Wednesday April 3rd – 7:30pm to 11pm
Kushikatsu Records & Indie Midlands presents Night Flowers & Homecomings plus special guests The Sunset Beach Hut.
It has been a whirlwind couple of years for London indie-pop quintet Night Flowers after close friends from North England collided with Boston, Massachusetts-born vocalist Sophia Pettit.
The band began forming their irresistible brand of heart-stirring, romantic pop, creating joyous combinations of intertwining female/male vocals backed by glistening guitars and dreamlike atmospherics, winning them friends, fans and accolades across the world.
The 2018 release of their debut album ‘Wild Notion’ received widespread praise. The band hit the road blowing blissful gales through audiences on their headline tours and supports to The Pains of Being Pure At Heart and Japanese Breakfast. They’ve also found time for festival appearances at Bluedot, Kendal Calling and Indietracks with main stage performances at End of The Road and Visions.
In October 2018 Night Flowers were invited to tour Japan with Kyoto pop quartet Homecomings – now it’s time to return the favour as Homecomings get set to play their first ever UK shows.
Homecomings formed in 2012 and rapidly became popular in Kyoto and with the online Japanese indie community. They hit wider attention with their 2014 debut album ‘Somehow, Somewhere’ which instantly sold out at many record stores all over Japan!
Relentless touring and a second album ‘Sale Of Broken Dreams’ in 2016 saw them refine their sound, filled with fuzzy, jangly guitars, bittersweet dream-pop melodies and delightful vocal harmonies. Growing in confidence as composers and performers, they’ve supported many international acts, appeared at Fuji Rock Festival and written music for the hit anime ‘Liz and the Bluebird’ and sophisticated pop idols Negicco.
Homecomings released their highly anticipated third album ‘Whale Living’ in October 2018 accompanied by another hugely successful Japanese tour.
The Sunset Beach Hut
Debuting their first tracks in February 2018, Shrewsbury’s Indie-Pop trio The Sunset Beach Hut have gained a lot attention so far on the Birmingham gigging circuit. They achieved Record of the Week from BBC Introducing with their singles Comfort and Upside-Down and the latter was awarded BBC Shropshire’s Record of the Month.
They had some incredible gigs of their own in 2018, a sold out headline at The Sunflower Lounge, as well as supporting some of the UK’s current up and coming artists including Spinn, The Cheap Thrills, Stereo Honey and Peaness. Back in November the band played their first London show supporting Shields.
With some exciting things planned, 2019 is looking to be a good year for The Sunset Beach Hut!
