April

BIG things are coming from Nuneaton quintet April.

Forming just over a year ago, their latest single Ten Miles High fuses Britpop with a much earlier earlier Manchester psychedelic sound.

Riffs and chords reminiscent of Stone Roses take you to Shangri La, meeting a snarl of front-man George Cooke's Gallagher-inspired vocalism - it’s a whirlwind of a trip down memory lane, albeit one you don’t mind visiting time after time.

The lads emulate their heroes so brashly, refreshing in a world in which artists are always trying to be something new, or feigning slight influence. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

With catchy melodies and nostalgic sounds, these boys managed to bag themselves a support slot with The Libertines at The Empire in Coventry, earlier last week and it’s easy to see why.

Catch them on their Feb/March UK Tour at Arts Club, Liverpool 19th February, surely one not to be missed.
