Colenso Parade like all the best bands are a tight arse gang of old friends. Their soulful indie exudes romance, melodies and attitude with nods to the classic song writing partnerships and a majority share of home made originality. Their storytelling is brimming with blue eyed romance, jaded heartbreak and wry observations. Plaudits from institutions as NME, AU Magazine, Radio 1, ATL and Hotpress Magazine suggest these catchy tunes are not to be ignored!
Since the New Year Before Machines have been on the ascent, seizing attention of local press like an intensity XII tsunami.
Before Machines have been likened to Q and not You, Cursive, Fugazi and Jetplane Landing. They have been described as... "glorious pop meets rock", "raw, honest and exhilarating... fully formed and ready for a proper assault on hearts and minds."
[b:7c6c85d520]The Key Of Atlas[/b:7c6c85d520]
After a fantastic performance at BBC ATLs Take Back The City Hall with Oppenheimer, Mojo Fury, A Plastic Rose and The Benjamins The Key Of Atlas are bursting onto the Belfast music scene. A young group of punks they're sure to impress if this is the first time you've seen them. Impressed the balls off me any ways.
Why don't Colenso play Sugerhill Gang I wana play Daniel O Donnell so that Dolphin Bomber might come alone(DB I'm on your side btw. I think your awesome). Actually Cutaways played Dizzy Rascals Dance Wiv Me last month so you better do a pop cover.
For those of you thinking of coming here's a taste of some stuff I'll be playing along with more well known shizz from 9pm-bands finish(it's gets a lot louder after the bands):
School Of Language-Rockist
Girls-Lust For Life
The XX-Basic Space
Fleet Foxes-White Winter Hymnal
Mumford And Sons-Winter Winds
Animal Collective-Strawberry Jam
Passion Pit-Sleepy Head
The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart-Young Adult Friction
Altogether it's a nice mix of chilled-mental alternative music.
I said that to Mark when we met about Skinny Love, that it was a dump and that's why I love it and he totally agreed. U feel like u can spill a drink and noone gives a fuck which creates a relaxed atmosphere. Pure undaground dive that feels like a house party with a bar. Very much looking forward to the night.
