New Slang | The Go! TeamThursday 18th January
21:00 - 02:00
Tickets available from: www.banquetrecords.com
The night before their new album is released The Go! Team play at New Slang.
This will be the band's first New Slang visit and we're excited to have them down to celebrate their new album that follows up from 2015's The Scene Between. Infectious and massive indie-pop tunes that take on a marching-band styled sound on this record, with plenty of soul stomping sounds, hip hop beats and plenty of joy.
Stacking up sousaphones, glockenspiels and steel drums, breakbeats and SEMICIRCLE is a kaleidoscopic cacophony, almost as if the sound itself is bent and refracted in the metallic curves of a trumpet, comforting and intoxicating at the same time. One moment we hear the kids from Detroit channelling Rescue Me’ and ‘SOS’ on ‘Mayday’, a morse-code- inspired soul belter about a love emergency, then there’s Ninja unleashing a volley of verbal stingers on ‘She Got Guns’ or the lo-fi R&B vocal for ‘Chain Link Fence’; SEMICIRCLE brings together unlikely elements to create a euphoric, exhilarating experience.
After the show, it's New Slang as usual where you can expect to hear the likes of The 1975, Foals, The Vaccines, Wolf Alice, alt-J and many more until 2AM.
Times TBC, but we expect doors to be at 9:00pm with The Go! Team on stage at 10:30pm, please check back.
Album + Ticket combos are available from £11.00
