Gig of the Week: Yes Cadets
While ATL thoroughly recommends getting ones hands (and ones wellies) dirty with a visit to either Tanglewood or Forfey this weekend, our GOTW is something for those who like their music indoors. Yes Cadets have been on our radar for quite a while, offering something a little different and getting us all very excited with a string of subtly epic indie-pop releases...all while waiting in the wings. Their time seems to be coming, with a deal signed, a tour booked and an official release on the way. But why read my words when you can read those of vocalist Alan Haslam, who's kindly volunteered to make something of an official invite....
'It's a single launch show for 'Le Mans', which is being released by Berlin-based label Humming Records. You can download the track for free at www.soundcloud.com/hummingrecords.
It's the first track from a brand new EP, to be released in September, and our only NI show ahead of a full European tour in Oct/Nov/Dec. Doors are at 19.30, and to say thanks for coming you'll get a little pressie at the door if you get down early enough!'
Yes Cadets play The Menagerie, Belfast this Thursday. They also play Whelans, Dublin on Wednesday.
