Converse Gigs @ 100 Club: Wild Belle


November, 2012

Wild Belle, The 1975, Dan Croll and Matthew Mole

Following a triumphant return last month which saw queues of people lining a rain battered Oxford Street; Converse Gigs @ 100 Club are thrilled to announce Wild Belle will headline the next show on Thursday 15th November with stellar support from The 1975, Dan Croll and Matthew Mole.

Chicago duo Wild Belle caught the attention of music lovers, bloggers and industry alike earlier this year when they released their infectious slice of synth pop ‘Keep You’ via Band Camp. Soon snapped up by Columbia Records, the band have since played shows alongside the likes of Chairlift, The Kills and Polica. As they gear up for the release of their new single ‘It’s Too Late’, the 100 Club show will offer fans a chance to catch them live before the venues grow!

Manchester based and every inch the rock’n’roll stars, The 1975 are already specialist favorites at radio, following the release of their acclaimed ‘Facedown’ EP, last month. Upcoming EP ‘Sex’ has already caught the ears of R1’s  Huw Stephens, Zane Lowe and Fearne Cotton. With atmospheric and ethereal guitars, propulsive drums and urgent lyrics, The 1975 are set to put the long lost band back on the map.

After departing Norwegian band Eye Emma Jedi this summer, Staffordshire based Dan Croll wasted no time in releasing his debut solo single “From Nowhere” which quickly picked up plays on Radio 1 and 6Music. Currently in the studio recording more songs for future release, this will be Dan’s first outing at the 100 Club.

Finally, opening the show is upcoming singer songwriter Matthew Mole, who won the Get Out The Garage search for local talent by Converse in South Africa.
