Sound City is getting close now and to celebrate this year’s tenth anniversary festival, we’ve decided to drop our top ten acts you can’t miss this year.
Our top ten acts you can’t miss for Sound City 2017 doesn’t feature any side show acts or non-preforming acts. Standby for our full preview out next week and pick up one of the last tickets for this year’s festival now.
10. Tim Burgess & Mark Collins
The Charlatans‘ legends Tim Burgess & Mark Collins will preform songs from The Charlatans‘ brand new LP Different Days, which is out on the 26th May, live inside Tim Peaks Diner on the Sunday, which will surely be a special set by the two.
The Taipei based artist Aristophanes steps in to headline the Late Night Parties on Sunday night bringing her mesmerising brand of baleful mandarin vocals over glitchy dark beats, which we heavily recommend you don’t miss on the late Sunday night.
7. !!! (CHK CHK CHK)
The dance-punks !!! return to Liverpool for their well anticipated set at this year’s Sound City. Following the release of their recent album, !!! (also known as CHK CHK CHK) will step onto the Baltic Stage armed with their dance punk anthems that are bound to make you move!
6. The Japanese House
Mysterious songwriter The Japanese House finally arrives in Liverpool to preform at this year’s festival. Backed by her minimal electronic indie-pop sounds, The Japanese House (aka songwriter Amber Bain) will likely provide a set like no other on Sound City weekend and we can’t wait.
5. Gang Of Youths
The Aussie indie rockers are known as one of the country’s most impressive live bands and with their sophomore album on its way , Gang of Youths aim to impress with their Tim Peaks Diner set at this year’s event.
4. Queen Zee and The Sasstones
Quick rising local punks Queen Zee & The Sasstones bring their quick-fire, wailing live set to Sound City in a show that will be nothing short of unmissable, especially following past outings and the band’s huge recent debut single “Sissy Fists”.
3. The Amazons
Last we said a band of their live calibre was too great for a Buyers Club show, now months later they return on the Baltic Stage and we suggest you don’t miss them before they inevitabley rise bigger.
The returning Metronomy headline the first night of Sound City 2017, with their fresh comeback album and their past selection of electronic sounds, the band appears to be in very high form coming into Liverpool.
The project, that of mastermind Joe Mount, has been at the forefront of modern British pop since the late 2000s while still sticking outside of the mainstream trends. With their comeback album still freshly in our minds, we can’t wait to catch Metronomy headline Sound City‘s Saturday night this year.
Peaches makes a standout performance of the weekend on the Baltic Stage that’s bound to feature all sorts of madness that only Peaches can provide.
They’re our top ten acts you can’t miss at Sound City 2017, standby for our full preview next week and for more visit http://www.LiverpoolSoundCity.co.uk.
