Unloved

David Holmes
Keefus Ciancia
Jade Vincent

The story of Unloved began in a late-night Hollywood bar in 2015, The Rotary Room, where Ciancia – known for his collaborations with T-Bone Burnett, including the soundtrack to True Detective and his unprecedented project with Jeff Bridges, Sleeping Tapes, among others – and Vincent, held a long-running music salon at which their fellow musicians could experiment and collaborate.

Inviting Holmes over to DJ at the club, the trio discovered a shared love for 60s’ girl groups and French pop and film noir soundtracks, Brigitte Fontaine, Shuggie Otis, George ‘Shadow’ Morton, Bruno Nicolai, Lee Hazlewood and Jack Nitzsche, along with a tremendous desire to work together.

Holmes, renowned as one of the world’s most innovative, inquisitive and ingenious DJs, alongside being a hugely respected soundtrack composer who has provided scores for Steven Soderbergh’s Out of Sight, Ocean’s Eleven, Twelve and Thirteen, HBO series Mosaic, Steve McQueen’s Hunger, and BBC series The Fall and London Spy, also ran his own club, God’s Waiting Room, in his native Belfast.

Like the Rotary Room for Ciancia and Vincent, God’s Waiting Room was a place for Holmes to explore music and film and to invite thrilling artists to play — Jane Weaver, Jarvis Cocker, Andy Weatherall amongst others – so it was inevitable the trio would end up collaborating, a union which very quickly blossomed and saw the recording and release of their stunning debut album Guilty Of Love in the spring of 2016.
