BANKS - London, Shoreditch Town Hall

Just one of two UK headline dates, it might only be a few months into BANKS’ career, but this sold out show - tickets were all gone in two hours - is considered intimate by her standards. It might be one of the last times you’ll see her in a setting like this.

Creeper - It Hurts

Munching on synth chops until their jaw goes numb, mysterious London act Creeper make a sophisticated entrance on ‘It Hurts’. Caped in cleverly styled synthetic tidbits and some distant, melancholic vocals, this links up with fellow Londoners Pale in bringing in a new brigade of slightly-sad guys sobbing over their keyboards and making some classic pop tracks in the process. ‘It Hurts’ has a great guitar solo, too. So that helps.


Montreal duo Solids are loyal to their chosen name. They hit hard, with manmade objects, aiming straight for all things precious. ‘Traces’, from their debut album ‘Blame Confusion’ (out now on Canada) is a relentless ride through pop-punk’s giddiest manifestations. Think Japandroids with the lights off, amp dial turned up a few notches. Self-damning and completely unapologetic about it, this could - and should - be making its way over to the UK in no time.
