THE EARLIES W/ SPECIAL GUESTS
The Earlies are a band that defies easy definition. But it hasn’t stopped people trying. The group, who came to prominence in 2004 with the release of/ These Were The Earlies/, have sent journalists the length and breadth of the English language in search of a description that captures their unique sound. They have been called “woozy cosmic wunderkinds” who play “free-wheeling orch-pop” and have been compared to everyone from Brian Wilson to the Flaming Lips. Between the release of the first record and the recording of the second, the band’s versatility has seen them record with King Creosote, Micah P Hinson and Plan B. It has also seen them develop a mean live reputation, the core four band members growing to a 10-piece to produce one inspiring performance after another.
