Despite having only formed back in August last year, young Sunderland quartet Japanese TV Club have already made considerable waves on the circuit. A plethora of demo recordings from guitarist/vocalist Michael Sayers, including the Idiot and I Want A Monster To Be My Friend EPs, as well as shows with the likes of Living Body, Seeing Hands and Future Horizons and a slot on the the main stage of this year’s Evolution Emerging have marked them out as ones to watch.

Now, they’ve taken their idea-packed lo-fi into the studio to produce their first proper EP as a full band, Horrow. Recorded and produced by the band themselves, this six-track collection is testament to their intelligent songwriting and ear for a quirky arrangement that falls into the lineage of grand nineties melancholists like Eels and the greatly missed Sparklehorse.

The band launch the EP on Friday 16th June with a headline show at Little Buildings, with support coming from the noisy doom punk of No Teeth. It’s sure to be another fine evening with a band that’s establishing some real momentum with their work.
