Lacey, an alternative pop-rock four piece from Nottingham have not only crashed onto our music-radar with a bang, they’ve made it clear that they’re here to stay. The band, already likened to Taking Back Sunday and Lower Than Atlantis, seem to be wowing critics left, right and centre and it comes as no surprise with their more than impressive cut, thrust and damn right electric stage presence.
Like the band name might suggest, Lacey offer a unique sound with modern rock tones and an infectious energy, guaranteed to get you moving in all the right ways. If that's not enough for you, Front Magazine described the band as “arguably the best thing to come out of Nottingham since Kevin Costners’ mullet." Now if that doesn't excite you, we’re not entirely sure what will.
With an impressive 4 K’s from Kerrang and a music video courtesy of Steel City Studio thanks to our friends over at Dropdead, we’re predicting big things from Lacey this year, with their brand spanking new album Under The Brightest Lights, featuring the single Tonight, set to drop April 20th – watch this space.
The band, recently back from a mammoth UK tour with People on Vacation, are set to hit Rescue Rooms in Nott’s on the 30th May with a supporting act yet to be confirmed. Whether you’re in the area or not, if choppy guitars and memorable hooks are your thing, we strongly advise you to get yourself down for what is set to be a crackin’ night!
There’s only one thing we love more than an underdog and that's a winner. These 4 understated lads from Nottingham are not only winning, they’re knocking out some seriously impressive tunes along the way, earning themselves our PULP seal of approval.
Something you guys may not know is that the bands drummer, Dave, once worked for us here at PULP as a graphic designer. We’re all about home-grown talent and will continue to back our own. There’s no doubt that Dave has been missed but we have to say – if the band continue to produce such epic sounds, we’re more than happy for him and the rest of the band to do so. Some may say bitter-sweet, we say rock on lads!
