Sulk + Fractures live at Blow Up – April 2012

Blow Up’s new monthly West London residency at Ginglik in Shepherd’s Bush continues with live guests this month hotly tipped new bands SULK and FRACTURES with Blow Up DJs Paul Tunkin & Ian Jackson… SULK…. Under the rainy skies of London, the shining sounds of Britpop, Shoegaze and Psychedelia are back in bloom. Locked up in the back room of an east end gallery stirring up 90s inspired sonic harmonies, this five-piece’s influences are less worn on their sleeves, than branded on their hearts. Bands such as The Stone Roses, Suede, Ride and The Verve are wholly evident, but this isn’t nostalgia for old time’s sake. It’s a whitewash of powerful prettiness; with sun-drenched vocals, ethereal guitars and pounding drums, rooted in 90s vibes but with its eyes to the future… “Epic, stadium-indie guitars, baggy beats and trippy lyrics, this Suede-meets-Oasis number sets Sulk far above other 1990s revivalists” The Independent, November 2011
