The Sam Newbould Quintet is an award winning ensemble based in Amsterdam. Led by alto saxophonist Sam Newbould, the band includes a stellar lineup of international musicians. Drawing together influences from Radiohead, Wayne Shorter, English folk, and 20th Century classical music, their sound mixes emotive melodies, lush harmony and progressive rock energy.
Bogus Notus describes something beautiful and intriguing yet awkward and unfitting.
The quintet’s upcoming album takes listeners on a journey through the mysterious corners of the Northern English countryside. Mixing styles, crossing genres, merging folk melodicism with dark chords and heavy grooves, Bogus Notus spins together a joy of home mixed with the discomfort of being an outsider.
