With an abundance of amazing artists and awesome shows coming up in the calendar, we’ve carefully handpicked one of our stand-out events which we’re particularly looking forward to!
We’re very excited to have Hunted by Elephants, Imaginary Dreamers, Real Teeth and Hunt Us performing for us live at The Workshop on the 23rd of February.
If you haven’t heard of these artists, then check them out below and make sure you get to see them live up close and personal!
Inspired by the rock classics of the 70s, Hunted By Elephants are a high-energy trio renewing the time-honoured union of soaring vocals, growling riffs and energising drum beats. Formed in mid 2018 by Apostolos Liapis (vocals, drums), Roman Flourendzou (guitars) and Raymond Phelan (bass), their riff driven songs have heavy undertones and invoke an atmosphere of the golden years of hard rock from the 70s and beyond.
Formed in 2014, Imaginary Dreamers manages to deliver a unique emotive, exciting rock show with tons of hooks and great energy to make audiences dance..
It's full of drama but lotsa good vibes also.
The band has a lot in store this year besides gigging the hell out of it. recording new single and new ep to capture the brandnew band line-up incl new bass player Izzy in the ranks.
Come and catch this exhilarating band live and loud on one of their gigs.
REAL TEETH are an alt-rock-three-piece-meal-deal that provoke flavours of early era nu-prog Muse, the heavy stoner rock of Queens of the Stone Age and Royal Blood with an additional dose of the dulcet tones of Joy Division, Interpol and various other magical sounds of the ether.
"God that's extraordinary! It's got something really special, bursting with energy and life."
(Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music on "Baby Bird")
London post-rock outfit Hunt Us released their debut single "Baby Bird" in June 2018 to rave reviews with support from BBC Introducing in London and independent music bloggers alike. Follow up single "Oaks Pit '66" is a gritty folk-rock account of England's largest mining disaster in 1866 and was released in October 2018. The self-titled final track from EP "The Ancient Escape" is due for release in January 2019 and is a rousing post-punk epic.
Hunt Us was formed in 2016 and is Gemma Kirk (vocals/keys), Nicky Kirk (guitar), Richard Nicholls (bass) and Tim Greany (drums). Musical influences are broad and include Lungfish, PJ Harvey, Steve Reich, Joni Mitchell, Godspeed You Black Emperor and Enablers.
Releasing their EP “The Ancient Escape“ in 2018, Hunt us worked with long time friend and producer John Hannon (Understand, Liberez), to create a debut record spanning the band’s many sounds, which incorporate folk, soundscape, post-punk and experimental.
