Wales Uber Alles @ The Lexington, Feb 28th.


What? Threatmantics + The Joy Formidable + Cate Le Bon

I’ve picked out these artists as highlights from night 2 of this Welsh talent showcase presented by Swn festival, Kruger magazine and Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens. A quick break down:

Threatmantics – Alt-folk, alt-rock and weird alt-country. For fans of: Super Furry Animals.

The Joy Formidable – MusicMule favourites, wonderful soaring rock songs built around Ritzy’s scratchy guitar and vocals and a tight rhythm section. For fans of: Interpol, School of Seven Bells, Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

Cate Le Bon – made her name last year being the female voice of Gruff Rhys and Boom Bip’s Neon Neon last year. Solo she sings in Welsh and English. Sweet melodies, blunt delivery apparently. For fans of: Laura Marling, Gruff Rhys.

When? Saturday, Feb 28th.

Where? The Lexington, Islington.
