Easter + The Bricks + Fig By Four - Leeds
Fancy Claps presents...
Manchester indie-rockers Easter have built a reputation as one of the city’s best-kept secrets. Spurred along by singer/songwriter/guitarist Tom Long with a rotating cast of Manc underground shredders, they’re a formidable live act who’ve toured the UK repeatedly and provided support for post-rock
behemoths Mono, avant-rockers Ranga and Mugstar but also poppier acts such as Canadian shoe-gazers Tallies. However, for all of Manchester’s illustrious musical history, it’s hard to bring to mind a local act that they compare or aspire to. Instead Easter’s binoculars are fixed on the fuzzy indie-rock of Dinosaur Jr , Guided By Voices and Teenage Fanclub with added twin-guitar weaving recalling the articulate jams of Television, Chris Forsyth and even Wishbone Ash. Only in Tom’s vocals are there hints of their surroundings with occasional echoes of Morrissey and a few junctions away across the M62, Dave Gedge.
They’ve found admirers in Huw Stephens and Tom Ravenscroft at 6 Music and garnered praise from Uncut, Record Collector and NYC’s The Big Takeover while building a loyal fanbase across the UK.
With support from...
Garagey post-punk new wave mash-up with riot grrrl vocals from York. Ex members of Red Monkey/Thick Syrup/Broken Arm/Mob Rules.
Fig by Four is multi-instrumentalist Sarah Statham (she/her), who weaves ethereal thoughts on connection, memory and loss into a refreshing melting pot of off-kilter alternative/indie musical storytelling. Her debut collection of songs, released as Capture Reveal in October 2023, is hinged on pensive lyrics, dynamic rhythms, characterful guitars and ear-catching basslines. Fig’s varied musicality swings between the viscerally immediate and the sweepingly cinematic. Drip-feeding melodic hooks and choruses that begin to feel like mantras for everyday connection with the self and the world around us. Like glimpsing diary entries or being walked through a dream, Fig by Four is a shift in perspective that draws you in and absorbs you in Sarah’s carefully crafted worlds, which are full of heart, warmth and authentic human spirit.
