We're back at the Barfly this Friday, with a corker of a line-up to sink your teeth into! Not to mention Bat for Lashes and more the week after...
Aye, it feels like ages since we filled the Barfly with AC/DC songs at 2.30am and two cracking live bands, so let's get going with another!
Four lads from around the perimeter of London. We've a history with Battle, having them support grimester Kano on a bill with iLiKETRAiNS, back at the start of 2005. The band have just finished their debut album and celebrate with this very special club show. Expect cutting guitars, infectious hooks and massive choruses.
DiS staffer John Brainlove turned us on to this one-man pop wunderkind. Effortlessly blending electronics and melody to create a special breed of singer/songwriter. His track 'The Conformist Takes It All' featured on the recent dance_to_the_radio compilation and consequently got mad love on the Drowned in Sound Radio podcast.
