Punchy verses give way to a soaring chorus, the sort that yearns for a thousand phone screens to be raised in a backlit salute of indie rock solidarity.
Since completing their line up in 2016, Black Cats and Magpies have established themselves as one of the Midlands most promising prospects. Having already earned comparisons to the likes of Foals, Catfish and the Bottlemen and The 1975, it’s clear that the band’s own brand of upbeat indie anthemia has seen their fan-base flourish.
Having already racked up multiple support slots with local indie pop legends DECO, not to mention joining them once again when they hit Rescue Rooms early next month, the band are making all the right moves. And while the release of last year’s The Quarry EP certainly earned Black Cats both critical and fan acclaim, it’s their incendiary live shows that continue to turn heads and win hearts across their native Nottinghamshire. The most recent of which, a chaotic and sweat-soaked affair at Nottingham’s Angel Microbrewery, sold out weeks in advance, and speaks volumes to the bands burgeoning popularity.
