Joshua Burnell makes retro pop-rock for the modern world.

His latest album Glass Knight – which according to the Financial Times, “plays like a lost out-take from Spiders-From-Mars-era Bowie” – won over a lot of new fans upon its release in 2023.

Expect hooky melodies drenched in warm, retro-synth textures, reverbing guitars, lush harmonies and words that make you think. Imagine The War On Drugs meets Genesis with “lashings of Peter Gabriel stylings”, The Guardian.

“A creatively fearless artist… 5/5” RnR Magazine
