On 23rd June, Native People will be heading to The Joker, Brighton for a headline show with support from Sahara, Dance a la Plage and Fabrics.
Opening the night are Fabrics, an anthemic indie pop outfit from Basingstoke. Despite only forming 3 months ago, the band have received plays from BBC Introducing and Amazing Radio, as well as supporting Marsicans and announcing their debut tour. Listen to debut single ‘Beachhead‘.
Dance a la Plage, as well as having one of the coolest names in indie music, possess a sound reminiscent of Circa Waves and Peace. They will be playing second on at this show and I’m extremely excited to see what they bring to the stage. You can listen to new single ‘2 2 2‘.
Next up are Sahara, a Brighton/London quintet. Drawing influence from Foals amongst others, this act have been championed by their local BBC Introducing Show, being invited on to play a live session.. Sahara’s math rock sound will be the perfect sound to your summer and you should really go see them at this gig. Listen to single ‘Green Light‘.
Headliners Native People are really a force to be reckoned with right now. They are currently touring, having played venues like The Garage, London, Nottingham’s Bodega and Bath’s Moles Club. The band are the perfect combination between serious indie rock and dancy pop and will be heading for festivals for years to come. Despite the fact they are still young (the oldest member being 22), the band are hotly tipped for success, having gained accolades such as Record of the Week for BBC Introducing in Kent (their home county) or Discovery of the Week for Amazing Radio. Listen to single ‘Don’t Save Me‘.
