DEPARTMENT S - SAT 8TH SEPT - 'FRACTURES' with support from 'GOAN DOGS' and club night til 3.00am
FRACTURES With a frontman oozing charisma and a band as tight as they come, London's HOTTEST property hit Department S. Having already been tipped by NME as ones to watch for this year, the band charged into 2012 at #1 on the Amazing Radio charts with a demo recorded in lead singer Freddie's bedroom - a track which went on to spend over two months at the summit and a performance at HMV's hotly tipped Next Big Thing festival.
See what people have been saying about them.
“That could have easily been the hottest record” ZANE LOWE
"’Ride’ sounds like My Bloody Valentine blended with Radiohead in some kind of sexy orgy, its pretty cool stuff" – LONDON ON THE INSIDE
“’Ride’ certainly doesn’t disappoint – a full-on sleaze-fest of a tune, dripping with that classic quirky British indie sound – like Suede crossed with early Supergrass” – THIS FEELING
“Ride is a mini masterpiece” – GIGWISE
GOAN DOGS “It takes some bands years of gigging to fine- ‐tune the haunting vocals, energetic drums and carve the overall cohesion which these guys nailed in their first attempt Hailing from Bristol the GOAN DOGS are a unique five piece ensemble enamoured with but totally set apart from the cities’ rich musical heritage. Drawing deeply from a vast array of musical and filmic influences they offer a cinematic sound infused with macabre tales to ‘conjure up some eerie, dark and twisted imagery ”
