Amber Arcades just announced for January!

We’re so happy to announce Amber Arcades at the Harley 19/01.

Amber Arcades is the moniker of Dutch musician Annelotte de Graaf. Having written and recorded songs in a solo setting for some time, she flew out to New York in 2015 and teamed up with producer Ben Greenberg to record her debut album. The album sees de Graaf exploring a new set of influences, presenting floating pop melodies over mantric guitar lines and was released in June 2016.

The swirling, steely songs on the debut are inspired by “time, continuity, coincidence and magic”, as well as early-morning jetlag (on ‘Turning Light’) and an artist’s plans for a utopian city (‘Constant’s Dream’). That may all sound pretty dreamy, and these songs do have wonderful ethereal qualities, but De Graaf’s dreams are not the whimsical kind. De Graaf’s dreams have led to her working as a legal aide on UN war crime tribunals, to inviting skint strangers to share her Utrecht squat, and to spending her life savings on a flight to New York because that’s where she wanted to record her first album.

Outlines Festival announces lineup

We’re delighted to be part of Outlines Festival for its second year.

Jagwar Ma, Slow Club, Lady Leshurr and The Selecter all feature among the key names so far.

Buy £15 weekend tickets here, while stocks last.

Your new favourite multi-venue metropolitan festival will return to Sheffield City Centre for its second year from 3rd to 4th March 2017, showcasing a blend of established artists and up-and-coming acts. After the success of 2016′s debut event, and after listening to your feedback, we’ve extended the event, which will now take place across two days.

Heading up the bill are Australian psychedelic rock outfit Jagwar Ma, whose newly released second album Every Now & Then has been earning critical acclaim and is already promising to build on the success of hits such as ‘Come Save Me’ and ‘Uncertainty’.

Jagwar Ma will share the stage at the iconic venue The Leadmill – now in its 35th year at the forefront of the UK’s live music scene – with a host of Sheffield talent. This showcase will be headed up by alt-rock duo Slow Club, whose latest album One Day All Of This Won’t Matter Anymore sees the band experiment with an Americana-tinged sound while retaining the rich vocal harmonies of their earlier albums.

Additional Sheffield talent comes from indie-pop quartet The Crookes, who return to the city following an extensive US tour in support of their latest, Fierce Panda-released single ‘Roman Candle’.

Meanwhile, at the festival’s largest venue, Plug, legendary 2-tone pioneers The Selecter return to Sheffield with an arsenal of hits including ‘On My Radio’ and ‘Three Minute Hero’.

Fans of electronic music, who last year enjoyed the legendary likes of Roots Manuva on the bill, will also find much to enjoy on the lineup, with emerging rappers Lady Leshurr and Nadia Rose just two of the hotly-tipped new acts on the bill.

Those looking to discover new bands and alternative music will be catered for too, with Hookworms, The Wytches, Islet, The Orielles, Blood Sport, Luxury Death, Jodie Abacus and Azusena among the first announcements.

Come and meet your new favourite band. Get £15 weekend tickets here while stocks last.

The Crookes Christmas Tour this December

Sheffield based band, The Crookes will be touring the UK this December and will be stopping off at the Queens Social Club. This seasonal night is now on sale and is available for 14 years+.

Like the writer Calvino once said: “There’s a boundary line: on one side are those who make books, and on the other those who read them.” You could typify the Sheffield four-piece as well read, or versed, in tales of love and the space in-between, but they are dreamers who resonate more with a life lived. When speaking of The Crookes, the words of Calvino could be amended: there are those who make music, there are those who listen to music, and then, there are those who live it.

Tickets are available now and for more details on the show, see Facebook.
