I Oh You, Frontier Touring & GRAIN present
At The Brightside, Brisbane October 12
GRAIN is excited to be co-presenting UK based art-rock/punk outfit Sorry with I OH YOU and Frontier Touring this October!
Sorry have created their own distinctive musical world – one that draws together a shared passion for lo-fi sounds of grunge, trap, and shoegaze. As one of the UK’s hottest rising outfits, 2022’s Anywhere But Here was described by NME as “frequently taking sudden turns that you don’t see coming”.
A band with a devoted following on both sides of the Atlantic, don’t miss UK band Sorry this October!
"Emerging from the same scene that brought bands like Shame, Goat Girl, and HMLTD to the fore, Sorry are one of the UK’s most inventive new guitar groups. Formed by childhood friends Asha Lorenz and Louis O’Bryen, and joined by Lincoln Barrett (drums) and Campbell Baum (bass), Sorry write downer indie rock songs that sound like a two-day hangover: the rhythms are claustrophobic, the guitars and electronics are racked by distortion, and Lorenz and O’Bryne’s twin vocals sound both anxious and exasperated.
Though they’re based in north west London, this is a far cry from the tabloid-friendly Camden indie bands that were ubiquitous in the early 2000s – instead, the band cite experimental artists like Dean Blunt and Mica Levi and the early mixtapes of Brooklyn rap collective Pro Era as influences. Sorry’s queasy, uneasy sound could only belong to the present: all four members came of age during a decade whose cultural mood was defined by precarity, austerity, and a spiralling mental health crisis.
Having toured with the likes of Thurston Moore, Sunflower Bean, and Alvvays, Sorry are currently laying down their debut album for UK indie label Domino."
