Esteban describe themselves as a really good idea, math rock for people who like a dance. If they sound a lot easier to play than they are then we have done our job properly. Making many notes sound like a great time. They get hot and sweaty whilst relaying our anthems, but look at our faces, we really enjoy it.
A band from Worcestershire who lay down colossal slabs of doom, laced with grunge riffs and a sludgy edge.
The trio have also just released their first full-length album ‘Led By Foxes’ in July and it packs a punch, so get there early to discover these guys.
“Not only do they have the guts to delve into the murky, thundering depths of doom metal, Soden have the power and tight skill to take fierce command of a venue” – Slap Mag
“Cracking riffs and the pacing is great” – When Planets Collide
Black Boxes describe themselves as “Filthy rock ‘n’ roll noise – louder than World War 2“
Worcester band Navajo Ace formed in 2016 and are quickly garnering themselves a reputation as an interesting underground band that make music with power and soul. The band combine a broad spectrum of influences, breathing new life into a sound somewhere between the grittier end of 90s college alt rock, shoegaze and Emo before it became a dirty word.
FIVE TURNINGS EP REVIEWS:
“ Lyrically intelligent and engaging throughout, there is much to enjoy here: American 90’s Emo in the Texas Is The Reason vein, with added walls of shimmering shoegaze guitars. Infectious and richly harmonic college rock, this is stuff that lingers on after listening, and that – you can hope – promises much more to come. “ SLAP Magazine, August 2017
“ The EP is a strong statement of intent, the blend of Emo and Indie Rock is perfect. Navajo Ace are a bright spark in the current UK new music scene. Keep your eyes out for these guys, they’re going to be huge…” AltDialogue.com, August 2017
“ Navajo Ace have begun to carve a name for themselves with their soulful and layered indie rock sound. They use guitars, drums and the human voice and maybe some good old fashioned, gods-honest blues harp. They write songs that are about everything and about nothing..something that actually shines like a lamp in the whistling dark.” louderthanwar.com, August 2017
A couple of times a year 3 local musicians come together to play ummm……well, Not even brownfield know that. Brownfield have been described as the marmite of Worcester. While certainly not being anywhere on the jazz improv scale they allow their surroundings, the weather and their current state of mind to influence whatever might come out that day. Perhaps in a dark room with no spectators they would choose to sit in contemplative silence. But with no one there to see it who could say it ever happened. Every brownfield show will never happen again.
