Lofter in its various guises has had its constant in Ant Clifford, the energetic frontman who has been writing and experimenting with music since he was tiny. The latest, and some would say most definitive, Lofter line-up includes Chris Davies, the silver-fingered lead guitar whose effortless harmonies add essential depth to the Lofter back catalogue. Ant and Chris have been gigging around the pubs and bars of Sheffield for nearly a year, treating drinkers to such eclectic gems as the insanely catchy All My Trials, Raindrop with its vigorous guitar work and ambitious scales, and the mellow acoustic ponderings of Stand Still. Musical experimentation is very much alive in their set in the shape of a music box glued to Ant's guitar which adds a whimsical charm to How the Story Goes, Ben’s Song and Changed - their recorded tracks also involve French horn, keyboard and a vast layered choir of Ants and Chrises. The pair produce a fluid, multi-layered experience with many nice surprises throughout the varied set.
