‘How the other half live and die’ is a cinematic and spacious debut album written and recorded by multi-instrumentalists Robert Manning, Chris Daniel and Adrian Jones.

Robert, Chris and Adrian assembled in early 2014 out of friendship and a shared admiration for bands such as Stars of the Lid, Low and Sparklehorse. What started as a simple coming together to craft percussionless compositions in a spare bedroom turned into something more focused after recognition for their first release, ‘Stand/still’. Encouraged by appreciation from Simon Raymonde (Bella Union, Amazing Radio) and Kara Manning (Rolling Stone, WFUV Radio) amongst others, Cold, cold heart was born.

‘How the other half live and die’, as a collective work, is built around the concepts of love and loss. In ‘Megan’, ‘Anna’ and ‘Hannah’, the band have written songs that soundtrack the beauty and challenges in their romantic relationships, whilst ‘Stand/still’ and ‘An elegy (for Martha)’ capture the sadness and nostalgia left behind in the wake of departed loved ones.

The album is Cold, cold heart’s shared soundtrack to life; to the fear and beauty in death; to infatuation and devotion; to the band’s personal battles with illness. With Robert’s 10-year struggle living with multiple sclerosis a constant backdrop, delicacy and simplicity resonate in all that the band does. The most important instrument is the listener’s imagination.

Here are some reviews about their music. Sean Adams (Drowned in Sound): "...like Explosions in the Sky caught up in Low's ominous dark storm clouds." Gideon Coe (BBC 6 Music): "Wistful, to my ears."
