TUGBOAT CAPTAIN GIG ON FRI 7TH FEB

Tugboat Captain headline the Scared To Dance and For The Rabbits gig night on Friday 7th February at The Victoria.

Support comes from The Other Ones and you can get your free tickets at DICE.

From their humble beginnings in a West London student home, Tugboat Captain have come an awful long way. The band first emerged back in 2016 with the distinctly DIY-debut release, which established their unmistakable way with a melody. The giant leap forward came with second record, Everybody Seems to Think That I’m a Raincloud, a collection of heartbreak anthems, that was one of the sleeper indiepop hits of 2017. That record’s success saw them play for the likes of Wales Goes Pop and Indietracks, drew near universal acclaim from the blogging community, and this Spring will see them head to America to play at both New Colossus Fest and SXSW.

Tugboat Captain’s ever evolving sound takes in elements from across the lineage of alternative music history. Equally influenced by The Beatles as Galaxie 500, sounding one second like Guided By Voices, the next like Camera Obscura. The band are currently gearing up to the release of their third album, recorded last year at Abbey Road, and early snippets have hinted at their most ambitious and enthralling release to date. Don’t miss the chance to see where this band are headed next, because for this band the sky’s the only limit.

The Other Ones are a London-based quartet who describe their music as, loud, fuzz drenched pop songs. Formed back in 2017, the band have since spent their time making a name on the London DIY-scene, through impressive lives shows and a series of self-releases. This culminated in September last year, with their most recent, and best, release to date, Picking Up the Pieces. With a sound going from riot grrrl influenced punk to melodic bedroom-pop, fans of Fresh or Fightmilk will find an awful lot to love with The Other Ones.
