The Pleasance Sessions: The List Magazine Presents …

This listing is from a previous year,
search current listings »

The List's very own evening as part of the Pleasance Sessions brings together Prehistoric Friends, Two Wings, Ubre Blanca, plus TYCI DJs and visuals by Adventures in Light.

Sounding like Jean-Michel Jarre meets Kraftwerk, Ubre Blanca are an exciting electronic duo whose synths and darker reverberations are reminiscent of a bone-deep Mike Oldfield experimentalism. They sound like they've stepped straight out of the late 70s.

Glasgow natives Two Wings are no different. Hanna Tuulikki's striking high pitch is reminiscent of your first listen to ‘Wuthering Heights’ and Fleetwood Mac's Rumours. Songs like 'Peace Fear' and 'Eikon' have satisfying guitar melodies and chunky bluesy rhythms.

Headliners Prehistoric Friends have their very own professional violist, and evoke acts like Band Of Horses on new single 'Bermuda Triangle'.

There's also tunes from the excellent TYCI DJs with mesmerising visuals from Adventures in Light.
