Ibiza Balconey Session

When Ibiza comes up in conversation these days, it tends to be within the context of cheap 18-30 holidays, dodgy dance nights and inflated egos.

Way back when, though, the White Island was a haven for free thinkers, those who chafed at the constraints of Western values. Figures from the counter culture descended on Ibiza, crafting a reputation for housing gentle, acoustic plucking troubadours singing against the falling sun.

It's a lineage which sits well on Ben Howard's shoulders. A Communion associate, his debut album waltzed its way into the charts last year sparking 12 months of unexpected success.

Recently travelling out to Ibiza, Ben Howard recorded a typically chilled live set. Watch 'Keep Your Head Up' below.
