OFF THE PLANE straight to the beach: Toronto to Brighton is the furthest distance we've travelled between gigs so far but our sunny three days at the Great Escape made it worthwhile. Thanks to those who took time to come down and write about us. 🎈
One of a few indie bands with a good chance of breaking into the mainstream are Marsicans...reminiscent of the Maccabees, with just the right kind of songs and style to remember the next time around.
DORK asked Oli to pick out some of his favourite artists also appearing at The Great Escape 2018 for a playlist, featuring Superorganism, Jerry Williams, The Howl & The Hum, Mikaela Davis, The Orielles and more.
I think it’s stopped snowing. I don’t know. I’ve been crying under my quilt waiting for some sunshine. But there’s no such thing as global warming...
So, yeah, we had one week to thaw off after our snowy tour and we were on the road to support Feeder, which was kinda surreal, but we had a blast. But that’s it for gigs til festival season, when it’s all about outside stages, warm beers, and checking the weather forecast to see how many ponchos and spare socks you’ll need.
It’s been announcement after announcement for us, with a bunch of festivals, new and previously played, all being announced throughout March and April, and it makes us very excited to be out in Pat with our sunglasses on to protect our eyes from the rain. Notable mention...
DORK FESTIVAL GUIDE: Oli picks his choice of fellow artists performing at The Great Escape Festival, whilst James names the bands he's looking forward to seeing this summer (hint: one starts with 'blae' and ends in 'navon'*) and recalls an odd evening at Glastonbury Festival (official). 🎈
