Well done if you’re taking part in dry January and therefore trying your best to stay in, we however are not, so on Saturday night we headed out to the This Feeling ‘Big in 2015’ night at the Macbeth to check out three new bands…oh and have a little dance too!
First up was young Bristol band The Jacques, their catchy indie tunes impressed Libertines drummer Gary Powell so much he decided to sign them to his label – the dueling guitars and Barat style vocals from the lead singer have already drawn a few comparisons – and it’s not just the Libertines these boys reminded us of but of quite a few early/mid 2000’s bands, we reckon the next generation of indie kids are gonna love ’em.
Up next was Billy Lockett, a singer/songwriter/guitarist/pianist who played indie ballads reminiscent of Tom Odell, his strong soulful vocals seemed to be a hit with the crowd, we even spotted a few air grabs happening during some of his more woeful tunes. If you’re a fan of acoustic tunes full of sentiment then definitely check Mr Lockett out!
Finishing off the live music were London band Storms, playing a mix of grunge and shoegaze their sound is loud and powerful but we couldn’t help feeling they lacked charisma on stage to make them stand out…don’t let us influence you though 😉
After the bands the This Feeling DJ’s had us reminiscing with some indie classics, check out their listings here! http://www.thisfeeling.co.uk/club/
