Everything Everything - Cambridge + Southampton Dates
You should all be familiar by now with the latest Manchester-based alt. rock heroes Everything Everything whose debut album Man Alive is ambitious as it is divisive (and brilliant.) Imagine a band who fuse three part harmonies with scalding post-punk guitars; floor-filling bass lines with syncopated rhythms and lyrics about everything from high-school massacres to R&B Lotharios musing on their lot in a post-apocalyptic wilderness… What you probably have is exactly what lead singer, Jonathan Higgs intended to create when Everything Everything began life as Higgs began making music in his bedroom – His one rule, he states “was not to sound like anyone else.” Recently signed to Geffen, 2010 has been quite a year for Everything Everything and 2011 will surely see them achieve even more. En route to the release of their debut album Man Alive they have acquired fans ranging from Zane Low to 6Music’s Marc Riley as well as being Selected for BBC's "Sound of 2010" poll. We wanted to highlight two shows in particular that cater for those not in the capital, as now is most definitely the time to see these guys live whilst they're really buzzing and on form.
Southampton - October 4
After two amazing shows at Hamptons in 2009, the band return to Southampton for a third time, this time at Talking Heads as part of their UK tour in support of the release of Man Alive - your chance to catch them one last time in Southampton in an intimate setting, before they ascend to the huge time.
