ADVERTISMENT

The weight of expectation must be lying very heavy on the shoulders of Marmozets. Having burst onto the scene with their magnificent debut album The Weird and Wonderful in 2014, they have been absent for nearly 2 years following Becca's recovery from a serious knee injury. It now transpires that they have not been idle and that this has not been downtime. A new album is recorded and ready for release, a new single premiering on Radio 1 and an expansive second tour already announced for October. The stage is set for the return of one Britain's most exciting bands.

First up on the stage in the Arts Club Loft are Strange Bones who, from their shirts bearing the phrase 'Theresa is a terrorist' to their electrifying lead vocalist, are unashamedly in your face. The sound is a blend of the heavier end of British indie, with a Clutch-esque groove and swagger and a political edge . Although at first the crowd seems unsure what to make of them, they soon come around and by the end everyone is transfixed. This is a band you cannot take your eyes off and a real act to watch out for.
