Duncan Lloyd, the guitarist from Mercury Music Prize nominated and treasured Newcastle rockers Maximo Park, is set to play his first and only local gig at Bobiks on Saturday 7th September showcasing his recent solo album, Outside Notion, with the added magic of a full live band.

Outside Notion offers bags of soul, addressing lyrically what it means to be human, from loneliness to temptation and everything in between. It’s a complex and distinctive collection of tracks which establishes Lloyd as an effortless songwriter, the likes of Young Dreams demonstrates the album’s flare and vigour, bursting with depth and texture; melancholic drones are weaved together with psychedelic violins and delicate strings blend with infectious electric beats. Given the full band treatment, these songs can’t fail to be impressive to witness.

Support comes from Teesside’s punky indie rockers Salsola, themselves currently riding high on strong praise for recent releases, and with new material in the pipeline they’ll provide more than complimentary accompaniment.
