Today, our new music spotlight is on Sad Boys Club.
Location: Crouch End, London
Line-up: Jacob Wheldon, Tom McColl, Tom Herzberg, Jake Chatterton, Pedro Caetano Leite
About: Sad Boys Club draw on an amalgamation of influences to craft an emotive, inherently ambitious indie-pop sound, reminiscent of The Cure, The War on Drugs and The National, glossed with 1975-esque nostalgia. Existing in various formations since their pre-teen days, the five-piece spent their formative years honing their craft in Bombay Bicycle Club’s shed, experimenting with their hand-me-down equipment. Now, with a bank of electrifying new material ready to be unleashed and an uncompromising sense of identity that far belies their youth, Sad Boys Club are ready to tackle 2018 head on.
What Hidden Herd say: ‘15/01‘s melodic mix of delectable indie and electro-pop has us harking back to our youths; uplifting music that exudes the carefree mindset of Summer. You’ll keep coming back to this one, trust us.
Next show: March 14th – London @ Camden Assembly. Tickets here
