We love all things warm and fuzzy and this line up will leave you feeling just that! Shoe-gazing lullabies that will leave you thinking of days gone by, summers spent in meadows, you know...that jazz. Seriously though it's beautiful!
It Hugs Back
In the first of a double header of shows for us, we're very pleased indeed to present It Hugs Back. Darlings of 6 Music, their touring record speaks for itself. Switching between joyous pop-punk delight and delicate melancholia in a heartbeat, It Hugs Back melt layers of fuzzy vocals and guitars into their reassuring blend of endearing shoegaze and heart-on-sleeves vulnerability.
A marriage of complex musicianship and pop-heavy hooks laden with honest and heart-strung lyrics about being young, reckless and rough around the edges. The video to their first single says it all. Expect to see a buzzing band fresh from a mini European tour.
Shoe-gazing is back, so who better to kick things off than the phenomenal
Fuzz Valentine. Like the South's answer to The Cribs, driving, crunchy guitars are their bread, while infectious melody is their butter.
