"...otherworldy, haunting, widescreen musicality...stirs up feelings of darkly evocative, timelessness." EQ Music Blog
SpaceAcre are a British Alt-Pop duo formed by complete accident in mid 2019 while its members, Phoebe Little (lead vocals, guitar, keys) and Jas Scott (vocals, bass, synths, cello), were at a writing camp in Normandy. Producer, James Sanger (Brian Eno, The Cure) arranged the collaboration after he was sent a recording of Phoebe’s voice by a friend. Scott’s obsession with electronica, cinematic music and unusual time signatures combined with Little’s love of strong melodies, introspective lyrics and story-telling come together to form an unlikely synthesis.
The pair have an unusual approach to songwriting, often starting with an obscure string loop of Jas’ creation and together writing the song in response to it. With influences ranging from Goldfrapp, Little Dragon and Jeff Buckley to The Weepies, their sound is a blend of strings, driving riffs, layers of synths and electronic beats contrasted with pure vocals, strong melodies and close harmonies. Phoebe's voice effortlessly switches between moments of gutsy abandon and heart wrenching vulnerability.
