Sincere Deceivers are a London based indie folk-rock 3-piece. A long way from the rolling hills of home, the Yorkshire natives have developed a folk driven sound, rooted in the storytelling tradition. After releasing their first EP, Autumnal Dreams, with a launch at St Pancras Old Church in 2015, Matt Glover (vocals, acoustic guitar), Tim Davies (electric guitar, vocals), and Dom Main (cello, vocals) have been regulars on the London circuit, developing their unique acoustic soundscapes and, amongst others, playing shows for Songwriting Magazine, Sofar Sounds, Folkroom Records, New Roots Promotions along the way.
The release of ‘Gladness’ served as a wintry bookend to 2019, following the release of ‘Hot Handed’ in January, described by Tom Robinson (BBC Radio 6) as a display of “perfect poise… understated intelligence”, which emerged after a launch gig at the Sebright Arms and has received local and national airplay, including support from Introducing on BBC Radio 6 Music. It marked their first collaboration with Shuta Shinoda (Daughter, Spiritualized, Haley Bonar) recorded live straight to tape at the Vintage Hackney Road Studios.
2020 was a year of stalled plans for obvious reasons, but the trio hope to resurrect their passion and plotting in the coming year.
