BRUNCH + MODERN RITUALS (JOINT HEADLINE) + COFFEE BREATH + LAST LIGHT
London quartet Brunch play guitar based pop songs. Blogs use the word ‘pavementesque’ to describe their sound. Formed in late 2014, they’ve self-released an EP, toured the east cost of the states, changed members, and released some more music: some via Fierce Panda, some via a split with Carseat Headrest. The band have just released their debut album Big Water via Hanger Records.
Modern Rituals are a four-or-five-person band from Bristol and London. With backgrounds in hardcore and post-rock, they play heavy-ish music influenced (in the main) by North America’s rich tradition of noisy guitar mess, from Neil Young on in.
In 2016 they released debut EP Stranger Culture, receiving attention from the likes of DIY and Upset, with opener ‘Scrump’ being played on BBC Introducing. Their two latest tracks, ‘Muttering’ and ‘Protrusion’, are set for release on an upcoming split with friends Brunch, on the Brighton-based Sonic Anhedonic label. They’ve made ears ring on a string of self-organised tours across the UK, as well as garnering support slots with larger acts including Cymbals Eat Guitars, Gold Class, Nothing, Mothers and band favourites Pile.
