PREVIEW: Gigs of the Week in Leeds, 13th-19th April

Nina Nesbitt @ The Wardrobe, Sunday 14th April

Nina Nesbitt’s catchy pop hooks and straight-forward lyrics have clearly been the key to the artist’s success. However, Nesbitt’s road to recording her second album The Sun Will Come Up, The Seasons Will Change (2019) wasn’t easy, with industry pressure and blown-up expectations sometimes being too great of a struggle. Fortunately, Nesbitt didn’t give up and is now touring on the UK including Leeds, so come to see her live at The Wardrobe this Sunday. (TICKETS)

Lucy Rose @ City Varieties, Tuesday 16th April

Inspired by musicians such as Laura Marling, Neil Young and Joni Mitchell, Lucy Rose is a spectacular songwriter who wears her heart on her sleeve. Rose’s music is delicate, emotive, but also incredibly easy to relate to and get lost in. She proved that once again on her latest album No Words Left, which also saw Rose at her most honest and vulnerable. If you have no plans for this Tuesday night, then definitely come to see Lucy Rose play live at City Varieties in the centre of Leeds. (TICKETS)

Joyce Manor @ The Key Club, Tuesday 16th April

Joyce Manor is an American punk rock band whose sharp yet versatile music has found a lot of fans around the globe since their debut in 2012. Their most recent record, Million Dollars To Kill Me (2018) drew on their initial raw sound, but also added other influenced to it, such as pop and indie, making Joyce Manor one of the most interesting punk rock bands on the scene now. Their live show at The Key Club will definitely be a blast, so grab your tickets to see them this Tuesday night! (TICKETS)

The Antlers @ Belgrave Music Hall, Friday April 19th

The Antlers are a Brooklyn-based duo with their musical influences spanning from lo-fi folk, through chamber pop, and electronica. Their unique, uncanny sound has a special quality to it, which reached its height on their now 10-year-old, breakthrough record Hospice from 2009 – an album they’ll be performing acoustically in its entirety on their latest tour. While The Antlers haven’t released any new music in five years, they announced that they did start working on a new record. Come to see The Antlers play live this Friday at Belgrave, you won’t be disappointed! (TICKETS)
