Former Muncie Girls co-founder Lande Hekt brings her charming singer-songwriter indie rock to Sunderland’s Pop Recs Ltd. on Wednesday 23rd November in support of House Without A View, her second solo album release in as many years. Anyone familiar with 2021’s Going To Hell album knows Hekt gives voice to her own introspection, adds her personal perspective on socially aware issues and combines her experiences with an often bewildering outside world. Her new album focuses on these and plenty of other concerns, not least being part of, and a strong advocate for, the queer community, all delivered in her usual self-effacing and tenderly (for the most part) modest manner.

Support comes from Newcastle’s achingly endearing and poetically earnest indie rock songwriter Holly Rees, pitched somewhere between Laura Marling and Courtney Barnett, she’s an instant favourite the moment you hear her perform. Also on the bill are Middlesbrough-based garage rockers Onlooker, promising to bring their short, sharp, angry songs in a major key, to the gathered audience. Set your antennas to sonic melodic threat. This is a free entry/£5 suggested donation gig so there’s really no excuse for not getting along and having your musical nerves tickled.

Lande Hekt, Holly Rees and Onlooker play Pop Recs Ltd., Sunderland on Wednesday 23rd November.
