Anyone else noticed it’s getting a bit nippier up north? It could have something to do with Liverpudlian indie rockers, Polar States, travelling up on the jet stream to play at Stockton’s KU Bar. Or it could just be because it’s winter, but really, I don’t think we’ll ever know.

The band’s lo-fi DIY sound will ring throughout Stockton on Friday 25th March, bellowing out their energetic bangers such as the bouncy 2020, and their newest single So Much Happened Since You Came – which takes more influence from slacker rock, but still adheres to the band’s signature sound.

First support of the night will be Motel Carnation. These Geordie lads radiate with swagger on stage, blasting their electronic indie collage. It’s perfectly seen with tracks like the hypnotic Baby You’re A Nightmare, which features an earworm of a hook, and the bold but mysterious Déjà vu (Caught Up). Also supporting are Teesside’s Nice Guy, a band who are infamous for their alternative and futuristic sounds, showcasing it on up-beat anthems like Fake Leather and the warm and gentle Shame.
