cambridge // Fists to play Cambridge
Fists have announced a Cambridge date, they’ll play the Corner House on August 14th.
The lo-fi Nottingham outfit recently released their debut full length LP ‘Phantasm’ earlier this month, check out our review of it here.
Fists’ unique DIY sound is informed by The Breeders, Yo La Tengo, The Monks, Thee Oh Sees, Jonathan Richman & The Modern Lovers, Daniel Johnston and much more. In 2012 Fists were invited by Obits (Sub Pop) to join them on their sold out East Coast US tour.
Support comes in the form of both Model Village and The Centimes. Model Village are an Adult-Orientated Pop outfit who live on the Eastern side of Great Britain. They were formed in 2008 by people who are, or have been, in Econoline, Fuzzy Lights, Slowgun, Hidden Messages, Hey Colossus, EYE HAI, Jet Johnson, etc. but manage to sound like none these. Instead they’re attempting to perfect pop music suitable for grown-ups, the group aim to combine their love of jangly pop like Camera Obscura, the darker side of folk as exemplified by Nina Nastasia and the slick sounds of ‘Rumours’-era Fleetwood Mac. The Centimes are a far out three-piece-multi-harmonic-sepia-toned-rainbow-boned group from Cambridge
