THIS FEELING: THE SHIMMER BAND
"We are living in a world where Guitar Music has been marginalised so what This Feeling is doing at the moment is vital." This is just one of the motivations behind one of the UK's biggest rock'n'roll club nights.
Championing 100% guitar-led music it's a showcase for the bands of the future. Acts such as Cabbage, Sisteray, and Dantevilles have played. Whilst mixing in DJ sets which celebrate the genres unbridled force. It's even become a common hang out for rock royalty in the form of Kasabian and even the Gallagher brothers (separately of course).
Headlining are Bristol four-piece The Shimmer Band. Their sprawling psychedelic throwback is electric, and their tracks burst with the same euphoria and carefree abandon that had garnered attention from Clash who premiered their single, Sunkick. Sunny and upbeat, this power pop anthem is the perfect summer soundtrack. A gospel choir fade out can never go wrong.
