FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Saturday 22 February, Doors 7.30pm
Trestle Arts Base, Russet Drive, St Albans AL4 0JQ
Tickets: FREE (Donations welcome)
February’s Live Music Project Gig, takes place on Saturday 22, we are thrilled to be joined by New Soul Rebel, The Metatrons, Branded Jacks and Emma McGrath the doors open at 7.30pm and as always this is a FREE event.
Headlining this month are New Soul Rebel, described as a hidden gem in the St Albans music scene. They are a band that over the past 12 years have quietly emerged. Famed for playing songs that ring with angered passion and energy, their unique three-piece blend of soulful indie, emotionally charged guitars, fused with sub bass undertones are a throwback to the more stripped back sounds of bands like The Jam and The Police that have apparently left audiences dumfounded with awe.
Also performing are The Metatrons; described as ‘delectable skewed fuzz-pop’ this four piece from Hitchin and St Albans formed in 2009. Citing their musical influences as 80’s noise pop with tunes (Jesus and Mary Chain, Primitives) and the punk/new wave that proceeded it (Blondie, Ramones, The Damned, 999, X-Ray Spex) – all covered with a nice gooey layer of 50’s bubblegum pop with a 60’s Spector-ish glint in its eye. Their stomping rhythms, buzzing guitars, big hooks and hollered vocals are guaranteed to go down a treat with any audience.
Branded Jacks are a three piece band from St Albans bringing a combination of Mumford and Sons, Lumineers and Bastille influenced music to your ears.
Also playing is 14 year old singer songwriter Emma McGrath. Emma’s ‘earthy and soulful sound’ reaches way beyond her years, having already played at gigs and festivals all over the county, we are sure that she is one performer to watch for the future.
