Today, our new music spotlight is on The Goa Express

Location: MANCHESTER/TODMORDEN

Line-up: James Clarke (Guitar, Vocals), Naham Muzaffar (Bass), Joey Stein (Guitar, Vocals), Joe Clarke (Keys) Sam Launder (Percussion)

About: “Unstoppable new wave rhythm, shudders with abrasive guitars, swirling psych -laden keys and vocals that sneer with the spirit of seizing the day while everything is falling apart around you. Their sound may rustle with the ghosts of acts like The Stooges, Psychedelic Furs and contemporaries like Shame, but the Goa Express possesses youthful energy, ever-evolving sound and northern spite, all of their own.”

What Hidden Herd say: ‘The Day’ kicks off with an explosive British energy, immediately grabbing listeners with tastes of of nostalgic punk and garage rock to raise the heart rates of the UK in droves.

For fans of: Shame, The Velvet Underground
