Llovers are a 4 piece indie-pop band from the North East of England. A young, ambitious, band spreading dream driven tracks channelled with unquestionable pop sensibility. The band, comprising of Jack Brooks (vocals/guitar), David Macnab (vocals/guitar), Joe Connor (bass/backing vocals) and Matthew Jenkinson (drums), have already landed support slots with the likes of Little Comets, Palace and TRASH in their short time together, as well as attracting widespread tastemaker coverage. His brand new single Just Lust is an euphoric beauty and is captivating from the very beginning.
The London boys Palace who have releases their debut LP So Long Forever will play tonight at Sidecar.
Palace sounds like a band that has always existed. Beautifully crafted and mature, their debut album So Long Forever is sure to ascend them to the status of indie darlings. Fans of Foals and The National will especially appreciate their melancholy and unrushed vibe as well as their existential songwriting, which will stay with you long after the final play.
ISLAND are not yet a household name, but with some releases so far, it can’t be long for these boys, who have already supported Palace, The Bohicas, and Amber Run, the majority of these being sold-out shows.
The band have a very similar sound to The Kooks of yore. ISLAND’s Rollo Doherty, vocalist and frontman of the band, has a vocal sound similar to that of Luke Pritchard (The Kooks). The sound of the band is a nice colourful soundscape; something that fills you with instant joy.
