SAUNA YOUTH are a London-based punk band featuring Boon, Mince, Ecke and Pines. They played together in the band Monotony, and between them have played or do play in other bands and music projects including Primitive Parts, Feature, Child’s Pose, Lilac, Cold Pumas, Oblate, Teufelskreis, Mind Jail, Gold Foil, Tense Men as well as being involved with the organisations Good Night Out, The Positive Press, Constant Flux & Heart n Soul. Sauna Youth are releasing their third album this September under the thrilling and fatal moniker ‘Deaths’. This album will once again be released by Upset the Rhythm. The final part in a trilogy of LPs that started with Dreamlands in 2012 (wide-eyed, naive beginnings introducing listeners to the world the records inhabit), followed by Distractions three years ago (what happens while you’re heading towards a destination, the unknowns, the unexpected outcomes), the songs that comprise Deaths are collectively about the act of finishing, an ode to ‘the ending’. The 12 tracks touch on political rhetoric, artistic legacy, action and passivity, work and leisure, and, of course, distraction, referencing many musical genres in the process while never leaving punk’s orbit. This show will act as their album release party!
CURRENT AFFAIRS are pure new wave excitement from Glasgow. Joan, Josh, Andrew & Seb are a sassy, thumping, ’tune after tune’ post-punk party hit-machine. Their queer, goth punk is laden with addictive bass hooks, frantic guitar screeches, bullet punch drum hits, whirring keyboards and commanding calls. Sharing members with Anxiety, Rose McDowall and Shopping.
PINKGRIP make loud, pummelsome hardcore punk in London. Their songs are sludgy, pointed and thrash in an oddly addictive way. Check out their demo on Far So Far below!
