@ Brudenell Social Club, Saturday 2nd February
When Allison Crutchfield and Kyle Gilbride ended their relationship in 2015 after three wonderful albums of skewed emo-tinged indie, everyone assumed that would be curtains for Swearin’. However, they soon reunited in late 2017 to support Superchunk on tour and, last July, they released their fourth studio album in five years, Fall Into The Sun. They’ve always been a great live draw, and with tickets at a tenner, it’ll be a great night at the Brudenell Social Club! (TICKETS)
Sons @ O2 Academy Leeds, Monday 4th February
Renowned for their passionate commitment to touring, spending unusually long periods on the road at a time, Los Angeles’ Rival Sons are a ferociously well-honed live act a decade into their existence. Their fifth studio album Feral Roots was released just last week, and their latest tour swings into Leeds this week! (TICKETS)
@ Mabgate Bleach, Wednesday 6th February
It’s one of the greatest on-going injustices in British indie today that Kagoule aren’t exponentially bigger. The Nottingham trio’s 2015 debut album Urth, and last year’s follow-up effort Strange Entertainment, were filled to the brim with intelligent, tangled variants on indie and math-rock played with intensity and sideways humour, but seem to have gone under most people’s radars. No matter, it’s everybody else’s loss, and you can catch Kagoule for a little over six quid at Mabgate Bleach, a great venue but far too small for a band as dazzling as these. (TICKETS)
Amazons @ The Key Club, Friday 8th February
Dealing in a rollicking combination of garage-rock and power-pop, Reading outfit The Amazons were flavour of the month in the guitar music world a couple of summers ago, with their self-titled debut album breaching the Top Ten in the UK. 18 months on, they’re road-testing new material for what’ll hopefully be a sophomore album in 2019, and you can see it up-close and personal at The Key Club on Merrion Street. (TICKETS)
