Fresh are one of the most exciting bands in the UK right now. We had them play acoustic on our 2000Trees stage a couple of years ago and they were great - so we're super excited about this. The songs we all love from their brilliant debut album take on a whole different dynamic. If you enjoyed them earlier this year full band, you'll want to check this set out too.

ME REX - https://merex.bandcamp.com/album/triceratops
Indie-emo-pop from London. We've wanted to have ME REX on a show for ages, so are really pleased they're on this tour. Intricate, introspective and incredibly relatable songs all on EPs named after dinosaurs.

Tea Leaf - https://tealeaf.bandcamp.com/music
Thoughtful and engaging emo songwriting from one of the nicest humans in music. Huge John K. Samson and Phoebe Bridgers vibes.

    Pop Punk

    London punks, Fresh have just announced their new self-titled album due out 18th August via Specialist Subject Records and have shared a new song, Fuck My Life.

    Since forming in 2015 Fresh quickly released a couple of home recorded EPs, mixing lo-fi acoustic songs and noisy, urgent pop punk with tracks that rarely pass the two- minute mark. With their debut album, the band hone this formula even more and the opening track, Short Hair, Don’t Care is a simple, yet effectively stripped-down guitar and vocal ballad.

    Get Bent sees the band get into their stride with a punk rabble-rouser that is melodic and powerful at the same time. On Bible Camp the pace is maintained with the relentlessly powerful guitars propelled forward by some solid rhythm section and the song leads straight into the bass driven I’ll Be Back where Fresh channel the Pixies with some special lyrics on top.

    Female post-punk bands inevitably draw comparisons with the likes of Warpaint and Sleater-Kinney but Fresh are different with an urgency and, dare I say it, freshness that is unique. The aforementioned, Fuck My Life begins with an extended acoustic guitar lick before launching into a power chord power-play with layered vocals and build to a crescendo. Passing has a false start, a quick laugh and then gets moving and it’s a corker of a song with great lyrics and playing by the band reminding me of The Wedding Present.

    Wish That You Were Here is a more eclectic song with the bass up-front and the drums providing the platform for some guitar/vocal interplay. On Six Months, the female vocal delivers a perfect Lo-Fi pop song that is beguiling! Goodbye Suckers continues with a plaintive guitar and personally focused lyrics and leads into a ballad, Lead Ashtray as Fresh display a full set of tricks. The latter track takeoff into an Undertones style punk-pop riff with an excellent guitar solo and I loved it!

    Concluding with No Big Deal, Fresh again dabble with the perfect pop song mixed with slacker Lo-Fi and urgent punk rock to produce that signature sound and wrap up a superb album.
