This Sunday The Wave Maiden invite you to forget the impending Monday blues and finish your weekend off in style. They will be hosting a special show with Exploder Than You, Ko_Plune, The Yacht Club and Natalie Evans in The Super Acoustic Tour. The Show will be a mere £5 entry on the door with all ticket sales going straight to the bands.
Brighton based trio Billy, Hayman and Weezey are better known as scrappy math-rock band Exploder Than You. They described their music as “Made with real fruit juice and a sprinkle of sadness.”
Ko Plune are an alternative band based in Southampton that features, Carl Edwards (Guitar), Jack Hill-Jones (Bass), Alex Tobin (Drums) and their newest member Annabel Thornton (vocals and keys). Twelve months after releasing Auditory Atlas the band have been working on new material that we should hopefully hear at the show.
The Yacht Club is an electric rock outfit, started in 2013 by Marcus Gooda (Vocals, Guitar, Bass and Keyboards), Alexander Esp (Drums, Keyboards, Piano, Percussion), Sam Rose (Guitar) and Jack Holland (Backing Vocals).
The singer-songwriter from London, Natalie Evans, is a dab hand on the strings and it is easy to make comparisons to the awesome Joanna Newsom. Especially on her track ‘Under The Moon.’ In a recent interview, Natalie stated, “I recently discovered Active Child and I really love how the harp is combined with electronics. It was an exciting discovery as it’s something I’m trying to do at the moment with some of my songs.” You’ll be able to hear the results for yourself this weekend!
Sadly I’m unable to make this gig and I’m pretty gutted about it. After listening to all of the artists on the bill, I believe that this could be one of the best and most understated gigs to be held in Portsmouth in a long time.
