STANLÆY currently performs as a live 5-piece band, performing songs arranged collectively, and re-works of Bethany's solo releases. The band tread the line between incredibly intricate arrangements and evolving feeling improvising their way through sound-worlds making each performance a unique and special experience. Fairy tale experimental jazz folk with an edge.
STANLÆY was recently one of Pink Wafers 20 bands to look out for in Bristol alongside big names Yama Warashi and The Evil Usses.
Further, the band was top of London’s The Standard’s top of the 20 upcoming bands you should see at Glastonbury 2019, exclaiming: “If Björk had grown up in the West Country, we reckon this is what her music would have sounded like. Freaky folk songs with alluringly erratic vocals and knotty song structures make STANLÆY a compelling prospect.”
