A new project from songwriter Michael Aston...

Knightstown is a vehicle for the imagination of Michael Aston, a composer and songwriter of remarkable breadth.

Inspired by classical composers such as J.S. Bach, he's also infatuated with left-field electronics and merges the two to create something remarkable.

Gradually bringing his work into focus, there's a remarkable sense of emotional weight with everything Knightstown sets his name against.

More music is incoming, with Clash able to share a live version of recent single 'First Cry'.

It's a powerful performance, reminiscent of Sampha or even Jamie Woon while still having that classical flair.

The broad, open, languid arrangement is peppered with electronics, lifting the piece higher and higher.

Tune in now.
