The Gorms play mostly traditional scottish folk music in their own distinctive way. An element of humour usually runs through their marathon performances, which run the gamut from soft and wistful to (more often) very rowdy indeed.
Synaesthesia inspired, female fronted, Old Bohemia are Otis Ebenhardt and Marie Laveau.
They play music that sounds like an angry Nina Simone got lost in time and grewa up in the angst of the 90's grunge scene.
Their debut EP, Epoch, was well received, selling out on the day of its launch. Tracks made there way to radio stations up and down the country and could be heard on BBC radio 1 and Tom Robinsons BBC Introducing Mixtape.
Old Bohemia established themselves as festival veterans, playing a sold out show at the
Great Alternative Escape, a headline show on the Forrest Stage of Edinburgh Meadows Festival and a closing Saturday night slot at Wickerman festival's Acoustic Village.
They were also heard at Eden festival and Kelburn garden party, Solfest and a whole heap more.
Their second EP 'Astral Giants' dropped on the 8th of July 16 and was performed at their headline show on the acoustic stage Butefest 2016. They also finished by providing the soundtrack to, arguably one of the weekends most memorable moments, the circus fire show finale.
The EP's departure from their acoustic sound was inspired Marie Laveau's synaesthesia, the ability to see colour in sound and was produced, performed and recorded by Old Bohemia. The band completed their first UK headline tour in September 2016, covering over 3,500 miles.
Old Bohemia release their single 'Broken Machine' on the 20th of April 2017 before they embark on their first European tour in collaboration with Sofar sounds in anticipation of their new record at the end of the summer.
