On the 26th February, Hare & Hounds held another indie extravaganza. This time round, the venue accommodated the rising stars Sea Girls, supported by the spirited duo APRE. Here’s what happened.
The Support Act: APRE
Charlie Brown and Jules Konieczny met at Ealing Chess Club, leading them to later study music together in Kilburn in north-west London. The band’s music shines with the jumpy pop rhythms that made Foals and Bombay Bicycle Club famous. Yet, when seeing APRE perform live, you realise that they certainly put their own spin on the sound with their unique and energetic on-stage demeanor.
After the release of their most-recent single ‘Gap Year 2008’, APRE have graced 2019 with a bunch of live gigs. In the lead-up to their headline show at the venue on April 2nd, the band gave their support slot their all. They have a brilliant live sound that is rather different to what you hear on the digital tracks. The guys love a good dance, and it really enhanced the enjoyment of their set. The dad dancing was solid and the crowd were all for it! Therefore, it is definitely worth seeing them live if you can. Apart from their Birmingham date, APRE are also hitting up venues in Bristol, Manchester and London. Click here for the dates and ticket information.
Also, I do love how they are wearing matching red shirts/jackets a lot of the time – it’s duo goals if you ask me.
The Headline Act: Sea Girls
With popular singles such as ‘All I Wanna Hear You Say’ and ‘Open Up Your Head’, indie-foursome Sea Girls have been making waves on the radio and beyond. ‘Open Up Your Head’ even made Annie Mac’s Hottest Record upon release. Originally from Leicester and Kent, the band members all share a great passion for music and possess a great relationship with their fans.
Performing both old and new material, Sea Girls were a real treat and always sought to involve the crowd at every opportunity. Frontman Henry Camamile even jumped into the crowd to mosh with us towards the end! Now that was an experience I was not expecting, but it made my night.
Sea Girls are hitting up a number of festivals this summer. Some of these include Neighbourhood Weekender, TRNSMT, Benicassim, Truck, and Reading & Leeds. Catch them if you can!
