As you might’ve seen earlier this month, we’re teaming up with record label Big Indie for a new monthly night featuring a whole crop of new bands that we’re very excited about indeed.
Taking place monthly at Two Tribes Brewery, a new venue nestled in Kings Cross’ Tileyard Studios (v close to DIY HQ, FYI), we’ll be bringing you one top notch new band a month, in a lovely beery space, for the grand old price of free.
First up on Wednesday night (11th April) was Factory Seconds, a London four-piece with a distinctly ’80s twist. The band’s three vocalists wormed around each others’ words brilliantly, and they’re a multi-faceted proposition: every hint of darkness offered was contrasted by a thudding, post-punk bassline and sunny, chorus-y guitar lick.
New single ‘The Sleepwalkers’ showed off this duality best, with sweet vocals clashing gorgeously with a booming counterpart. As an opening gambit for the new series goes, then, it’s a bloody smash.
Calling all new bands! If you want to be a part of our Big Indie Big Nights series, then you can apply to play RIGHT HERE.
