PREVIEW: Gigs of the Week in Leeds, 1st-7th June

Emmy The Great @ The Wardrobe, Sunday 2nd June

Born in Hong Kong but raised in England, Emma-Lee Moss works under the moniker Emmy The Great, writing some of the best melancholic, moody tunes that you can find out there. Often speaking up about social issues, such as growing up in the digital era or struggling to find the meaning in life, Emma-Lee is one of our favourites to visit Leeds this week. Check out her latest album Second Love and grab your tickets for the gig now! (TICKETS)

Methyl Ethel @ Brudenell Social Club, Wednesday 5th June

Methyl Ethel is an Australian art rock band, appreciated for their authenticity and uncompromising weirdness. Triage, the band’s third album, came out earlier this year and turned out to be their most accessible and reflective material to date, but still ambiguous enough to have fun while trying to understand the meaning behind each song. Methyl Ethel should be one of the most fun bands to play at Brudenell Social Club this week, try not to miss it! (TICKETS)

Lucy Dacus @ Belgrave Music Hall, Thursday 6th June

Lucy Dacus is one of the most talented young singer-songwriters in rock and indie music right now – gifted with a powerful voice, she conveys emotions and uses words in a way that not many artists can. Her album Historian from 2018 was named Best New Music here at TSP, next to her brilliant collaborative effort with Phoebe Bridgers and Julien Baker, boygenius. Lucy Dacus is an artist that we can’t recommend enough to see live, so grab your tickets while they’re still here! (TICKETS)

A.A. Bondy @ Brudenell Social Club, Thursday 6th June

Returning after eight years of absence with his new album Enderness, the American artist A.A. Bondy (Auguste Arthur Bondy) found a new place for music in his life. Using alluring electronics as well as beautiful acoustic guitar arrangements, he brought a new life to what everyone thought was already gone. If you’re looking for a truly heartfelt performance this week, then don’t forget to be at Brudenell on Thursday night. (TICKETS)
