Showcasing the Best New Music, Curating the Classics

PREVIEW: Gigs of the Week in Leeds, 15th-21st June

Ego States @ The Key Club, Saturday 15th June

A four-piece band from West Yorkshire, Ego States draw inspiration from artists such as The Kinks and The Beatles, while also incorporating a lot of punk edge sound into their music. Nevertheless, it’s the rock n roll vibe which shines through all Ego States songs most strongly, making the wait for their first LP really exciting. Be sure to check out the band’s latest single ‘We’ll Be Dancing’ and grab your tickets for the gig at The Key Club in Leeds! (TICKETS)

Creatures @ Brudenell Social Club, Sunday 16th June

Creatures is a London-based five-piece band which has been making music together since the summer of 2016. By now, they’re known for their inventive live shows and the ability to surpass the audience’s expectations when it comes to their sense of humour and wit. To make it even more interesting, the band describes their genre as ‘Western Coast’ –  if you’re curious what that means exactly then definitely grab your tickets for the Sunday show at the Brudenell!

Tangled Hair @ Brudenell Social Club, Wednesday 19th June

Tangled Hair was created by Alan Welsh and James Trood, ex-member of Colour, and Alex Lloyd who joined them as the third member of the new project. The band has already been together for ten years and released three EPs and one full-length album We Do What We Can back in 2018. Inspired by indie rock and post-hardcore, Tangled Hair offers an unforgettable dynamic on stage and is a must see in Leeds this week. (TICKETS)

Stereolab @ Leeds University Union Stylus, Friday 21st June

Throughout the Nineties and some of the Noughties, Anglo-French band Stereolab were quietly one of the most interesting bands operating in Western music. With a run of brilliant albums from Mars Audiac Quintet to Dots And Loops, the romantic/creative partnership of Laetitia Sadier and Tim Gane stood proudly apart from the trends of Britpop and alternative rock, using their inspirations from the past to create something altogether stranger and more interesting. This reunion tour, their first live shows in nearly a decade, which swings past Leeds’ Stylus, coincides with a re-issue campaign of their ‘90s output. Beg, borrow or steal for a ticket, this is the chance to see legends in action! (TICKETS)
