FIRESTATIONS + MUR-MAN + THOSE UNFORTUNATES + BIG SEA CREATURE
Alt-pop stalwarts Firestations top the bill alongside danceable newcomers Murman, the eccentric tour de force that is Those Unfortunates and the brand new project from our friends Sam and Jade (DOLLS / Long Teeth), Big Sea Creature.
After the live music we welcome the first edition of Certified Bangers at Paper Dress to keep you dancing and spilling beer till 3am.
Firestations write lyrical alt-pop songs shot through with joyous surges of collective noise-making and bursts of electronic sound from synths and guitars. They released their second album The Year Dot on Lost Map records last year and are currently working hard on a third.
Mur-Man are a ballsy London based four piece with a ton of attitude, plenty of style and whose influences are as diverse as the personalities that make up the band. They sing about guilt and sex and fetishism and falling in and out of love and all those things that make life ultimately worth living and make indie music you can dance to.
Those Unfortunates wear herringbone coats and oxblood shoes without ever really managing to look rakish. Their songs aim for the wit and warmth of bands like The Kinks and Television Personalities. They are self-deprecating, for the most part, and self-contained. They sound harder than they sound.
BIG SEA CREATURE
Brand new indie-rock project from Sam Asbury and Jade Ellins of Dolls and Long Teeth.
