Va­ri­ety’s the spice of life at Yuck in­die night

Hayes FM pre­sen­ter Hughie Dixon re­views the live band scene

Harefield Gazette - - LEISURE -

YUCK In­die night at The Crown and Treaty on Fri­day has, as usual, a great se­lec­tion for you to move your body to.

Furs and Masks are a lively bunch with at­ti­tude and style, while sec­ond on the bill Ele­phant have a sam­pled garage-es­que feel against a gui­tar based back­drop. Check out ‘War of The Girls’ on YouTube. It’s free en­try into the Crown and Treaty be­fore 10pm and just £5 af­ter.

Hert­ford­shire four piece in­die rock­ers Cara Cara play The Al­ley Cat, in Den­mark Street, on Satur­day.

Their unique brand of psy­che­delic, echo laden dark­ened bal­lads have a deep, lu­cid and at­mo­spheric air akin to that of Sigur Rós, with dis­tant vo­cal sounds in a sim­i­lar vein to how Fleet Foxes use re­ver­ber­a­tion.

How­ever, their sound is as English as it gets.

Lit­tle Grim share the bill with Cara Cara.

Their well ar­ranged in­die pop songs are filled with riffs, off beats and have that dance­abil­ity fac­tor in bucket loads.

Two other acts, Rolo Wig­wam and Tom Saun­ders, make this a mag­i­cal night in one of Lon­don’s more hap­pen­ing venues.

Be sure to tune into my in­ter­ac­tive HayesFM ra­dio show ev­ery Tues­day at 9pm to hear live and orig­i­nal per­form­ers, plus more lo­cal live mu­sic news.

You can find HayesFM on 91.8FM in Lon­don or glob­ally on www.hayesfm.org.uk.
