02/12 – 04/12: Fat White Family
Quite frankly, the only place to be this week in London. Fat White Family’s EartH residency is not only a celebration of their exceptional musical presence, but a melting point of South London’s greatest new bands. Pregoblin, Meatraffle, Peeping Drexels and Madonnatron all feature. Rejoice, as the Serfs Up run comes to an end, it is clear that the Fat White’s are needed now more than ever.
Where? EartH (Dalston)
03/12: Julia Jacklin
Julia Jacklin’s second LP Crushing is one of the year’s best. Her London return comes as part of a tour spanning much of the world. Tracks such as ‘Pressure To Party,’ ‘Body’ and ‘Head Alone’ encapsulate her deep-routed musical philosophy.
Where? O2 Kentish Town Forum (Kentish Town)
From Worcester with love, Soeur mean business. Described as ‘a brutal, soulful assault on the senses,’ one can expect something quite otherworldly as they return to London once more.
Where? Black Heart (Camden)
04/12: Calva Louise
Calva Louise are one of the country’s most formidable new bands. Their sound ties elements of grunge, punk and pop together. In the current climate, they encapsulate the ever growing need for youthful representation and rebellion. Debut album Rhinoceros proves this.
Where? Shacklewell Arms (Dalston)
05/12: Amyl & The Sniffers
Amyl & The Sniffers lead an Australian charge of 70s infused punk. In spite of such a statement, they are refreshing and powerful in the live setting. Their Camden return will be special, no doubt.
Where? The Underworld (Camden)
Liverpool dreamboats SPINN return to London for their biggest capital gig to date. Following the release of a debut LP and a tonne of hot tracks to match, the indie-outfit are one of the best. ‘Who You Are,’ ‘She Takes Her Time’ and, of course, ‘Notice Me’ are absolute bops!
Where? The Garage (Highbury)
05/12: Tin Pigeons / Hoofa
Notting Hill Arts Club is a hotbed of new music, its industry ties link insiders, fans and new media aline. Tin Pigeons hail from the East Midlands, Uppingham to be precise. They have been branded as “one of the best festival bands we know” by BBC Introducing. Hoofa need no introduction, they are set to take London and beyond by storm in 2020.
Where? Notting Hill Arts Club (Notting Hill)
06/12: Strange Bones
Werkhaus’ biggest gig to date sees Strange Bones head East for a night of politically infused post/punk. Co-aligning with the ‘Blitz part2 Exhibition,’ a night of art and music will interlink into something magically immersive.
Where? Werkhaus (Brick Lane)
