The indie quintet from Oxford, famous for tracks such as ‘Hummer’ and ‘Cassius’ are back with a new tour to coincide with the release of their third studio album, Holy Fire, due to be released February 2013. Going for a more intimate setting whilst trying out their new material, this is a great chance to catch the band when they play at The Cellar on the 6th December.
Their previous two albums, Antidote and Total Life Forever, achieved both critical acclaim and chart success, the latter of the two was even nominated for the Mercury Prize, although beaten by The xx’s debut album.
Playing a range of old classics and new material, this is a great chance to see one of Britain’s most exciting bands play on a small scale. From the upbeat ‘Baloons’ and ‘Mathletics’ to the more chilled ‘Spanish Sahara’ and ‘Blue Blood’, this is not a gig you’ll want to miss.
Here is their new single, ‘Inhaler’, from new album Holy Fire:
