Guildford’s The Estevans bring their unique brand of indie-rock to KU, Stockton on Friday 31st January as part of their Independent Venue Week celebrations, in a line up which also includes Michael Gallagher, Pink Tide and Nice Guy. Taking influence from the likes of The Beatles, The Libertines, The Strokes, Arctic Monkeys and Oasis the band’s riff-based sound is energetic, youthful and raw.

We caught up with they head to Teesside to find out more about them.

When did you form your band? What inspired you to make music together?
We formed in late 2016. We found that we had a similar taste in music and from a young age, we all wanted to do more than just listen to it.

How would you describe your sound?
Inbetweeners soundtrack.

How has your music evolved since you first began playing music together?
We’ve developed as songwriters and musicians, so in-hand our newer songs are better than older songs and it goes without saying, it’s gonna continue like that.

How important have independent music venues been in your success as a band?
It’s where every single band starts out. Therefore, to answer your question, every single band will give you the same answer: they’re very important.

Out of all the music venues you have played, which are your favourite?
Camden Assembly, it’s where our next London headline is in late February.

We also have a lot of love for The Star Inn in Guildford, we played our first shows there.

What can people expect from your Independent Venue Week show at KU on 31st January?
Good tunes, bad haircuts.
