Stand Atlantic Sunday 28th October at Banquet Records, 5:00pm Just after the release of their debut album, the Australian trio Stand Atlantic visit the shop for the first time for a Sunday in-store set. They're following on from their 2017 Sidewinder EP and are freshly signed to Hopeless Records. These are great pop-punk charged tunes for the fans of State Champs, Like Pacific, Neck Deep and Seaway. “Skinny dipping can be seen as an innocent thing you do for fun,” explains singer Bonnie Fraser. “But at the same time, you’re naked and vulnerable and exposing yourself to anything in there. There are things in life I sometimes feel are either unimportant or something I shouldn’t be talking about. It can be so isolating to be truly honest, but to have people accept you is so freeing.” In-store Grade B. Priority will be given to anyone who orders a copy of Skinny Dipping from us. CD | LP New In
Young Romance Tuesday 6th November at Banquet Records, 6:00pm Celebrating the release of their new album, Young Romance play in the shop. Don't Look marks the second full length release from the indie-pop duo that follows on from their 2016 debut full length Another's Blood. They've had a busy couple of years since, heading out on tours with the likes of The Wedding Present and The Primitives. We're super excited to be releasing their album and having them play in the shop again. Recorded in a studio on an island in the Thames, the second Young Romance record sees the band experimenting with a more visceral and raw sound. Written primarily in their West London rehearsal space, the songs aim to capture the high energy of New York punk and the pop sensibilities of 60's girl groups. In-store Grade B. Priority will be given to anyone who orders a copy of Don't Look from us. CD | LP New In
Richard Neale Wednesday 14th November at Banquet Records, 6:00pm Just before the release of his new EP, Richard Neale plays live in the shop. He plays a splendid mixture of classical-electronic tracks with folky / post-rock influences. Come and check him out as he plays live in support of his new Growth + Decay EP. In-store Grade C, come on down. Priority will be given to anyone who orders a copy of Growth + Decay from us.
