Although yet to grace the internet with any recorded material, Jessica’s Brother are already creating waves of excitement via a series of impressive live shows. The London-based trio are fronted by singer-songwriter Tom Charleston, backed by former Ramshackle Union-bassist, Charlie Higgs, and Wave Pictures-drummer, Jonny Helm.
Describing their music as guitar, bass, drums and some ooo’s, the band’s take on rock music, infused with Americana influences and a twist of English-gothic darkness has rightly or wrongly drawn comparison with Pavement. This live show will be a first chance to hear material from their recently recorded debut album ahead of its as yet confirmed 2018 release.
Originally the brainchild of London-based lead-singer Rhys Griffiths, Ski Saigon has now expanded to a quintet featuring members of Mooncreatures, Grubs and Tigercats. Their sound is one of bright guitars, burbling dreamy-synths and muffled, muted vocals.
Ski Saigon burst onto the scene last year, with their well-received debut EP, released via a 32-page short story by Art Is Hard Records. They’ve recently shared their first material as a five-piece, in the shape of new single “Iran Tourist Dream”, a tantalising glimpse of where the music of this most intriguing new act is headed next.
