Extraordinarily good news for anyone out there with a penchant for really weird experimental pop music has arrived in the form of Manchester-based mavericks. Everything Everything’s recent announcement of an exclusive show at York’s The Duchess on September 14.
This band’s slick sound has seen them become a pretty big noise in the sparsely populated territory smack bang in the middle of alternative music and pop music over the past few years – their debut album Man Alive released in August 2010 brought widespread critical acclaim and charted at 17 in the UK, which is remarkably good going for a debut album by a markedly unusual band in this age of fence-sitting retro pastiche and saccharine autotune. With their highly polished combination of glossy harmonies, math-rock riffs and eccentric lyrical musings Everything Everything represent the kind of experience that’s not available in this town very often at all. The show at The Duchess is just one of two intimate warm up gigs the band are playing as they warm up for Portmerion’s No. 6 Festival and prepare to launch their second album.
Earlier today, Duchess promoter Joff Hall stated: “We’re delighted that the band chose to come play at The Duchess, York as one of their 2 intimate shows previewing material from their eagerly awaited 2nd album. Tickets have only been on sale a few days but are already selling well. The band made their first appearance here in May 2010 when they supported Hurts. It’s great to finally have them back.”
