Trust Fund / The Jelas @ The Cellar, Oxford
Sunday 16 February 2014, 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Trust Fund: Trust Fund is Ellis Jones from Bristol. Ellis writes songs about love and life and relationships in a way that brings to mind the vaguely folky and indie rock sounds of Neutral Milk Hotel, Waxahatchee and early Sebadoh. Live, Ellis plays with a backing band of a rotating line-up of friends depending on which city he’s in and who’s free to play. His latest EP Don’t Let Them Begin was released through UK collective label Reeks of Effort in October and picked up praise from NME, The Line Of Best Fit, DIY, The Fly and more.
The Jelas: They’ve learnt their instruments by playing the songs they taught themselves to write. The Jelas have been Aled, Natalie and Colin since 2007. A rudimentary bass, drums and guitar is the platform for them to mess about with the fundaments of popular song in order to surprise and entertain each other, besides giving anyone watching and/or listening something to watch and/or listen to for a bit.
