This Feeling: ‘Big In 2019’ Took Over Manchester

Music / January 29, 2019
by Johanna Roelich

Last weekend we headed over to Night & Day Cafe to see our mates from This Feeling and the electrifying fresh talent they had with them.

We met The Seamonsters again – the first time since Y Not Festival back in July, and they put on an equally energising performance that you couldn’t help but get let yourself go to. They opened the show and the crowd seemed to grow twice in size after their first song, as everyone started to merge closer to the stage. The ‘indie-glitter’ six-piece produce a catchy and uplifting indie-pop sound. Think swirling guitars, 80’s-style keys and stirring vocal harmonies.

We were lucky enough to witness the incredible sound of King Kartel yet again and they didn’t dishearten. The fear of disappointment after such high expectation from the first show vanished as soon as the guitars began to roar and lead-singer (Hugh) closed his eyes and reached towards the mic. Pure magic. It’s music that can be fully appreciated by rock music lover’s. Their style is unique yet reanimate the glory days of The Jam, The Libertines, even the early stuff from Kings of Leon. Somehow they managed to pick the best bits from a range of artists and stick it into one band.

We waited around not sure what to expect from the next band, Social Room. It was the first time I’d seen the guys live and they personally knocked me back with their talent and energy on stage. They took over and owned it, with strong rock vocals mixed with the electric sound guitar. These guys are something special and that was clear after the first 30 seconds of them owning their place up on stage. There’s no doubt they’re going to be big, very big, very soon. If you’re an Oasis, Stone Roses, The Verve (you get the idea) fan, these guys are for you. If you get the chance go see them live… Actually, make the chance. You won’t regret it.

Next up, Cleargreen. We met the lads at Y Not Festival back in the summer and their sound is spot on. Their music is heavily influenced by alternative indie, mod, and classic rock & roll which they performed with a raw ferocious energy and boasting confidence. If you get chance to see these guys live, you won’t forget it. They’re more than capable of achieving huge things. This Manchester 4-piece are ones to watch.

Finally, the reason for these guys coming together supporting one incredible group of lads; Red Rum Club. These guys are something else, described as bringing big rocking riffs back to Liverpool. Their sound is HUGE, a mix of soul, psyche and guitar rock with perfect harmonies and enough swagger and charm to come across as serious contenders. There’s only one way for RRC and it’s to the top. Trust us, you want to watch out for them because if you don’t, you’ll miss out on something big.
