Indie rock Band Morain have been making waves in the undercurrent of the music scene since 2010, when they were signed by Bright Black Records in the summer. Since then, the band have gone from playing venues in their local city of Wakefield, West Yorkshire, to embarking on tour to support fellow musicians Canterbury across the UK.
Their gig at Southampton’s local venue The Cellar, however, will be a short departure from this tour, wherein Morain will be the main attraction. Morain released their first and only EP Are We Lost? last September to much praise and critical attention, in particular magazine Rock Sound commented that ‘With a debut this strong, Morain are quickly going to find themselves racing toward their destination’. It certainly seems that Morain are a member of this ever exciting movement of new Indie rock bands who display a lot of promise and flair, thus making them one to watch. Sure to play material from their EP, such as single ‘Animals’ and my personal favourite ‘Are We Lost?’, Morain are guaranteed to fill the room with their bold and raw creative sound.
Catching this up and coming band at such a local iconic venue is not to be missed out on, if not just to be able to say ‘I saw them before they were big’, because from the look of it they’re bound for popularity.
