The UK charity Bottletop and clothing brand Fenchurch continue their captivatingly clever and creative collaboration with the launch of The Bottletop Band’s album, ‘Dream Service’. The star-studded collective behind the exceptional and eclectic sounds, includes: Eliza Doolittle, Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals), Matt Helders (Arctic Monkeys), Get Cape Wear Cape Fly, Sam Sparro, Reverend and The Makers.
Following on from the hugely successful ‘Sound Affects’ album series, ’Dream Service’ is aimed at raising funds and awareness for the charity’s work. As well as designing and producing ethical and eco-friendly fashion products, (see our post featuring ‘The Clever Clutch to Cling to’ here), loved by the likes of Kate Moss and Paris Hilton and generating employment in Salvador and Brazil, Bottletop also supports grass roots education projects in Brazil, Malawi, Mozambique, Rwanda and the UK. Cameron Saul, the son of the Mulberry founder, and friend Oliver Wayman are the brains behind Bottletop, a charity aimed at empowering young people to take control of their lives. What they do is very clever and inspirational; creating highly desirable products, structuring sustainable business models and transforming young lives.
A single from the new album is available for free download – ‘Fall of Rome’ – a collaboration featuring Carl Barât (Libertines), Andy Nicholson (ex-Arctic Monkeys) and Drew McConnell (Babyshambles). Download it here: http://www.bottletopband.com/
