First shows can be taut, nerve-wracking experiences. Hero Fisher should know.
Forming a new group, the ensemble made their debut last summer... in Hyde Park supporting the Rolling Stones in front of thousands of people.
No pressure, then. Refusing to do things by halves, Hero Fisher has an epic side, an over-riding ambition which billows out of her music.
New single 'No Ceremony' is the perfect introduction, the most sublime distillation of these elements. Out on June 30th, it lingers on a pulsating guitar riff with Fisher's vocals soaring up above.
There's a sense of Jeff Buckley here - not the vocals, but rather the flamboyant invention, the careless dis-regard for rules and regulations.
Backed with a balletic video, you can watch the clip below.

9 Brighton The Great Escape (Prince Albert, 10.30pm)
30 London Dingwalls
6 London Hoxton Bar & Grill
