Punchy verses give way to a soaring chorus, the sort that yearns for a thousand phone screens to be raised in a backlit salute of indie rock solidarity.
Since completing their line up in 2016, Black Cats and Magpies have established themselves as one of the Midlands most promising prospects. Having already earned comparisons to the likes of Foals, Catfish and the Bottlemen and The 1975, it’s clear that the band’s own brand of upbeat indie anthemia has seen their fan-base flourish.
Having already racked up multiple support slots with indie legends like The Magic Gang & Sheafs, the band are making all the right moves. And while the release of The Quarry EP certainly earned Black Cats both critical and fan acclaim, it’s their incendiary live shows that continue to turn heads and win hearts across their native Nottinghamshire. The most recent of which, a chaotic and sweat-soaked affair at Nottingham’s Bodega, sold out weeks in advance, and speaks volumes to the bands burgeoning popularity.
Who's joining us next weekend then? After a year away, we're raring to open the #BeatTheStreets doors once again! As always, we have a superbly talented line-up of local musicians in a jam packed schedule all-day Sunday. Tickets: https://t.co/gqzzP6np9A 📸 @Jake_Haseldine https://t.co/q9dYTDCEtl
