The intellectual word play behind their name is indicative of the multi-layered musical landscapes that Darlingside craft on their studio recordings. Intricate plucking merges with classical violin and a rich, overlapping cascade of vocals to create songs which manage to haunt and warm the listener in equal measure.
Tickets have been flying out for this year's Rebellion Festival and it's beginning to look like it could be a complete sell out. The festival kicks off on Thursday 4th August and it takes place across a range of Blackpool venues. In anticipation for the event, we've picked our highlights from the first two days of Rebellion 2016.
Despite hailing from Wakefield originally, the link between The Cribs and Leeds is inextricable. Throughout their history, the band have graced most stages across the city and the locals see every show as an opportunity to welcome home some of their own. This weekend presents them with their most glorious opportunity yet, as the band treads the boards in the City’s iconic Millenium Square.
Originally known as The Black Supersuckers, Supersuckers have been a band for almost three decades. Last year's 'Holdin' The Bag' was the band's tenth studio albums and it saw them return to their country style which has often afforded the band commercial success in their recording career.
Sun Kil Moon is the stage name of Mark Kozelek originally formed as a continuation of the Red House Painters catalogue. Kozelek has never played by the rules, summed-up by the fact that one of his albums was entirely composed of Modest Mouse cover songs. This year saw him unleash his eight studio album 'Jesu/Sun Kil Moon'.
Last year marked twenty years since Lagwagon unleashed their third album 'Hoss'. One of the classic nineties punk albums, the release has more than stood the test of time and songs like 'Name Dropping' are as vital now as they were in 1995. 'Hoss' was the last album recorded with their original line-up and now forms a vital part of their eight album back catalogue.
