Underwater Boys + Mandeville + STEALING SIGNS + Third Dart
Entry Requirements: 18+
A special night of music lined up here as we welcome back our good friends and former Bassment drinks slinger Tom & Nick Klar.
Underwater Boys Lush Dream Pop which has seen the brothers get snapped up by Cannibal Hymns and Coda Music Agency within a very short space of time. We couldn't sum it up any better ourselves than when NME singled them out as their 'NME Emerging' pick of the week.
" Siblings usually make for fruitful music collaborations. It worked alright for The Kinks’ Ray and Dave Davis, Kings Of Leon and The Jackson 5 – all of whom used the spirit of brotherly love to make some pretty damn great music. Brighton duo Underwater Boys look set to follow in their footsteps if their debut songs are anything to go by.
Made up of brothers Tom & Nick Klar, the pair released single ‘Everyone You Know’ back in October – pairing it with the hip-swinging ‘Lies’ a month later. The former wears their influences, like The Cocteau Twins and The Cure on their sleeves – but weave in Unknown Mortal Orchestra-like vocals and groovy Tame Impala riffs. Most remarkable about the pair’s initial offerings is the frankness and honesty that burrow into the lyrics of ‘Everyone You Know’ – which were written about anxiety and internal battles. Few have managed to address the subject, but offer a optimistic take on bettering yourself on your own terms. Early days for the duo – but this initial offering has made one hell of splash.
Essential track: ‘Everyone You Know’ "
