In an overdue, COVID-hit and long awaited return to the North East, Los Angeles three-piece Flat Worms will be executing their consistently superior sound on stage at The Cluny, Newcastle on Saturday 4th June. Frenetic and kinetic, with whirling psych guitars which bend and screech alongside fast-paced drums and repetitive vocals, their live show promises to be dynamic indeed. With a further album release, 2020’s Antarctica, and latest single The Guest, under their belts since their last visit, there is definitely a plethora of options to be performed.

It’s fair to say their newer music has more direction and seems tamer than 2017’s Motorbike or the earlier release Petulance; which feels fanciful and instrumentally-led without being intoxicating. By far though, Red Hot Sand from their debut EP is the track for mea euphoria-inducing trip out which takes me back to my youth!

All in all, expect a fuzzy, blissed-out garage rock freak out with flares of post-punk genius; you can guarantee this will be a hot, sweaty, sticky one and if it’s not, were you even really there?
