustrated compendiums of animals. Impossible Bodies’ is based on the same framework, with each song represented by a different creature. These stories are set to an atmospheric mix of finger-picking guitar, strings, electric guitar and percussion. Sometimes swirling and aquatic, sometimes doomy, and sometimes more patently ‘folk’. ‘Impossible Bodies’ was received to critical acclaim and broadcast on BBC Radio 3, 4, and 6Music.

9.15pm The Golden Age of TV
The Golden Age of TV are an indie art-rock quintet from Leeds whose debut, much anticipated EP was released on 13th March 2020. Their whip-smart drums lock in with gloriously fuzzed out glam bass and disconcertingly swirling guitars bounce around your ears. Singer Bea's vocals and stage presence are outstanding.
