Man Make Fire / Lake Of Kings / Robot Swans @ The Wheatsheaf, Oxford
Saturday 31 January 2015, 8:20 pm - 11:00 pm
£3.50 (advance) / £4.50 (door)
Man Make Fire are a four-piece rock band from Chipping Norton. They are at this moment locked away in a studio banging on bits of sheet metal to produce two brand new EPs which they humbly describe as this generation’s answer to Led Zeppelin. They play good, old-fashioned heavy rock with a glint in their eyes and a foot stomped down hard onto a pedal board.
Reading’s Lake Of Kings feature members of great Berkshire bands The Wookies, Johnny Arrow & The Cheap Day Returns, and The Golden Hours. They describe their music as alternative, experimental and progressive, all of which is doubtless true, but the presence of a strong melodic sense and a nice warm indie hug should not be under-rated either.
Robot Swans say, “we’re a three-piece indie/pop/something band from Oxford. Our sound combines male and female vocals, twinkly synths, electric guitar, bass, and our custom-made drum machine, DrumKid. The songs we play are bittersweet, often combining superficially happy sounds with melancholy lyrics”.
