About this item

Last autumn Peregrine, an early demo from a Medway six-piece Story Books, caught the attention of indie luminaries Radio 1’s Huw Stephens and XFM’s John Kennedy.

Fast-forward to June 2012 – and that same song with its delicate arpeggios and impassioned vocals - has been chosen for the Radio 1 BBC Introducing playlist prompting it’s official release.

In the intervening months Story Books have been accruing fans via their debut single All These Arrows and jaw dropping live performances including a sold out headline show at Hoxton Hall and as support to James Vincent McMorrow.

Their debut single All These Arrows - another vivid display of the craft and attention to detail that's made band mainstay Kristofer Harris a sought-after producer in his own right - resulted in more love from the airwaves from the likes of 6music’s Stuart & Maconie and Tom Robinson and a playlist at Amazing Radio.

The last nine months have seen Harris compiling an arsenal of songs for live and recording that are at once emotive and timeless. The rest of 2012 looks good for Kristofer and Story Books.

"a distinctly British track with an utterly beautiful, bracingly panoramic chorus." - THE LINE OF BEST FIT

"a crossover between careful, minimal XX nightscapes and Kris Harris' warm folksy vocals.... very British and evocatively textured" - SWEEPING THE NATION

"Story Books have enlightened the music scene of late, with their lovely acoustics and lyrical prose" - THE 405
