At 2000 Trees festival this weekend, I witnessed the death of Jim Lockey and The Solemn Sun. Don't panic - it wasn't literally. But pulling off a packed out secret set in the forest at 7, Lockey played an acoustic set which officially retired a wealth of brilliant indie folk, paving the way for a new outfit which drops his name and aims for Brand New-worthy emo-epics. The first offering is 'Josef', a bold statement of intent which indicates some pretty exciting things to come. We love.
