Divine Schism: Anrimeal + Salvation Bill + Richard Lewis

05/02/2022

19:30

Stoked to be bringing anrimeal to Oxford for the first time with our super pal Salvation bill supporting and playing their first show in Oxford for a few years and with a full band too! Divine Schism is releasing Salvation Bill’s new album Has Had It’ next month and please treat this as an album launch show! Opening up is brand new Oxford band Richard Lewis who have sent us their lo-fi demo and we love it!

Anrimeal is the recording project of Ana Rita de Melo Alves; singer, songwriter, producer, poet, conjuror, clodhopper and cherub. Hailing from Porto, Ana creates and manipulates digital folk song from her current base in south London, drawing on the post-minimalist principles of texture, limitation and repetition. Lately, she can be found composing around the sound of creaking doors, percolating coffee and whispering toothbrushes, seeking and finding the magic in the domestic and humanity in the inanimate.

Ana's debut album Could Divine was released in November 2020, to widespread perked ears from the likes of BBC Radio 6music, BBC Radio 3's Late Junction, The Wire and Electronic Sound. Her latest project (Could Divine, Remembered) is a reimagined, deconstructed companion piece to Could Divine, featuring remixes and reflections spun together with previously unreleased material.

Salvation Bill has only just started recovering from back to back colds since starting his job as a primary school teacher. This breathing space has allowed him to release some more music. If you like a good story then it’s just possible you will like his lyrics. His song themes tend to include: the constant threat of death, money problems, tales of woe and some occasional stirred in schmaltz. He was chosen for the Independent Venue Week showcase by Colin Greenwood along with Glass Animals, played Truck Festival, opened the main stage of Wilderness Festival, and supported Gaz Combes at the O2 in Oxford. 'Has Had It' is his new album, and first since 2017's 'Fat Fate's Formal Handshake'.
