The Scuttlers (Debut Performance) live at The Louisiana, Bristol. Saturday, 20th January 2024
with support from Townhouses + Kibbo Kift + Myer U Clark
Myer U Clark:
Myer U Clark is a Devonian Bristol-based singer-songwriter and a melody fanatic. An obsessive of old English folk tunes and PC Music equally, he has a penchant for the emotional and the absurd; especially in folk and theatrical musical environments. With conscientious vocals overlaid on intricately fingerpicked guitar melodies, his work has drawn comparisons with the likes of artists like Townes Van Zandt and Nick Drake.
Kibbo Kift, a Bristol quartet recently formed on the back of projects by Isaac Mackenzie. Inspired by artists such as Sonic Youth, Fontaines DC and The Brian Jonestown Massacre, a 90s lofi feeling paired with undertones of raw noise and Shoegaze sounds.
Townhouses are fans of the obscure, machine learning, and men in suits channelling their male rage into a beautiful mess of post-punk, shoegaze, and psychedelia they call ‘egg punk’. With sold out shoes in the Bristol and London gig circuit, they are on the verge of releasing their debut EP as well as two music videos to accompany it.
The Scuttlers are a 4 piece alternative rock band deeply inspired by the recent windmill Brixton scene. Their influences range from Jeff Buckley to Black Midi, however, the sound they cultivate pushes between most genres going. They focus heavily on the live performance: keeping elements of their set improvised and letting their eccentric frontman roam free. The goal of the Scuttlers is to take more obscurely used techniques and sounds and blend them into more traditional song structures to make something altogether new.
Show starts at 7:45pm.
