+ Special Guests : ROXY GIRLS
"Awkward, angular, angry and inventive” - Tom Robinson, BBC6
Roxy Girls have gone from strength-to-strength at an astonishing rate, with a vast array of critical acclaim, early support from Marc Riley and Tom Robinson at BBC 6 Music (with the band performing for both in session), renowned live shows and their recent signing to Moshi Moshi Records.
The new mini-album, the hotly received "A Poverty of Attention" (recorded with David Brewis of Field Music ) is a thrilling prospect and a huge statement of intent, which sees the band expand on previous material, stripping down the post-punk format and remodelling it for current generation.
Whilst their vernacular might make The Futureheads an easy (albeit apt) comparison, there is an added breathless intensity and intricacy to their instrumentation that calls to mind the likes of Omni or Gang of Four, interwoven with indie-pop sensibilities and hooks that are reminiscent of XTC, Television and Modern Lovers.
The band have earned a reputation for their angular and intoxicatingly idiosyncratic live performances at shows across the UK supporting the likes of Drahla, Du Blonde, Flamingods, The Rhythm Method, Crocodiles, Mush, Duds, Thee MVPS and more.
+ WITNESS PROTECTION
New noise imbued with much gothic and post-punk turbulence, and loud, heady strains of guitar and synth tearing through it like wildfire. Also expect moody vocals, addressing current social issues with biting sarcasm.
