Preview: The Calls @ 360 Club

After an emphatic single launch night at Bad Apples saw ripples spread across the Leeds indie music scene, The Calls will return to storm the stage at 360 Club on Saturday 21st November. A controlled but aggressive four-piece, The Calls are hotly tipped to be the latest success story of a growing musical movement. Hailing from Leeds, the band know all too well about the hidden secrets of the city’s backstreet intricacies, painting sharp mosaics of tragedy tainted with bittersweet irony. And whilst their riff-heavy sound brushes Leeds’ surface, their lyrics take you deep below the canvas. Clever, raucous and quick, The Calls capture the essence of their city and translate it into an irrepressible language of enchanting disillusionment.

Joining The Calls at one of Leeds’ most consistent venues, The Voodoo Bats, Summer Riots, and Built on Stilts will combine to provide an angry, upbeat and dance-inducing showcase not to be missed by those who enjoy hearing upcoming talent at its raw beginnings. For a taste of what The Calls’ palette offers, check out their debut music video: ‘The Waterfront’.
