FIRST ON feat Idle Hours+ BYE LOUIS + TALKFIELD
First On returns to kick off the festivities on Thursday 1st December 2022, starting the winter months in front of your next favourite artists. Manchester indie risers, Idle Hours, headline along with Bye Louis and Talkfield.
Tickets on sale now.
With quizzical and assuring social commentary, Idle Hours culminates the sense of cruising rhythm with oncoming jagged guitar and melody. Pulled together from four distant English towns, the band’s garage rock sensibilities have already bagged them slots alongside the likes of The Lounge Society, Keg, The Rills and Silverbacks, in addition to several of their own sold-out hometown headline shows.
Thier recently released EP ‘The Fourth Wall‘, Marks Idle Hours’ first major body of work showcasing their flexibility and uniqueness in sound and character. Spearheaded by the driving, motorik-infused rhythms of French Disconnection, it’s a track born out of a common desire to find the door which leads elsewhere, flaunts the band’s capabilities in its catchiest form. With cutting riffs, precise drums and powerful harmonies, held together by the anchor of a galvanised-steel bassline, this song might be Idle Hours’ most dance floor friendly offering to date.
Bye Louis are 5 little lovely lads based largely in Liverpool. Initially a solo project for Kieran, loneliness and a sense of gurgling in his tummy started to take over, and he decided to make a little family. Now a band containing chuckle-buddy Jack (Furry Hug, Dilettante), smile-winner Ross (best brass player), treacle-soaked Jed (Jed Timms) and slime-gorgon Sean (Foxen Cyn, Cargo Cvlt, Shumi Village), Bye Louis have been hiding away working their small but perfectly formed minds to full capacity. The result; bossa-nova-folk-rock with a groat of Ennio Morricone and a halfling of wonk. Your parents will thank you, people will find you less-shallow and previously nervous cats will approach you with aplomb and due haste – all because you stood and listened.
