As we get to the end of the a weird and difficult year we’ve decided to revisit our 2020 releases, bring you some offers, and look forward to 2021 by introducing you to a raft of new signings. But we’re starting today with Captain Handsome.
- #RYAdvent2020 – make sure you’re following us on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram to get the full experience.
We head back to January to look at the release of the debut EP from Captain Handsome, I Am Not An Animal.
Twinkling, melancholy, and a with a carefully applied smattering of off-kilter details the solo collection from Lily Rae (also of Fightmilk) drew on influences from Mitski to Dolly Parton. Drawing praise from bloggers, and securing some 6Music play too, it’s lo-fi sad bangers all the way.

“a sublime and potent mix” – Cambridge Music Reviews
“fresh, weird, and wonderfully personal” – Get In Her Ears
“a masterful EP” – Traveller’s Tunes
Captain Handsome had been due to jump on board for a summer performance at Indietracks but the ‘rona meant it was a somewhat more subdued but nevertheless amazing At Home set.
