Permanent Creeps Club continues at The Macbeth Of Hoxton with another incredible line-up. Don't miss this!
There’s a distinct spirit to ‘Popular Music’, the debut album from Hull four-piece LIFE. It’s the sound of a band doing everything on their terms – not fully out of choice, more by default. These four are self-starting underdogs forming foundations in a discarded city. Hull might be the 2017 UK City of Culture, but it remains a four-hour drive from London – A&R execs prefer to board flights to LA than take the ‘grim’ trip up north. LIFE knew very quickly after forming in 2013 that they had to build from the ground up. And that’s exactly what they’ve done, as ‘In Your Hands’, the record’s urgent, opening track, so blatantly declares.
Five-piece YOWL have gained a reputation as a band of both balance and disharmony; their new EP, ‘Before the Sleep Sets in’, veers from impish morbidity to candid sincerity. Shining a light on the human condition through several prisms, YOWL focus their outlook into one raging sound that cuts through the banality of the everyday and forces thought from the listener.
‘YOWL’s rough-edged, storytelling spirit has nothing to hide [...] all brutal detail and faultless frustration’ - DIY
‘Brooding ruminations on life’s less brilliant parts set to dark, howling garage-rock’ – NME
"There’s nothing ordinary about Venture Lows, right down to the fact 2/3rds of the group are bassists. The East London outfit have been a long time in the making. Back in 2015, they released debut track ‘Summer/RIP’, a Tom Vek-nodding pop blitz that waved farewell to the passing season and, appropriately, arrived before the world went to bits in 2016. The group stayed completely silent in that time, but they’re taking a second step with the hyperactive, intelligent ‘Brenda’. - NME
Fresh from supporting 'Phobophobes' and with little to no music online, Human Behaviour are fast building a reputation on the live scene.
