In­die fans will en­joy a seat at Thrones gig

Hayes FM pre­sen­ter Hughie Dixon re­views the live band scene

Harefield Gazette - - LEISURE -

ALL the way from Read­ing come Thrones who are set to play at The Crown and Treaty pub on Ox­ford Road, Uxbridge this Fri­day 3rd of June.

Thrones are a duo con­sist­ing of Lon­nie Storey (vo­cals\gui­tar) and James Car­ragher (drums and sam­ples).

Their mu­sic will please ar­dent in­die fans be­cause it is ex­actly that. How­ever, the sam­pling and at­mo­spher­ics within adds a cer­tain je ne sais quoi that broad­ens the al­ready up­lift­ing sound­scape im­mensely and sits nicely as a foun­da­tion layer for a dec­o­ra­tively lu­cid de­lay gui­tar.

Oc­ca­sion­ally the lis­tener is lulled by an un­prece­dented, or at least un­ex­pected resur­gence of 80’s pop. What­ever it is that Thrones pos­sess it has, in essence, a wel­come fa­mil­iar­ity wo­ven into it’s originality. www.sound­ wearethrones­mu­sic

Sup­port comes in the shape of the solo singer/song­writer known only as West­ley plus an­other act that is, as yet, un­con­firmed. It’s free en­try to the Crown and Treaty be­fore 10pm and just £5 af­ter.

The live mu­sic starts at 11pm and there is, as usual, Yuck DJ Steven to take you through un­til about 3am.
