Expect jagged post punk, ragged electro pop and a bundle of ramshackle, runaway energy, alongside nods to everyone from Le Tigre to Penetration. Their debut album Shrag was released on WIAIWYA earlier this year and has garnered comparisons to Love is All, Gang of Four, B52s, The Long Blondes and more.
“A spectacularly bitter indie girls-set-on-stun dual vocal attack, in what is one of the better bands to juxtapose schmindie twee and angered literary abstraction since 1990s unsung legends Prolapse.” (The Guardian)
That would be us. Punk rock for girls.
ARTHUR AND MARTHA
Arthur and Martha are an electronic pop duo, by bringing together their rag-tag collection of moogs, melodicas and an antique drum-machine, they pen the songs for the happy robots to dance to. This is a rare live show to support the release of their debut album ‘Navigation’ which will be released on Happy Robots in the spring.
