Meet the Band
We are Autoheart...
AUTOHEART ARE SINGER JODY GADSDEN, SIMON NEILSON ON KEYS AND BARNEY JC ON GUITARS
Having bonded over a shared love of 70’s folk singers, 80’s chart synth pop and 90’s torch song balladeers, their first single 'The Sailor Song' quickly caught the attention of DJs Marc Radcliffe and Stuart Maconie, who invited the band to perform live on their Radio 2 show. The 200,000 plus views that song has now had on YouTube was followed by a critically acclaimed debut album, ‘Punch’, and a live residency at the Lexington where they co-starred with other breakthrough acts including Bright Light Bright Light, Fiona Bevan and Black Gold Buffalo. Offbeat love-song Moscow gained the attention of Stephen Fry for its proud message of support to the Russian LGBT community - and quickly gained more than 150,000 YouTube views.
In May 2014, the band released ‘DEMOS’ - a collection of unreleased b-sides and rarities, and then headed back into the studio to write and produce a worthy follow-up. ‘I Can Build a Fire’ is the much anticipated result.
