On Friday 6th July we’ll be bringing down the house at Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen with a night of incredible up and coming talent for Club CloseUp in association with Jägermeister. Get ready to rock as our talented line up perform their future anthems for you.
Headliners for the night, Himalayas, come from South Wales and describe themselves as an indie/garage band. If you’re a big fan of the Arctic Monkeys and the like, then you’ll want to keep an eye on these guys. They’ve been working incredibly hard since their debut in 2015, having played all across the nation, even making it stateside to SXSW festival. Their track ‘Thank God That I’m Not You’ is awash with sweltering guitar riffs and pulsating drums that will get your hands clapping and your head rocking. Their most recent release, ‘If I tell you‘ errs on the heavier side of the genre, full of energy and tight hooks, and the most captivating middle-8 that you’ll be chanting for days afterwards. You can tell Himalayas’ heart and soul goes into everything they do and they’re known to put on an energetic and awe-inspiring set, leaving you wanting more.
Also joining us are Stevenage lads, WASTE, who are no stranger to performing live having played nationwide and all along the festival circuits alongside the likes of The Horrors and Slaves. Their first demo released ‘Blow’ racked them up over 20,000 Soundcloud streams through organic buzz alone, and their following has been growing ever since. Expect aggressive strumming of the best kind, their music is heavy and powerful with riffs for days. They’re a similar vibe to Royal Blood which is just as well as their debut EP ‘Waste’ was produced by Tom Dalgety who also produced the aforementioned’s self-titled mercury nominated album. WASTE’s music is addictive with tracks such as ‘Behind the Trigger’ and ‘Thunder’ which lives up to its name in being thunderous complete with an unforgettable guitar solo – one you’ll want to see live.
Newcastle band FEVA will be openers for the night, an ambitious foursome who fit the bill perfectly with their fast-paced indie anthems. They’ll get your heart pounding and ears ringing with their ardour as evident in the likes of ‘Blind’, which has had over 114k streams on Spotify is strong and sharp. More recently they gave us ‘Makin’ Waves’, a more upbeat, irresistible number that truly captivates that Summer feel. the band have said, “The song is about doing what you want to do and breaking away from what society tells you to do, to not be afraid of breaking away from that and in sense, make your own waves.” Get down for doors and get ready to rock.
