Bombay Bicycle Club @ O2 Academy, Bristol 12/03

So Long, See You Tomorrow reached No.1 in the UK Album Chart. This is how big these guys are now. Which frankly blows our minds. But hey it’s danceable, shoegaze inspired indie delivered with precision and conviction. No one can really argue too much with that.

The confrontational Swans frontman’s one off solo performance this week offers the chance to hear new brutal and beautiful material while William Basinski will perform extracts from his forth coming album Cascade, yet to be performed live.

Chvrches @ Great Hall, Cardiff 13/03

Lauren Mayberry’s voice and Chvrches beats are such that they demand a live outing to be fully appreciated – speakers turned all the way up, bodies dancing closely and lyrics sung back from the crowd.
