Sad Boys Club
Hailing from Crouch End, Sad Boys Club draw on an amalgamation of influences to craft an emotive, inherently ambitious indie pop sound, reminiscent of The Cure, The War on Drugs and The National glossed with 1975-esque nostalgia. Existing in various formations since their pre-teen days, the five-piece spent their formative years honing their craft in Bombay Bicycle Club’s shed, experimenting with their hand-me-down equipment. Now, with a bank of electrifying new material ready to be unleashed and an uncompromising sense of identity that far belies their youth.
Big on choruses, home-made slogan t-shirts and nervous energy, the last year has seen Belonging branch out from North London bedroom-pop origins to become a fully-fledged live act, supporting the likes of Catholic Action, Wooze, Zooni, Everyone You Know and Misty Miller, as well as playing The Alternative Escape in Brighton in May.
Taking in indie, pop, grunge, electro and folk influences, and drawing comparisons with Foals, Blur, Everything Everything and Wolf Alice, recent single "All I Can Hear" was championed by Radio X's John Kennedy and BBC 6 Music's Tom Robinson, with a new track, "Do Something, Do Anything" set to be released on 23rd August.
