Following a host of super amazing bands playing for us recently – including LIINES, Witch Fever, The Magnettes, H.Grimace, Ghum and Dream Nails – we were back at The Finsbury on Friday night for another jam-packed night of the best new music.
Noise Noir kick off the night in style with their sultry desert-rock and racing, blues-ridden hooks. With their snarling energy and stomping sounds, expect big things from this exciting new band…
Next up, awesome electro-pop artist Gaptooth wows us with her immense keytar skills and insightful social commentary; topping off the set with an ‘End Of Patriarchy Disco’ that we all so badly need.
Penultimate band of the night Fightmilk deliver an immense, energy-fuelled set, despite front-woman Lily being almost voiceless. After blasting out the wonderfully catchy power punk-pop of ‘Pity Party’, they enlist a range of willing volunteers to help sing the remaining songs. Despite feeling bad for Lily’s throat, it’s an unforgettable and joy-filled half hour, showcasing the unity of the DIY spirit and impressive improvisation skills of this band.
Bringing the night to a close, Australian artist Suzie Stapleton captivates us all with the raw power of her deep vocals and haunting, other-worldly splendour. With impressive musicianship and dark majesty, she casts us all under her spell.
HUGE thanks to all the amazing artists who played for us last night. And we’re very excited to be hosting another gig this month, this time at Brixton Windmill, with Heavy Heart, Tokyo Taboo, Hanya and Scrounge.
