We are delighted to announce the release of Afterglow, the new album from Jon Boden.
Having sold over a quarter of a million records as lead singer with folk super group Bellowhead, Jon now embarks on a solo career. Afterglow, performed live November 2017 with his 10 piece band follows on from Boden's 2009 post-apocalyptic concept-album masterpiece ‘Songs From The Floodplain’. Whereas Floodplain was largely rural in setting, Afterglow plunges the listener into the heaving chaos of a dystopian street carnival, an Orwellian mashup of Bonfire Night and Diwali. Through his unique songwriting Boden tells the story of two star-crossed lovers trying to find each other amongst a backdrop of decaying buildings, burning oil drums, home-made fireworks, tribal rioting and Bacchanalian revelry.
