CANCELLED* Findlay + Sophie and The Giants on Wednesday 14th November 2018
'Due to unforeseen circumstances this show has been cancelled. Refunds available at point of purchase'
Sonic Gun Concerts and Birmingham Promoters presents:
A cat scratching in her throat, full of banter and insolent, tearing cracks through nature: Natalie Findlay comes from the same bloodline as PJ Harvey or The Kills’ Alison Mosshart.
Born and raised in Manchester, but far enough away from the grips of its elders The Smiths and Joy Division, Findlay invents herself as a true original, electric guitar swinging at her side. At 17 she signs to a major label, but the dream soon turns into a complete misadventure, for her personally and for her art. Craving to regain her freedom, she creates her own label, Mint Records, signs to BMG and escapes for good.
Today She loves Motown artists, psychedelic rock, blues and well as hip-hop, she creates electronic soundscapes drawing from all styles to mix and create textures filled with aspiration. She composes alone, mostly on guitar, sometimes on piano, or turns her voice and words into drum rhythms to serve as a canvas, always on the lookout for strange sounds and new distortions, carried by her addictive choruses.
Sophie and The Giants
Sophie and the Giants is the brain child of front woman Sophie Scott, who had an urge to play the songs she had written for years within a band setting. The Guildford four piece are sonically, wise beyond their years. Each song they craft is a perfect concoction of everything that’s wanted from music, whether you’re a die hard fan or a casual listener. Their hooks reel you in and the lyrics hold your attention in their expressive and relatable nature, painting pictures in your mind. They’ve so quickly mastered the art of having a sound that’s nearly impossible to pin down to an exact point. They’re poppy, but still retain an impressive uniqueness. Sophie and The Giants are unpredictable, in no way that’s chaotic.
