The Kids Are Solid Gold continue to cherry-pick the best rising talent, bringing Eliza Shaddad to Middlesbrough’s Westgarth Social Club on Wednesday 20th April.

Eliza’s Waters EP was a beguiling introduction to the songwriter, mixing atmospheric guitars and building rhythms, and she quickly garnered a reputation for her raw yet candid live shows. With new EP Run in the bag, lead single Wars is a grittier, looser and more progressive affair, perfect for fans of Kristin Hersh or PJ Harvey.

Of Scottish/Sudanese parentage and based in London, Eliza is as at home with the volume turned up as she is with a quiet slow burner, and with a writing credit with Clean Bandit and support slots under her belt with Rudimental, Alt-J and SBTRKT no less, she certainly comes well recommended.
