PREVIEW: Gigs of the Week in Leeds, June 9th-June 15th

Club Kuru @ Headrow House, Saturday 9th June

London based five-piece Club Kuru dropped their debut album Giving In this year, and they’re coming to Headrow House this week to share their freshly released, psych-rock songs with the Leeds crowd. It ought to be yet another intimate night at a venue which Club Kuru should find just perfect for delivery of their hazy, Tame Impala-esque tunes.

Big Ups @ Brudenell Social Club, Sunday 10th June

Big Ups formed in Brooklyn in 2010 and since then three full-length albums, the latest one being Two Parts Together from earlier in 2018. Their heavy, post-hardcore sound is mixed with an array of different genres and influences, making Big Ups a truly interesting act to watch. This Sunday they’re coming down to the Brudenell, and it should be a treat for any rock music fan.

Jay Som @ Brudenell Social Club,  Monday 11th June

Melina Duterte started working under the artistic pseudonym Jay Som in 2015. A couple of years later, the Los Angeles based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist emerged from the DIY scene with her truly spectacular debut album Everybody Works last year. In 2018, she’s touring around Europe, the UK and the United States, playing her infectious and intimate blend of dream pop and indie rock. Be sure to be at Brudenell Social Club this Monday evening for a gem of a gig!

Waxahatchee @ Brudenell Social Club, Tuesday 12th June

Another amazing artist to visit Leeds this week is Katie Crutchfield, a veteran of the indie music scene, who’s bringing her solo project Waxahatchee to Brudenell Social Club on Tuesday. Her latest release Out In The Storm turned out to be a truly delightful record, with youthful energy and joyous tunes spread all around it. At the same time, Crutchfield’s songwriting is sharp and can convey emotions in the most touching way, coated with a lively modern rock touch. It is yet another show not to be missed this week.

Preoccupations @ Brudenell Social Club, Wednesday 13th June

Canadian post-punk four-piece Preoccupations are known for their dark sound and darker lyricism, as well as for being one of the best current guitar bands. They have released three albums to date, each of them better than the one before, with New Material from 2018 also being their most accessible one. Preoccupations are innovative and impressive, and a must-see live act which guarantees unpredictable and unforgettable moments.
