Neil Halstead returns with 'Oh ! Mighty Engine'

Neil's single 'Queen Bee' is released on 1st September, following on the 8th by his new album 'Oh! Mighty Engine', on Brushfire Records.

Long time Neil Halstead fans would make an argument for him being the great undiscovered English song-writing talent of the last twenty years. Appropriate that a seminal shoegaze songwriter inspired by Nick Drake would keep a fuzzy profile below the mainstream radar, living a quiet surfer’s life in Cornwall.

With a generation of ‘nu-gazers’ like Deerhunter, Fennez and Atlas Sounds having discovered his back catalogue as the songwriter in Slowdive and a legacy of outstanding narcotised Americana in his Mojave 3 incarnation, he has entered his third phase as a solo artist.
