Introducing shoegazers Tapeworm from Northern France. Listen to their album Funtastic:
It’s in the heart of 2018’s summer, settled in the youth cultural center of their hometown, that Margot, Théo and Eliott start composing what will become Funtastic. Soon the atmosphere surrounding them modelled a made-to-measure environment full of vivid colours and all kind gym mats. A welcome return to roots which gave them confidence to emerge from the usual bass, guitar, drum pattern. Tinged by summer softness, the first songs of this session will soon confront new life experiences. Relatives’ loss and personal issues led to major changes for the band members. It all resulted in a simple need : look to the future. Funtastic name symbolize their search for a new horizon charged with nostalgia, bittersweet recklessness and positivity. In 33 minutes, Funtastic brings noisy pop songs into electronic, rock songs into experimental playgrounds and offers synth pop lullabies breaks. On this album, Tapeworms convey forgotten self promises, inner demons, face challenges and bet on luminous outcomes. Debut album Funtastic Released on 25th of September on Cranes Records, Howlin Banana Records and Coypu Records. The Band took part in Let of The Dial in Rotterdam and Levitation france Session
Making a return to Aatma after their packed headline show in December is King Mob. RGM included them in the top 10 list of Manchester student bands in 2021. Here’s what they had to say:
A band that make success of the wave of so much of the great indie guitar music that has come out of Manchester, King Mob’s infatuated and catchy lyrics that lie over short and fast instrumentation make for a band that’ll make you want to keep on dancing. King Mob have done plenty of gigs this year, recently headlining a sold out show at Manchester’s famous Aatma, and I’m sure we’ll see them doing a lot more next year.”
Catchy indie punk outfit Superwaif will be starting proceedings. The band recently released their EP ‘The Jura Tapes’. Have a listen:
