A folk single!

Currently in the middle of their extensive Autumn UK tour, chamber folk duo (Belinda) O’Hooley & (Heidi) Tidow are releasing a double A side single on Monday 5th November.  
Heidi: "Hey, Belinda, I think the studio's flooded"
The two tracks ‘Gentleman Jack’ and ‘The Last Polar Bear’ feature on their  album ‘The Fragile’ which was released in February.

Gentleman Jack’ a song about 19th Century rural gentlewoman, entrepreneur and serial diarist Anne Lister of Halifax’s Shibden Hall.



The Last Polar Bear’ is an unconventional love song between the last polar bear and a small patch of snow.  A chilling look at what could happen if the polar ice caps were to melt due to global warming. Heidi explains “We think it’s important as songwriters to not just cover love and relationships but sometimes write about uncomfortable topics such as the fragility of the planet, the vulnerability of others and what we are doing to our world.”



‘Gentleman Jack & The Last Polar Bear’ is released on Monday 5th November as a download only double A side single. Available here.
