Having started life as the no-fi home recording project of lead singer Joseph Walsh, South London’s Dignan Porch have developed a sound that is laden with huge pop hooks, bone dry melancholia and skewed takes on everyday life. Their music is both effortlessly melodic and oddly haunting.
Commanding a cult following thanks to releases on the legendary Captured Tracks and Faux Discx and a long-running residency at the Brixton Windmill, Dignan Porch are venerated stalwarts of London’s DIY indie rock scene.
