"...otherworldy, haunting, widescreen musicality...stirs up feelings of darkly evocative, timelessness." EQ Music Blog
SpaceAcre makes music that is so boundless and evocative that it’ll leave you crying on the train as you stare out of the window, transported into the lead role of your own tragic melodrama. You’re in slow motion, hair blowing in the breeze, moving towards a shadowy destination with a sense of longing, on the edge an elaborate subplot that’s unraveling itself in the mist.
In a collision of opposing musical forces, a sort of controlled chaos, Phoebe Little and Jas Scott forge something that’s alive with fire in its belly. Amid heavy drums, menacing grooves, and epic cinematic strings, haunting melodies are made almost tangible by Phoebe’s spine-tingling vocals and the pair’s devastating yet resonant lyrics.
SpaceAcre’s formation was something of a happy accident. The two met after Phoebe was introduced to Jas while working on another musical project. There was an instant chemistry and they fell into writing songs together, a partnership that led them to a songwriting camp in Normandy, France. “While we were there we worked in a completely different way,” Phoebe recalls. “We came out with this new sound and it didn’t feel like the project we were meant to be writing for at all.”
In the middle of the channel, on the ferry journey back to the UK, Phoebe made a brave proposal - asking Jas if she wanted to start a new band together. Though the anxious voice inside Jas’ head was screaming “no”, she surprised herself by saying “yes” out loud. And so SpaceAcre was born.
