Listen Up proudly present Shader, Columbia & Siracuse at 33 Oldham St, Manchester on Saturday 13th May 2023
SHADER deliver an eclectic swirl of huge melodic guitar riffs & northern grooves colliding with addictive arena-sized choruses.
“Mantra grooves with melodic wall-of-sound guitars, with frontman Stu Whiston’s vocals reminiscent of great British rock n roll singers” - Gigslutz
"Young English hounds out of Birmingham who combine British flair, British panache and British swagger in a most exciting way. Flaming guitars with a Stone Roses resonance, machine-gun drums, chant-like vocals and a highly infectious chorus to yell out at the top of your vibrating lungs. Britpop meets Madchester." Spotify
“Siracuse release their debut album ‘FOREVER’ independently. Recorded mixed and mastered at Tower Studios Pershore By music maestro Dave Draper. The album is a collection of Siracuse’s best work to date, following on the ‘Control’ EP which gained support from John Kennedy’s Xposure show on Radio X and the debut single ‘Become Lights’. Forever is set to shift up through the gears, driving reverberated guitars, big drums and distorted bass lines. Lead single ‘Lost Fiction’ off the album will be the first to be set off as a stand alone single with accompanying video. Forever is full of swirling, deep echoes and lyrics representing ‘escapism’ and ‘hope’. Influenced by Shoegaze and heavy use of guitar pedals, it’s atmospheric, dreamlike, but all indie!” Spotify
