video: Graceland

Graceland, Debut London gig, The Old Blue Last, 11 Novgraceland
Much excitement led up to the London debut of this all woman four piece. Fans of popular shouty trio Fever Fever were keen to see what Rosie and Ellie did next.
Well, they joined forces with twins Maxie(drums) and Stevie (bass), Gedge who some may recognise for the band The Brownies and formed Graceland – (apparently named after the Paul Simon album as opposed to the Elvisresidence). Graceland are focussed, pounding joyously dark, hook laden indie pop somewhere with a whiff of Warpaint, at points chucking in a bit of a light surf rock vibe that wouldn’t go amiss in a Go Go’s song. Although completely ‘of the now’, there is a nod to the 80s in their sound and the band would not sound out of place playing in the nightclub at the beginning of San Junipero (Black Mirror).

Charley Stone and I caught up with Ellie and Rosie from the band after the gig:
