Ones to Watch: The Lost Cavalry

The Lost Cavalry are a London-based alt-folk band formed in 2009 by Mark West, formerly guitarist in Fanfarlo. Their debut EP “Waves Freeze To Rolling Hills” was released last year to critical acclaim. The EP’s lilting shanties told four tales of boats setting sail to faraway islands, ghostly soldiers and ill-fated circus elephants.

Mark sings and plays the concertina, Nick plays guitar, Toby plays the ukulele and glockenspiel, Oliver plays bass and Jonny drums. The band’s beautiful artwork is by Toby, and really captures the themes and feel of the music.

The magical lands created by The Lost Cavalry hark back to idyllic childhood tales of adventure. Their intriguing array of instruments combines with talent and imagination to turn their stories into beautiful songs.
