Showcasing the Best New Music, Curating the Classics

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

The Indigo Project @ Brudenell Social Club, Saturday 15th September

The Indigo Project are an indie band which formed in Leeds three years ago, but a lot has changed since the five-piece was taking their first steps just a few years ago. In 2017 they were not only supporting the likes of The DMAs, Ocean Colour Scene and The Sherlocks but also selling out headlining shows at O2 Academy and playing to thousands on the Millenium Square in Leeds. The Indigo Project’s music is loud and guitar-centred, but the band’s pop influences also make it catchy and fun to listen to. Their latest single ‘As Always’ arrived earlier this year – don’t forget to listen to it before coming down to Brudenell this Saturday.

Fizzy Blood @ Brudenell Social Club, Wednesday 19th September

Fizzy Blood are another Leeds-based act playing the Brudenell Social Club this week. They have been described as explosive and catchy, while their music is especially liked for being hook-filled and fun, drawing inspiration from rock’n’roll and combining it with honest and relatable lyrics. During their live shows, Fizzy Blood emanate with positive energy, while the band’s frontman, Benji Inkley, hypnotizes the crowd with his natural charm and charisma. A new face of British rock music and with a new EP Pink Magic out this week, Fizzy Blood are not to be missed and the next chance to see them is as close as this Wednesday night.

They Might Be Giants @ Brudenell Social Club, Thursday 20th & Friday 21st September

They Might Be Giants were formed 36 years ago by John Linnell and John Flansburgh in Brooklyn, New York. Over the years they released 20 albums, their most recent being I Like Fun from earlier this year, and reinvented their sound many times since their debut studio album from 1986. Today, They Might Be Giants are more than just a band, they are a legendary act that managed to inspire fans and create new music over the span of almost four decades, thanks to their forward-thinking approach, but also the ability to stay true to their origins. Alt-rock veterans, They Might Be Giants are popular among people of all ages and from all generations, so if you thought you might not fit in at their gig, you couldn’t be more wrong.
