Kevin Parker’s psychedelic rock gang are coming back to London early next year for a huge show, where you’ll hear epic workouts from their new Top Five album ‘Currents’, 2012’s excellent ‘Lonerism’ and their debut long-player ‘Innerspeaker’, which first set out their woozy world of driving, fuzz-encrusted, psychedelic rock and tripped-out pop and nodded to the likes of Blue Cheer, Dungen and Cream. Very groovy, maaan.
They’re back! After another long, long hiatus and a line-up change, Kele Okereke's emotional post-punks have finally reconvened for their fifth album. A decade after their stunning debut ‘Silent Alarm’, it’s anyone’s guess what they’ll sound like: their last LP 'Four' took in indie-disco and synthpop as well as hard grunge and blues riffs. But we’ve no doubt at all that they still know how to put on a frenetic performance. This intimate live show in Hackney will be your first chance to hear the band’s new sounds in their home town.
