In association with Jägermeister, Club CloseUp at the Hoxton Square Bar + Kitchen is set to warm your body and mind with an incredible line up of artists on the 30th November.
Glasgow is renown for producing some incredible artists over the years and The Ninth Wave are another of the city’s finest. Their music is dreamy goth pop meats new wave 80s indie, and as you’d expect, the resulting sound is unique, ambitious, bold and brilliant. Packed to the rafters with riffs, The Ninth Wave are the kings and queens of euphoric harmonies with co-lead vocalists Elina and Haydn’s vocals syncing together perfectly, and contagious lyrics as expertly exampled in ‘New Kind of Ego’ with the ascension of the words “Did you forget to tell me?” accompanied by raucous guitars. Their most recent release ‘Sometimes the Silence is Sweeter‘ is a distinct and powerful track that will sound incredible up on stage. The band have had support from Spotify who put them on the ‘Best of the Indie list 2017‘ playlist as well BBC Introducing, Wonderland, Dork and many more, and we can’t wait for them to headline for us.
Also joining us are Tin Pigeons, an indie-folk duo from Uppingham who have earnt praise from Steve Lamacq, Greg James, Huw Stephens and many more. Over the past few years, they’ve been putting the hard work in to bring us their joyful sounds and have amassed over a million streams on Spotify.
‘Sirens‘ from their debut EP ‘Sparks‘ is a jaunty little number that’ll have you tapping your toes, and ‘Always the Sun‘ will give you that summer feeling with its dreamy guitar sounds, and funky bass lines. ‘Wild‘ will have you clapping along to its infectious beat whilst ‘Home‘ will make you want to wave your hands in the air like you just don’t care. With music as enjoyable and energetic as this, we know you’re in for a treat.
First up on stage on the night will be Londonites Hot Dreams, bringing their atmospheric sound alive through shimmering guitars and rolling percussions. Their debut ‘Plungepool‘ was an instant hit fuelled with guitar crescendos and a dark-indie-pop sound, ending on a spine-tingling acapella. Their follow-ups, ‘Will You Dive‘ and ‘Another Night‘ are equally as alluring so it’s no surprise that they’ve been picked up by the likes of Annie Mac and Radio X. Their music is a beautifully crafted art and fits perfectly to the bill.
