Bristol’s “fucking spectacular” (Kerrang!) art-rockers Poisonous Birds spread their wings on new EP Big water, shedding the intense, dystopian timbres of their previous releases and exploring the darker, sensitive corners of their psyches.
“Raging and fragile at the same time” – Kerrang!
Trading electric guitars for thick, gritty analogue synthesisers, the prolific duo are “striding ahead into a sonic field of their own” (Bristol Live Magazine) with the angular, sculptural title track “Big Water”, the abstract and arhythmic “Schwer” and the lulling new single “Little Puzzle”, whose art-house music video premiered on DIY Magazine this month.

HOWARD JAMES KENNY
Many of you will be familiar with Worcester’s HJK for his mesmerising solo performances (and of course his drums in The Broken Oak Duet).
Far removed from his previous acoustic output, his solo show now delves into the realms of electronica and kraut-rock immersed in almost jazz ambience. We are extremely excited to welcome him to the stage for this show.
A pulsating and primal electro industrial-art-beats duo – to whom the idea of a fourth wall between them and the audience is just, frankly absurd – ROSEBUD are probably unlike anything you have ever seen or experienced before. That is unless you spend a lot of time in dimly-lit basement clubs in Berlin. Or you’ve come to one of their shows before. Drawing randomly on a bastardised wellhead of drone, Detroit techno, Chicago noise rock and the filthier end of Krautrock, ROSEBUD drop a fin-de siecle dark electronica love bomb fit for the scorched post-everything End Days.
Somewhat more physical and interactive than your average twiddlers. The apocalypse will be instagrammed.
