20th January 2011 – Akira @ The Silver Bullet

Light up the Dark – Offering excellent live music from four amazing acts, great value drinks and the finest sound from this stunning north London venue, Akira Records will kick off the new year with a bang and promise to dispel any lingering January blues…



********** THE LOW BEHOLD **********


Catchy pop/disco house outfit The Low Behold is the brainchild of Andy Leary and Lisa Lorenz. As one half of the band Relation, Andy wrote all the songs on their debut album Fear of Night which was described as “Brilliant” by Pop Justice, and was rated as one of Tilllate Magazine’s Top 25 albums of 2009. Joined here by the Lisa’s powerful vocals, think a female-fronted Depeche Mode with a modern twist. These guys are the real deal.


************** THE FLEAS **************


The Fleas make sunny music for anyone who’s ever been caught in the rain. Their songs are packed with toe-tapping rhythms and lyrical sway, all sung by a totally captivating vocalist. The band is busy with their forthcoming EP, party with their following and prepare themselves for their first single release and accompanying tour in February 2011.




The Mourning Laughter are a four piece from London. Their songs display unusual rhythms and a highly original voice while always sounding classic, mixing influences from 80s alternative rock (think My Bloody Valentine and Sonic Youth) and 60s psychedelic pop (think Velvet Underground and the Byrds). Not to be missed.


************** THE ACHILLES ******************


The Achilles are an old-school, dirty little 4-piece rock-band with a big sound based in New Cross, London. Following in the Footsteps of Blur, Bloc Party et al they are all students at Goldsmiths College. Even though they have been together in their current 4 piece line-up for only 10 months they have already gained their first flickers of interest from industry and press solely through their power-packed live shows, a noisy smash of riff-filled guitars and screaming vocal with all the energy that only young bands can dish out.

@ The Silver Bullet

Opened as London’s first pop-up venue and now set to stay thanks to its ongoing success, The Silver Bullet in Finsbury Park has generated a lot of press attention, with a feature in NME, nights hosted by influential Indie Label Moshi Moshi and EARmusic, as well as holding the official Rage Against The Machine after party back in June.
