The High Society & Don't Start Feeling All Romantic Present...
Junktion 7, Canning Circus
Fri 26th May. 8pm-late
volcano! are quite simply one of the best bands in the world right now (no lie). They're the first 'rock' band on the Leaf Label and the current critical vocabulary quite simply doesn't do them justice. But that doesn't stop reviewers trying...
'What volcano! have achieved in simple terms, is to create the most forward-looking, genre-eschewing, sense-battering album I've honestly ever heard.' DrownedinSound 10/10
'This is insanely ambitious, wholly psychotic, completely overwhelming music' Harp Magazine
'Volcano!'s febrile super-proficient explosions and switchbacks are a vocabulary of their own' The Wire
'(volcano!) sweep varying styles and moods together like dry leaves before setting them ablaze' Pitchfork
Tiger MCs craft delightful pop ditties that combine lofi (Herman Dune/The Mountain Goats), hip-hop (cLOUDDEAD/Buck 65) and a sugary sweetness that'll make you grin from ear to ear.
Making quite a name for herself in Nottingham, Felix's music is alarmingly singular and intensely personal. Fans of Regina Spektor or Cat Power will know the sort of auterish briliance of which I refer.
