PREVIEW: Electric Six and We-Are-Z @ Concorde, 3/12/16

 

The Verse’s Alex Berdugo previews Electric Six and We-Are-Z ahead of their UK Tour to Concorde 2 on the 3rd December.

We-Are-Z are due to take Brighton’s esteemed Concorde 2 by storm on the 3rd of December, supporting the infamous Electric Six on their headline tour. They have already played gigs in the Netherlands and Germany previous to the United Kingdom and will soon be locating to Detroit and Canada. This proves Electric Six’s worldwide notoriety for tongue in cheek, high energy hits.

We-Are-Z, the London, Paris and Toulouse based band are new on the indie-pop scene, bringing forward their own psychedelic twist to the genre. It is thoroughly recommended that you check out the music video for their most recent single Goldigaz, as its intense visual imagery and pace will prepare you for the rest of their album. Animal is a triumph of a debut LP, with thumping tracks such as Knucklehead and the extremely alternative Easy providing something for everyone. They are not only interesting sonically but also in their appearance: each member of the band is eccentric to the last detail, as well as being able to give a unique input to all their songs.

Electric Six are on tour to celebrate Fresh Blood For Tired Vampires, their enigmatic 11th studio album released on the 7th of October. Their return is rich with the vocals of Tyler Spencer who still sings in his trademark style, leading the rest of the band on the musical journey. Standout tracks such as I’ll Be In Touch force you to bob your head to the upbeat rhythm, while The Lover’s Pie is perhaps the band’s funkiest number yet.

Best known for their popular songs Gay Bar and Danger! High Voltage, Electric Six never fail to get the crowd alive and moving. Their upcoming show is guaranteed to get your adrenalin high and speed up your heart rate, with the crowd singing lines such as ‘I’ve got something to put in you’ and ‘I wanna spend all your money at the gay bar’. Watch out, Brighton – Electric Six are back.

Wed Nov 23 , 2016
The Verse’s Matt Austin tells us what he thought of Flume’s gig at Alexandra Palace on the 17th November. So first things first, I am not a flume fan. Aside from a few preliminary streams before the gig, I had never given him much of a listen. So when I […]
