It’s difficult to sum up a band like Husky Loops, they merge together multiple genres within their music: sampling, electronic elements, aspects of rock, pop and hip-hop with a mixture probably every other genre you can think of. After releasing their debut album, I Can’t Even Speak English, just over a month ago, the band kicked off their tour at Jimmy’s in Manchester, flooding the room with their eclectic sound and infectious energy.
Having finished recording their debut album last week, The Howl And The Hum headed on tour and on Friday came to Manchester for a sold-out show at The Deaf Institute with support from Leeds-based Talk Boy. The set combined older releases with new tracks and other unreleased songs which will be set to feature on the new album, hooking the crowd from the very start until the closing sing-along.
The whole of the UK fell in love with Peaky Blinders when it first aired in 2013, and six-years on, lovable Brummie gangster Thomas Shelby has become a cult icon, while flat caps and sharp suits are becoming an accepted fashion statement- even on a casual day. Multiple events have cropped up over the years and it was about time for The Legitimate Peaky Blinders Festival to arrive and celebrate the show.
What’s one of the last places you expect to see a music festival? A disused church in Blackburn, maybe? Well, although the venue is unexpected, Confessional Festival brought amazing music to Holy Trinity Church this weekend and the beautiful interior, high ceilings and stained glass windows, decorated in line with the rainforest theme, only added enormity to the weekend.
Celebrating the release of their latest EP, Dantevilles welcomed everyone to The Eagle Inn on Saturday night for a sold-out show.
