the workhouse - now i am on fire

Bossanova Woodgreen

Garage 59

Promised me Horses

A Moment of Clarity



I just want to drift

Adventures in Winter

The last time I saw the stars

The sky still looks the same


Now I Am On Fire is the fourth album from The Workhouse and is their second release on German record label Oscarson. It comes after their 2014 10” EP “The Sky Still Looks The Same”, which received radio play by Steve Lamacq and featured on 6 music recommends in February 2014.

Combining influences from early Factory records, The Chameleons and Interpol together with re-formed nineties shoegazers Ride and Slowdive, the band mix effects driven mayhem with warm psychedelia to create a mesmerising and bittersweet wall of sound.

Originally formed in Oxford and now based in London and Wales, The Workhouse were famously described as "the new priests of the cathedral of sound" by NME.  They have released singles and albums on dozens of  independent labels since 1999. They have recorded sessions for John Peel, BBC 6 music, XFM, Resonance FM and the Hungarian arm of the BBC World Service. In the live arena they have opened for Explosions in the Sky, Snow Patrol, Six by Seven and Doves. The band have built up a loyal underground following in the UK, Europe and the rest of the world.

The album was recorded at One Cat studios  in South London by Jon Clayton and brings us songs of hope and despair in equal measure, blended with lyrical trips through life, death, hope and guitar pedals.
