Deep Sea Arcade at Laissez Faire Club: 16 May


Photography by Nicolas Elliott

Trawling through the Internet, we came across these photos of Sydney’s Deep Sea Arcade playing for us at The Social on Little Portland Street last Monday night. If you were there, you’ll know what a great set it was – fizzing with character and energy, and jam packed with tunes. We’re proud to have hosted one of their two debut London shows.

Their single, ‘Lonely In Your Arms’, sees the light of day in the UK this Monday 30th through New Music Club, and the band are currently rounding off their maiden Euro tour with an appearance at Primavera Sound in Barcelona this Saturday 28th.

Check out set highlight (and B-side to LIYA) ‘Keep On Walking’ Below – it’s been stuck in our head since they walked off stage at the gig.



New LFC show announced: The Social, 16 May

We’re back in action on the live front in mid May, when we host an incredible international lineup on the 16th of the month at The Social on Little Portland Street.

Headlining the event are one of our favourite new bands, London’s Channel Cairo – they opened up the second night of our fourth birthday shows in January with such aplomb, we’ve invited them back to do it all over again. Think big, haunting, piano-led opuses, with hints of Jeff Buckley and The Cure. They’re a band very much on an upward trajectory, and as ever, we’re giving you a early head’s up to come and join the party.

Main support are the wonderful Bravestation from Toronto. This show will be their first ever appearance in the UK (and also outside of Canada) at the start of a maiden tour of the British Isles. Generating a bit of an online buzz, their dreamy, otherworldly sound has drawn comparisons to the likes of Yeasayer, Local Natives and Foals. We’d speculate this is a band you’ll kick yourself about missing as and when they go on to bigger things. Their debut 2010 EP below is FREE to download – acquaint yourselves now.

From the other side of the globe are Deep Sea Arcade (Sydney, Australia), who’ll be opening the evening. Again, local and national buzz in their homeland has spawned a debut international tour, and we’re delighted to have pinned them down for one of the dates, which also includes The Great Escape Festival in Brighton and Primavera Sound in Barcelona. Sound wise, this is classic, timeless pop, with hints of psychedelia and trip hop (their own words) – Beatles, Monkees, Beach Boys, all over in three minutes or under. It’ll probably transport you to Bondi Beach for at least half-an-hour or so in any case, and is a trip we can’t wait to go on.

Tickets for the gig are available now for just £5 and can be purchased here. RSVP to the Facebook event here. Further details are available on our events page.
