HANYA GIG ON FRI 6TH APRIL

Hanya headline the Scared To Dance and For The Rabbits gig night on Friday 6th April at The Victoria.

Entry is free and support comes from Two Tribes.

Formerly operating under the moniker of Post-Heather, Hanya are a two-piece shoegaze duo hailing from Brighton. Fronted by chief songwriter, Heather Sheret, their sound combines the ethereal beauty of the Cocteau Twins or Mazzy Star, with a more driving, guitar-led sound akin to acts like Angel Olsen or Ty Segall.

The duo released their debut double-A single, Airplane/Stone last year, and with new material in the pipeline don’t miss the chance to see hear just how exciting this band could be.

They may have only formed ten months ago, and not yet released any music into the world, yet East London quartet Two Tribes have already made quite the impression. Their growing reputation has been cemented courtesy of a series of high-profile support slots, culminating in a packed out debut headline set at The Shacklewell Arms.

Describing their sound as synth-psych, the band cites influences from Talk Talk to School of Seven Bells. With new recordings on the way soon, this will be a chance to check out one of the capital’s most exciting new bands before their reputation explodes.

THE LEAF LIBRARY GIG ON FRI 2ND MARCH

The Leaf Library headline the Scared To Dance and For The Rabbits gig night on Friday 2nd March at The Victoria.

Entry is free and support comes from Jeremy Tuplin.

The Leaf Library make multi-layered, two-chord drone pop, channelling the warm fuzz of Yo La Tengo, the spacious repetition of Talk Talk, and Movietone’s seaside. The band released their debut album, Daylight Versions, on WIAIWYA back in 2015, a collection of hazy, drone-laden love songs to meteorology and the sea, which received backing from the likes of Uncut and The Guardian among others.

Live they add a volume and intensity to their recorded material, driving motoric rhythms sing out atop bed of synths, weaving guitars and whatever a variety of guest performers bring on the day from flugelhorns to saxophones. The band released double A-side single “City In Reverse”/”Kendrick Road” in October 2017, and are currently working on their second album due for release in 2018.

Somerset born, London based songwriter Jeremy Tuplin is a musician equally influenced by Andy Shauf and documentaries about space. Courtesy of his rich Bill Callahan like baritone he weaves lyrical paintings, equally as likely to be odes to Albert Einstein as musings on the fleeting nature of youth.

Throughout his most recent album, I Dreamt I Was An Astronaut, there is an attempt to fuse the minutia of everyday living, with all its heartbreaks, money worries and existential crises, with the wider questions of the universe and our tiny, almost insignificant place in it all. Performing solo here, this will be a rare opportunity to hang off his every crafted word.
