Thursday February 26th @ The Packhorse, Leeds
GREAT ESKIMO HOAX
Somewhere between the spasmodic mathpop of Youthmovies & the synth-drenched quirkiness of Cats in Paris lie West Midlands trio Great Eskimo Hoax, with vocals at once melodic & shouty cutting through carefully textured guitars, keys and insistent drum pulses.
Intense, danceable, epic: that Forward Russia’s Tom Woodhead has been working as their producer gives an idea as to where they’re coming from, but Minnaars add to that sound an incredible variety through the use of loops, unpredictable structures & duelling synth & guitar.
THE BLACKBIRD APPEAL
Whispered vocals & thick, fuzzy guitars at the front; along with drums cranking the tempo up at the back, eking slices of pop out of a shoegazey-haze.
