In Vibes

In Vibes, a three-piece, indie-alt band that originate from Sunderland, are set to play a set in the cities premiere venue, INDEPENDENT, this weekend (Saturday 10). The band, consisting of Shaun Cowell, Isaac Hirshfield Wright and Louis Hellier, have been absent from the local circuit, consequential of Shaun and Isaac studying elsewhere for uni, but they’re back to kick 2015 off with their Shoegaze and Psychadelia influenced musings, that have earned them acknowledgment in NME following their gig with Happyness at Pop Recs.

Support for the night comes from Shultz, a quartet also categorised as Shoegaze, who have been praised for their energetic live sets that suit the soundscapes they craft. The night promises to showcase two up-and-coming local bands with a point to prove as they strive to stand out amongst a sea of emerging talent coming from the city. Mix that with both bands’ relative youth, they’re sure to inject a sense of fun and enjoyability into the night. In Vibes and Shultz are both tipped to continue to climb the indie circuit ladder, and go onto bigger, and better things in the not too distant future. With positive reviews in abundance, and negative equivalents nowhere in sight, this Independent gig seems like a steal at only £4.00.

In Vibes play INDEPENDENT on Saturday January 10. Doors 8pm. Tickets £4.
