Monday – SOPHIE ELLIS-BEXTOR @Concorde 2

Familia, which was released last week charting at #12, is Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s sixth studio album and follows her #4 charting and silver certified album Wanderlust, which marked a critically acclaimed change in musical direction for Sophie. Following suit with her last record, Familia was also co-written, produced and arranged by acclaimed singer-songwriter and good friend Ed Harcourt and was recorded in London with a close-knit group of musician friends.

Discussing her new album as “the bolshier, more extrovert little sister to Wanderlust”, Familia was introduced by the Radio 2 A-List track Come With Us, which is an instant disco-pop anthem. Second single Crystallise offers a different glimpse into Familia and is a romantic track that opens with a soft tempo before building into an impactful string laden, emotive chorus.

Tuesday – GRINGO STAR / LET’S TALK DAGGERS / ELECTRAVOX @Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar

Gringo Star are insouciant explorers, tossing the paddles overboard and drifting on the currents of their lackadaisical curiosity across a rippling sonic ocean, out to the far edges of rock & roll. Shots pulsing from a vintage Leslie speaker, their guitars, keys and vocals create the psychoactive ingredients of their echo-slathered, doo-wop-indebted indie gems; psychedelic garage bangers, gritty R&B shuffles and spaghetti-western weirdness. Taking cues from Santo & Johnny, The Stooges, Ritchie Valens, Marc Bolan, Percy Faith, Sam Cooke, the men working on the chain gang—uh! ah!—they’re all here, their electric ghosts reaching across time, tapping Gringo Star on the shoulder like the crossroads devil to Robert Johnson, bestowing secrets, passing torches.
