A first hometown headline show from KYANOS rounded off another awesome Washing Machine night at The Hunter Club on Saturday (3rd November).
The first band of the night were the Ipswich-based Groff, who brought their fun indie pop-like sound to the Hunter Club stage for the first time. Their tracks like the upbeat Beaches kicked off the night well. More gigs together will see Groff blossom into a powerful indie outfit.
Loved across the region especially in their hometown of Cambridge, Lemondaze smashed their set with their unique shoegaze-grunge sound which reverberated around the room. Their passion for the music really shone through with their intense guitar-driven instrumentals and powerful inimitable vocals.
The Catch were on their usual top form with a rock-heavy set full of their best tracks and songs from their new How It Seems EP. The trio are one of the best live acts in the region and this showed with their polished set which featured hits like Sort It Out and Vexed. The set ended with the high-tempo thrasher Tie Dye leaving the whole room wanting more.
Having only formed late last year, The Glitter Shop returned to the Hunter Club stage with their sleek grunge-pop. Their live performances are energetic and powerful which really connects with any crowd they play to. Throughout their short set, the crowd sang back every word of their tracks like debut single Fizz and the anthemic Moon. More tracks are being written and released, keep an eye out in 2019!
The time had come for KYANOS to grace the stage for the first time as headliners. The psych-groove foursome had the room in the palm of their hands, throwing out Hawaiian leis for all and making everyone dance along to their flawless tracks. Though their setlist remained largely the same as previous sets this year, the band were on top form throughout with their incredibly tight instrumentals and great performances of tracks like Thunder In Japan, Sunrise and Dopamine. This set rounds off an awesome year for group after acclaim from NME and winning the BurySOUND Rising Star award.
