Follow the glitteringly explosive and all-round impressive duo, audiobooks, for a day as they photograph their sea excursion in the name of Green Man festival.

In their new project, art student and model Evangeline Ling has teamed up with a David Wrench, legendary producer who’s credited on records by the likes of The XX, Factory Floor, Frank Ocean and David Byrne. Ling and Wrench are audiobooks.

The duo have been quickening pulses with their blisteringly high energy live show. Ling’s vocal – which flits from gritty and emotive to playful with a pop sensibility – tells inky tales of late night London over Wrench’s glitchy electronica. Releasing their music via Heavenly Recordings, home to the likes of Stealing Sheep, Saint Etienne and Boy Azooga, Evangeline and David are story tellers, their tales stretching from the Welsh coastline to the heart of the capital. Listen to ‘Hot Salt’, the latest single from audiobooks, below.

Check out what audiobooks got up to on the day of their show on Green Man Ahoy, the Green Man Festival’s annual pre-party on sea…
