On the face of it, Evangeline Ling - a 21-year-old art student and musician from Wimbledon - and David Wrench - one of the most in demand mixers and producers in modern music – might seem an unlikely pairing. Yet a chance encounter at a mutual friend’s party just one week after David had moved south to the capital very quickly led to an experimental studio session that’s been going on ever since. Late 2018 saw The Audiobooks release their debut album and with a fresh approach it garnered a powerful response within press from the likes of Q, Mojo, The Times and a six page spread and interview in Yes& No magazine, this momentum has propelled them to radio, where they have been played nationwide on BBC 6 Music, Radio X, Radio 1 with Lauren Laverne of 6 Music tipping the duo as her big thing of 2019.
The London based duo have developed a unique ability to conjure up magical aural snapshots. A band that takes its cues from the King of Pop and The Antichrist Super-star, creates music in daily automatic writing sessions and rides the neon ley lines that connect the North Wales coast to the psycho-bustle of afterhours London are clearly on a very singular path to greatness – a path they’re already someway down, having taken their first footsteps out of the studio and onto the stage for a handful of truly mesmerizing live shows.
