Four-piece Dublin rockers The Raglans are taking some time out from supporting Haim and The Libertines for a night alongside two of the most rapidly-rising indie bands in the North East.

After knocking out bouncy melodic indie pop at venues and festivals across the country, and releasing their anthemic, relentlessly catchy debut album, The Raglans land in Ouseburn on Sunday 22nd March. Wearing an Irish folk influence strongly on their sleeves, lead singer Stephen Kelly and the band arrive with a dedicated following for their relentlessly infectious hooks and distinctively mandolin-infused indie-rock-folk sound. Increasingly polished and confident at their live appearances, and bringing with them an ever-growing roster of future classics including Digging Holes and Lady (Roll Back The Years), you’ll be humming all the way home.

Bringing beautiful, atmospheric melodies and exceptionally emotional songwriting to the show are Kosoti. The local six-piece are back after dates in the Czech Republic and London, ready to bask you in their warm, folksy vibes and the one-two punch of Allan Hyslop and Rebecca Gregson’s outstanding, seductive vocals.

Hailing from North Tyneside, Street Party in Soho round off the night with their own brand of self-proclaimed liquid candy shop afro-pop, and infectiously upbeat vibe.

The Raglans, Kosoti and Street Party in Soho all play at The Cluny, Newcastle on Sunday 22nd March.
