SUDS GIG ON SAT 7TH MARCH

SUDS headline the Scared To Dance and For The Rabbits gig night on Saturday 7th March at The Victoria.

Support comes from Sprinters and you can get your free tickets at DICE.

Formed back at the start of 2018, SUDS are three gals, one lad and a variety of instruments based out of Peterborough. In March last year they caught the ear of many with their debut EP, It Suits Me Well, which showcased just how far their friendship, and their music had come. They closed out a break-out 2019 with the Bill Ryder-Jones produced single You’ll Feel Better.

SUDS’ sound is one of atmospheric guitar sketches, soft soaring vocals and creative rhythms, the sound of creative people casting off the shackles of the daily grind and letting their musical imaginations run wild. The band have recently completed work on a brand new EP, so expect new material from a band who’s musical journey is just getting started.

Beginning life as the solo project of frontman Neil Jarvis, Sprinters first emerged back in 2017 with their self-titled debut album on Icecapades. Two years later, and now a four-piece band, the band have recently released their second album, Struck Gold, on the Madrid-based Meritorio Records.

Struck Gold is something of a re-invention for the band, the indiepop that emerged from Neil’s solo songwriting largely removed and replaced with songs that are noisier, sharper and more focused than ever before. The result of taking a year out to focus entirely on this new record, the tracks on Struck Gold seem to push Sprinters’ sound; the gentle janglers are lusher and more swoonsome, the angular numbers are crisper, the noisier sections, terrifically loud and thrilling, which bodes very nicely for a live set that might just blow you away.

SCARED TO DANCE PODCAST #100

Our podcast is back with our favourite songs from the past month.

We kick off with The Tubs and the brilliant “I Don’t Know How It Works”.

Wesley Gonzalez is back with “Change” and so too are The Magnetic Fields with “The Day the Politicians Died” from their newly announced Quickies LP.

Cate Le Bon & Group Listening reimagine “The Light” from Reward and Sufjan Stevens collaborates with Lowell Brams on “The Runaround”.

Duncan Barrett releases his second solo album Raise the Effra! and we lift “North Wood” from that alongside the latest from Strawberry Generation and Massage.

“Rip the Price Off” is the lead single from Store Front’s imminent Task EP plus theres’s Papur Wal, Es and Porridge Radio.

Also on the podcast there’s Flyying Colours, Seablite, Hanya, Ezra Furman, Ralegh Long and The Little Hands of Asphalt.
