Pocketbooks United Kingdom
Pocketbooks are a pop group from London, combining melodic harmonies, spiralling guitars and descriptive storytelling. The band members are Andy Hudson, Daniel Chapman, Emma Hall, Ian Cowen and Jonny Tansey. The band formed in 2006, and appeared on a compilation, The Kids At The Club, later that year. In April 2007, Pocketbooks played the first ever Indietracks event on a 1950s steam railway in Derbyshire. This show coincided with the release of the band's debut single, Cross The Line, on Atomic Beat Records.
