London three-piece Slowcoaches have been touring for a good few years now, holding down full-time jobs to support their primary love. They are a hard working bunch, yet their music shows no signs of being crushed by the daily-grind. In fact, their sound can be defined as a massive ‘fuck you’ to the monotonous routines we all find ourselves stuck in, just to earn some cold, hard cash.

Slowcoaches’ sound is massive – unleashing a cathartic, punk energy through an armoury of thick, heavy guitars and high-speed drums. Their latest single Ex Head is another riotous outing, recently premiering on Noisy and BBC6 Music, but if you want to get a better idea of Slowcoaches’ sense of humour/downright strangeness, check out Ex-Head’s not so glossy video below, showing frontwoman Heather Perkins eating a cake with a picture of her own face on it.

This month the band will be lighting up venues across the country once again, stopping off at Little Buildings in Newcastle on Wednesday 16th March. Two great local bands will be out in support, including Teesside noise-punk urchins Mouses and Toon-based slack-rockers Baker Island, who will both be gearing up for their Evolution Emerging slots later this year.

Slowcoaches, Mouses and Baker Island play Little Buildings, Newcastle on Wednesday 16th March.
