Manchester indie pop outfit Dutch Uncles kick off their 2023 tour at the home of music and culture in Sunderland, Pop Recs, on Saturday 15th April.

This tour will be for their newest album, True Entertainment, which leans heavily into the progressive and new-wave elements of their bright sound. It’s the most fun release so far but still asks plenty of existential and introspective questions, such as: What is success? Am I enough? How can I be better? (and can I even afford to be better?)

The band, who are on the Memphis Industries roster with local heroes Field Music, are a much loved live act and are often the first names on the team sheet when festival organisers start putting their events together. Their slick and bouncy brand of music, mixed with distinctive vocals and dance moves from lead singer Duncan Wallis makes for an interesting but addictive musical experience that has seen the band build a cult fan base.

Supporting the band on the night are electro-poppers Noprism and avant-garde electro-poet Faithful Johannes.

Dutch Uncles perform at Pop Recs Ltd, Sunderland on Saturday 15th April.
