In Isolation + V Transmission
Advance tickets available from http://sincitymanchester.co.uk/tickets/
The Nottingham launch of the long-awaited debut album by Nottingham New Wavers In Isolation, ‘A Certain Fractal Light’.
It is a fine art wearing influences openly on the sleeve whilst creating a powerfully unique and distinct sound, but a craft British band IN ISOLATION has developed and honed to attention-grabbing success since emerging in 2009.
The Nottingham hailing trio draw on eighties inspirations for their indie rock adventures; new wave/post punk temptations ranging from The Smiths to David Bowie, Killing Joke, and The Cult helping trigger their own imagination alongside similarly rich hues sparked by post-punk revivalist bands like Editors and Bloc Party. United they spice a sound which is emotively kaleidoscopic and engagingly unpredictable; a proposal instinctively provoking thoughts, emotions, and eager physical involvement.
“… a very good track (Elder Statesman) .. it’s hard to think it’s your debut album; you’ve been a band of some renown for a couple of years at least.”
– Dean Jackson, The Beat Introducing, BBC Radio Nottingham
“Freaking real killer U.K. band In Isolation I just reviewed .. loving the production and sound ..” – Kimberly James, president CBM Records, Atlanta
“… a very smooth set that was proud, passionate, and refined to the highest degree, performed by very talented people working in perfect tandem.”
– Cat On The Wall zine
“… the vocal from Swift has a classic kind of 80’s flavour and really helps to give the track plenty of character.” (Parlance).
– The Musical Outcast
Support comes from two excellent Nottingham bands; Prime and Diablo Furs.
Prime are an explosive new rock band from Nottingham, England. From the same circuit that has produced such internationally renowned acts as Jake Bugg, the group has played some fantastic, edgy live shows to promote their new record. ‘Before the After’ is an 8 track mini-album (with various bonus tracks) that displays the dynamic variety of Lee Heir, Dan Ryland and Chris Munton, be it on punky numbers like ‘Teen TV’ and ‘Take Me To Your Crew’, the riffy Britpop style guitar-fests of ‘Silly Billy’ and ‘Like the Weather’, or more dark, downbeat songs like ‘Same Old Story’ and ‘Flatline’.
Nottingham’s Diablo Furs are the snotty, brattish grandchild of The New York Dolls and Richard Hell. Their fuzzy guitars, aggressive vocals and abrasive fuck you attitude are a breath of fresh air unpolluted by any computer aided trickery or artificially generated beats. Black Mirror Girls 1973 and Wytches sound like tight leather trousers, ripped t-shirts and a cigarette dangling nonchalantly from their lips.
ZEITGEIST ZERO are one of the most exciting bands in the alternative music scene. Simultaneously jaunty and jaundiced, the band combines synthesizers with the more human elements of guitars, melodic piano and passionate female vocals.
IN ISOLATION are from Nottingham, influenced by the more underground post-punk sounds of the 80s plus overground new wave artists of that era. Featuring ex-members of Every New Dead Ghost, Emma Conquest and Die Laughing, and adding influences from the angled indie sounds of the noughties and post-noughties, the band creates a sound your ears may very well want to get into bed with. They join us as special guests in support of their brand new debut album, A Certain Fractal Light.
Nottingham gothabilly duo DEATH PARTY UK complete the bill. Touring in support of debut album Hellfire Rock ‘n’ Roll Volume One, they’re fronted by guitarist/singer Trev (ENDG, Midnight Configuration, etc.) with additional vocals from Scarlet Moonchild. Points of reference include the Gun Club, Johnny Cash, the Cramps, and even some early Nephilim.
The CARPE NOCTUM club night follows, with goth, punk, industrial and post-punk tunes (and random other stuff) to keep you dancing till 2am.
Doors 7pm, first band onstage 7:30, club night 10-2am. Admission is just £5 OTD.
