"..defiantly euphoric drumbeats and poignant lyrics..." - Gigwise
"Bright and tight, they make an excellent noise…"
- BBC Introducing
BRIDGES are delighted to announce the forthcoming release of AA side BFF / Ballgowns on 7” vinyl to celebrate their UK summer tour.
BFF is an uplifting anthem that creates a brooding euphoric wall of alternative indie showcasing Ethan Proctor’s stunning voice, while Ballgowns is a laid back surf ballad with meandering guitar and full harmonies. Described as a cross between Kings Of Leon and The Teardrop Explodes, Bridges are a band that understand the importance of good hooks, and have spent the last two years honing their guitar driven sound into an irresistible force with one purpose - to make people move.
The band are Ethan Proctor (vocals and guitar), Josh Redman-Thomas (guitar), Henry Matthews (bass) and Joe Lane (drums). They have supported the likes of Little Matador, George Ezra, To Kill A King and Kids In Glass Houses. They’ve also graced the stage at a number of festivals in 2014, including Glastonbury, Dot To Dot, Liverpool Sound City and Arctangent. Their refined yet expansive sound utilising soaring vocals and crashing guitars is sure to win over fans of indie and alternative music as well as the more discerning hard rock fan.
BRIDGES will be spending this summer touring the UK and you can catch them at the following live dates:
18th July - Harbourside Festival - Bristol
31st July - Y Not Festival - Derbyshire
1st August - Indiependance Festival - Cork, Ireland
15th August - New Age Festival - Somerset
BFF / Ballgowns is out now on vinyl via Bear Pit Records.
