We're two weeks away from By The Sea 2017 so we thought we'd get acquainted with some of the artists who'll be joining us in Margate
The 3rd edition of By The Sea will hit Margate in just two weeks time. 3 days of music, theme park rides, sunshine (hopefully!) and sightseeing.
To get you in the mood, we're turning the spotlight on the artists that fill the bill. Today we’re kicking things off with our Friday night headliners.
WHO: Everything Everything – Manchester indie heroes
LATEST RELEASE: A Fever Dream (2017)
WHAT THEY SAY: “We felt we could experiment more, knowing that people would listen to this record before even seeing these tracks live. Having been in the studio, we’re still working out how to play some songs live. Everyone says their latest record is their best, but this is ours.”
WHAT OTHERS SAY: “They can sneak serious explorations of mental health, of the rise of ISIS, of the political machinations that erode the human connections between us, past their listeners because they have wrapped these high-minded concerns up in a package of eminently re-listenable, deliriously creative pop tunes.” The 405
“This is potent, frequently explosive stuff.” MOJO
“In its subtler, more sophisticated moments, A Fever Dream is an astounding album: anxiety-inducing, perhaps, but also appropriate.” The Guardian
“A Fever Dream is by far the most focused, making good on frontman Jonathan Higgs’ recent claim to NME that the songs “need each other”.” NME
CREDNTIALS: Continually developing and evolving, Everything Everything have moved beyond the indie scene which gave birth to them to become one of the most exciting band’s in the UK.
FOR FANS OF: The Maccabess, Mystery Jets, Wild Beasts
WHY PICK THEM?: They’ve made one of the records of 2017 and this’ll be a rare chance to see them in such an intimate venue before they’re headlining arenas.
