Birthday Girl (Sweden), Bruise Control, Idle Hands
September 30 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm£6.50
Comprising members from the UK and Sweden, Birthday Girl are a four-piece based in Stockholm who dabble in krautrock, psyche, shoegaze and more to create compositions with complex vocal harmonies and ambience with abrasive noise. Formed in 2017 by twins, Martin and Fran Baxter with friend, James Corden when they made the decision to move from the north of England for a new life in Scandinavia, the line up was completed with the addition of Swedish guitarist Joakim Sandegård. Receiving huge praise from Iggy Pop on BBC 6Music and Cheryl Waters on KEXP for their early releases, the band have since supported the likes of Glasvegas, Frankie and the Witch Fingers and Cocaine Piss and built a dedicated following of their own.
Local punkers Bruise Control make a welcomed return to Aatma. This 5 piece band have released a collection of full throttle recordings over the last year. Check them out at https://bruisecontrol.bandcamp.com/album/bruise-control
