August and After

Indie Artists

August and After are an indie-folk trio based in London. They weave together rich three part harmonies on classically inspired layers of guitar, viola, piano, synth and percussion.

Songwriters Ned and Vedantha originally met whilst studying at Cambridge. After countless nights spent honing their vocal harmonies and intricate guitar playing, they moved to London where they met Jordan, a classical violist, studying at the Royal Academy of Music. The three whiled away an afternoon on London’s Southbank, talking about their favourite musicians; the likes of Bon Iver and Kings of Convenience. They formed as August and After, and after many sold-out London shows, support slots for artists such as Ghostpoet and Scott Matthews, a Ronnie Scott’s residency and several European tours, they travelled to Paris to record their debut EP, Cascades, with French producer Jonathan Lefèvre-Reich (We Were Evergreen).

With support from the likes of BBC 6 Music, Kerrang! Radio and a stream of online press, and Wolves featured on Spotify UK’s official Your Coffee Break playlist garnering over 200k plays in a matter of weeks, the trio will head to the studio fresh from a set at this year’s Secret Garden Party and with a nomination for the Unsigned Music Awards under their belt, to start recording two follow-up singles...
