Nambucca Live presents: Dead Writers (single launch) + Jennings Couch + The Vone + Eyal Pik
June 21, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - June 22, 2019 @ 2:30 am
Nambucca Live presents:
‘Suave and elegant rock’n’roll romance with a suitably sinister edge,
these up and coming superstars will be underground for little longer’ – The Vapour Trail Records/Fanzine
‘The group is so ridiculously close-knit that you’d be forgiven for thinking they were miming’ – Drastic Records
‘Seductive and compelling music, powerful yet delicate. A hypnotic journey’ – Angie Mône (Singer/Songwriter/Musician)
‘This is a band that completely takes you in. They transcend the stage, and it’s alive – it’s exciting’ – 4AM Decisions Music Blog
Dead Writers are as striking and intriguing as their name suggests. Based in London, theirs is an ambitious rock sound defined by layers of dynamic guitars, anthem choruses and compelling vocals. The explosive 5-piece are fast building a reputation for themselves in the capital’s rock music scene, due in no small part to their arresting live performances.
The band’s heady fusion of musical influences draws on the melodic brilliance of Queen, the mystical roar of Led Zeppelin, the glassy melancholy of The Cure and the dark swagger of The Cult. Appropriate to their nome de plume, their identity is greatly shaped by their introspective lyrics, characterised by literary references with an obscure yet approachable appeal, akin to the immersive aura found in the work of Jim Morrison or Nick Cave.
Dead Writers return to Nambucca with this headline show to celebrate the imminent release of their new single ‘She’s All The Animals’, recorded with guest Ben Ellis (Iggy Pop/Swervedriver) on bass guitar.
Born in the wilderness of New York City, raised in rural England and made on the streets of London, Jennings Couch is someone who embraces change. Since writing his first songs at the age of 7, Jennings has gone on to create a unique – and eccentric – pop voice. In the beginning of 2017 after having recorded an album’s worth of music, Jennings began gigging and within three months was on his way to Austin, Texas to perform at SXSW 2017. This was followed by a trip to Chengdu, China to perform at the 2017 Silk Road Indie Music Festival where Jennings won the award for ‘Best Song in Show’.
Live, Jennings Couch employs pitch perfect harmonisations and anthemic arrangements that provide fans with rich and varied soundscapes that compare to the likes of The 1975 and Imagine Dragons. His lyrics deal with a range of philosophical, social and scientific topics from physics to heartbreak and everything in between. With every new release Jennings pushes the envelope further, creating edgy alternative pop music that is worthy of recognition. Whether a result of his influences, travels or tendency towards the obtuse, one this is certain: in an era of copycat faux-musicality, Jennings Couch is a refreshingly unique proposition.
Word up planet Earth! We’re The Vone and we’re gonna give rock a new roll!
We’ve been jamming together since high school lunch times when we lived in Portugal. We became The Vone in December 2016. The band has five key components: Marcelo (lead vocals, guitar, sax), Marek (lead guitar), Jayne (vocals, percussion), Jonny (drums) and Stephens (bass). We’re an international band. Marek and Marcelo met back in Portugal where they grew up, but Marek is Polish and Marcelo is Brazilian-Portuguese. The latest additions to the band, Jonny, Jayne and Stephens are all from different parts of the UK!
Can’t deny that this background provides fresh inspiration, which we believe can and will absolutely shake the music industry in the years to come!
