Tramlines, Sheffield’s best independent festival returns this weekend taking place from the 21st until the 23rd July. Headlined by The Libertines, Primal Scream and Metronomy this metropolitan festival is set to go down a storm. While unfortunately, we’re not able to be there this weekend, here are four bands that if you are going, you shouldn’t be missing!
We Are Scientists
We Are Scientists are by far the funniest band around and now you have the chance to not just take our word for it. Definitely make sure to see them, but not just because they are one of the funniest bands around live, We Are Scientists are genuinely one of the best live bands that you will see this year. The band have consistently banged out indie rock tunes over the past decade including the likes of ‘Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt’, ‘The Great Escape’ and ‘Buckle’.
Manchester based garage-rock come punk band, Spring King’s debut album, ‘Tell Me If You Like To’ which was released a year ago is a banger. The band, originally started as a solo project by frontman Tarek Musa but grew into something much more over time. Earlier this year Spring King toured with Kaiser Chiefs and also headlined their own UK tour before heading out onto the festival circuit for 2017. A busy year for Spring King? Most definitely.
Portsmouth based indie-pop singer/songwriter Jerry Williams whose narrative songs are more than charming. Having recently released her latest single ‘Babe’ just a few days ago, Her EP ‘Let’s Just Forget It’ also won the Best Produced Unsigned release of the year 2016 at the Unsigned Music Awards last year. Just a few days ago, Jerry Williams also released her latest single ‘Babe’ which has a fragile side to it, yet is still powerful throughout.
Not to be confused with Wharves, the Australian band who we interviewed last year. But The Wharves are a three piece from London who we saw supporting Frankie and the Heartstrings a few years back. Fast forward, the band released an album called ‘At Bay’ back in 2014 and their latest single ‘NAZ/My Will’ which showcases their minimal, psychedelic yet haunting sound at its best.
