The Seven Twenty

The Seven Twenty are a Cambridge based indie rock band comprising James Burling (singer, songwriter, guitarist), Stewart Harris (bassist, backing vocals) and Helen Robertson (drums).

By any measure, The Seven Twenty had a great 2015. They released their gorgeous debut LP and had a fantastic album launch party at the wonderful Cambridge venue, The Portland Arms. The band gigged extensively in support of the LP towards the end of the year and are scheduled to appear at Relevant Vinyl Shop and Cafe in Cambridge on the 23rd January. Check their facebook for more details of this and other upcoming gigs.

Despite only appearing in November, the LP made number one in the Stagger Indie best of the year chart. It also made the top five in Dave Hammond’s best of the year show on Cambridge 105.


Both the LP and single “Haiku” are available in phsical digital formats from the CiS bandcamp page at

The record is also available from Norman Records and Relevant.
