Lake (vocals, acoustic guitar, bass, keyboard), Phil Jones (bass, Bvs, keyboard/computer), Andy Hoy (drums/samples)

We have entitled our music: ‘Future folk’.

Future – because we are in a state of becoming and our music is an aural representation of unrealised dreams.

Folk – because we write simple songs for everyone to play and sing along to.

We’re currently experimenting¬† with ElectricUTOPIA

Manifesto-in-progress: ElectricUTOPIA is an aural representation of unrealised dreams. It’s the soundtrack to the future we forgot – Urbantramper still holds a hope for that future. Utopia, used positively, gives shape to our idealistic musings. It is the northern star that we strive for but cannot, and will not, ever reach. It is this unattainable quality which gives utopia its value a conceptual tool.

Urbantramper is a member of the Home Alone Music collective.
