We venture to West Yorkshire to meet Heavenly Recordings newcomers Working Men's Club.
KEY TRACK: Teeth
LABEL: Heavenly Recordings
MANAGEMENT: Brave Music Agency
WHO: Singer, guitarist and beat-maker Sydney Minsky-Sargeant, guitarist Giulia Bonometti and drummer Jake Bogacki formed Working Men’s Club in West Yorkshire a while back, before recruiting bass player Liam Ogburn.
WHAT: Exuberant rock‘n’roll. This lot blend new wave, post-punk, motorik rhythms and hard-edged beats. New single Teeth is an antsy delight.
WHERE: The band grew up in various Northern towns and, now, their base is in Todmorden, West Yorkshire.
DOES THE NAME HAVE A STORY?
Only in that it nods to the unedifying struggle of trying to get into a bar underage. It suits the relatable grit that embodies the band’s sound, too.
WHAT ELSE IS GOING ON?
Well, Working Men’s Club have just signed to Heavenly, off the back of packed out gigs alongside a raft of acts including Fat White Family, Mac DeMarco and The Brian Jonestown Massacre.
AND WHAT’S NEXT?
They’ve just played Latitude and support Bodega next month. Then, there’s their first headline run in October. Don’t miss it.
