The cat is well and truly out of the bag. Anti Despair Machine is incredibly excited to be taking its first step into the world of live music, as we bring a trio of amazing new bands to the city of Norwich, with a little help from our friends at Dork Magazine. Keep reading to find out everything you need to know.
Norwich Arts Centre, Saturday 12th May, doors open at 7.30pm.
Heading up the bill are Brighton’s hottest emerging indie juggernauts THYLA. This week saw the launch of their sprawling new single ‘I Was Biting’, capitalising on an exhilarating start to the year that’s seen them named by Radio 1’s Huw Stephens as one of his Alternative Tips for 2018, and spotlighted alongside Pale Waves in NME’s 100 Essential Acts for 2018.
They’re joined by Cambridge scamps Ugly, who take influence from the likes of King Krule and The Buttertones. They’ve played buzzy shows at home and in London, and premiered their recent single ‘Emphysema’ through Dork, which the band describe as a “wheezy single for the Yeezy generation”.
You want more? We got more. Hailing from Bury St. Edmunds, The Glitter Shop dropped their debut single ‘Fizz’ at the end of 2017, three-and-a-half minutes of glistening guitar-pop for fans of Wolf Alice and Turnover. Get down early to see this super promising new outfit.
