Benjamin Francis Leftwich has returns with new single 'Elephant', listen here.
'Elephant' is the first piece of material to surface since his acclaimed album 'Gratitute', released earlier this year, and is taken from a forthcoming EP due this autumn on Dirty Hit.
Where 'Gratitude' saw Ben embrace more electronic elements and bring darker production nuances into play, 'Elephant' takes him back to his roots, as those signature hushed vocals impact over an ethereal choir backdrop and delicate guitars.
Speaking about 'Elephant', Ben said: “For me, this song is about re-connecting with personal history and unresolved sadness through a clearer and more compassionate lens than was looked through before. I have always loved elephants for their strength, beauty and unique nature, and so using the idiom of an ‘elephant in the room’ felt right in writing about the past from a kinder and calmer perspective.
I think this song is an observation on re-engaging with past trauma for growth, rather than seeing it as something to ignore and pretend isn’t there, or never even happened.”
We are thrilled to be welcoming Ben to Inchyra as part of this intimate UK tour which will see him play in venues he hasn't before around the country.
TICKETING: Tickets for shows at Inchyra can be purchased online through our ticketing partner Skiddle. Tickets through Skiddle are print at home e-tickets meaning there are no delivery charges. For some shows, we also issue paper tickets which can be bought over the counter at the following outlets: St Madoes Village Store (very close to the venue), Spar in Errol, Bandwagon in Perth and Groucho's in Dundee. Tickets are transferable but non-refundable – this means that, once you have purchased a ticket you can give it or sell it to someone but it cannot be refunded by the venue. This is standard practice for live shows as it would be impossible to run shows if you couldn’t rely on the ticket sales. If a show is sold out, Skiddle run a very effective re-sale facility, which can be accessed through your Skiddle account.
ACCESS TO INCHYRA: Inchyra is a private home which is opened up for shows. The car park will open an hour before the doors open, which is usually at 7pm. Please don’t arrive on the estate earlier than this.
SEATING FORMATS: Seating for all shows at Inchyra is unreserved. We will tell you at the top of each show listing what style of show it is. Here's a description of what to expect for each style of seating:
DISABLED ACCESS: If you require disabled access or seating for any of our shows, including standing, please contact us on 01738 860066 and we will do our best to arrange this for you. Please be advised that disabled seating at standing shows requires the construction of a ramp and raised stand so please contact us well in advance. Priority will be given to wheelchair users. We cannot guarantee disabled seating if we are not notified in advance of the show. There are disabled parking bays close to the venue, where again, wheelchair users will be given priority.
FOOD: for most shows at Inchyra there is hot food available (usually street style food) and we will detail this in the show information at the top of the page. Food is served from doors opening time.
BAR: Unless otherwise specified there is a licenced bar available at all shows.
UNDER 18s: we are all in favour of introducing children and young people to live music at an early age, however, our experience is that below a certain age the vast majority of children find big loud shows too much which is not great for them or for the rest of the audience. We will give a minimum age which in our experience is suitable for each show. Please do not buy tickets for children below the stated age as we will not be able to give them access.
