Psychedelic folk music infused with trip-hop, dub, and blues.
High Shelf Remedy are inspired by nature, activism, love, art, and freedom, whilst drawing songwriting from influences such as Morcheeba, The Moulettes, Gentle Mystics, The Levellers, and Sublime.
With a psychedelic folk sound combining 60’s folk revival influence with trip-hop, dub, and blues, their eclectic sets are at times gentle and soothing and at other times it will bash you in the face with guitar solos, dubby bass, and colourful drums. Led by the mellifluous harmonies of besties Lauren and Lu; this melting pot gives High Shelf Remedy their own uniquely blended multi-genre concoction of carnivalesque sound. High Shelf Remedy are quirky, fun, and slightly eccentric yet at the same time subtle and chic.
Often danceable, always sing-along-able High Shelf Remedy have dazzled a wide range of audiences from festival crowds and music venues to community events. Performing on the Caravanserai stage at Camp Bestival, on the main stage at Purbeck Valley Folk Festival, at Tolpuddle Martyrs Festival, many of the UK's alternative festivals, as well as Greenpeace and Extinction Rebellion fundraisers and demonstrations.
