Three to see: Harbour, Saturday's Kids, Évariste Galois

I've seen Harbour a couple of times now, and it took me a while to get
it into my head what they were about. Simple, forceful, hard, but like
Gallows they have some sweet underlying tunes.
I'll be watching Saturday's Kids for the first time this week, and I'm
looking forward to catching something of the energy of this five-piece
Newport band in the live arena. Their recordings and demos are urgent,
youthful, and punk.
"Saturday's Kids are warming like a lighter under the heart. Their
rabid flailing has toughened and coagulated since the last time I saw
them: what then was spirited but unfocussed is now a weighty mix of
yowling punk, squally no wave and messy brutality. Even when they sound
like four people playing different songs at the same time, they at
least make them good songs, and that's all you need." (Joy Collective)
Probably the youngest of the three. Evariste Galois aka Matt, Owen,
Dave, have a musical maturity beyond their years. Determined,
aggressive, loud, rushed, but charming all the same.
