Micky Blouse & supports (18+) - The Sunflower Lounge - Birmingham

The Future Sound Project returns to The Sunflower Lounge with another exciting line up bringing the best new talent in the Midlands to Birmingham.On this show we will be showcasing;Micky Blouse - Upon uprooting to Sheffield, Coventry singer songwriter Kyle McGurk curated his new musical venture under the adopted stage name of Micky Blouse. The project came to fruition as a welcome distraction from the monotony of university academia and the mundanities of student life. After the output increased and words of encouragement were offered by course-mate and drummer Paolo Lombardo the project expanded. Debut single ‘I Wonder’ is a result of the confusing mind-set it was crafted in. Bright indie-pop shimmers on the surface yet the narrative which pervades the song couldn’t be further its pop soaked hooks. The lyrics are a bold insight into the mind of a teenager in the midst of depression. The lead hook in ‘I Wonder’ represents the constant questioning derived from an anxious mind and, as is depicted, those questions vary vastly; ‘I wonder if I’ll be happy again maybe?’ ‘I wonder why I hate the sight of youth today? Shot a shot to forget everything’. The track is an exploration into millennial life and mental health through upbeat melodies and infectious hooks.

There hasn’t been a major name out of Stourbridge since The Wonder Stuff in the 90s. This bunch are the next one.’ – Mike Davis (Brum Notes / www.roots-and-branches.com/) www.facebook.com/ofkingsandcaptainswww.youtube.com/ofkingsandcaptainswww.instagram.com/ofkingsandcaptainsWhite Noise Cinema - White Noise Cinema hail from the trifecta of West Midlands small-town misery that is Bewdley, Kidderminster and Stourport. There are currently 6 of us. Used to be 7, but there’s only so much room on stage at the Dog and Duck. Our average age lingers somewhere around the late 20’s, but we smell so much older. Three of us were part of an overly ambitious prog band in the dying years of the decade we now depressingly refer to as the noughties. We met at Kidderminster College, where we spent more time in the pub than at lectures. As for the rest? When you’re circling the gutter you always tend to pick up a few loose ends. Mercifully, those loose ends turned out to be pretty talented and pretty affable.If asked to describe the music itself, we’d say it’s loud, but not in an obnoxious way. Like the low roar of a cotton wool car crash. There’s also lots of wailing, fuzz and living machine noise. Imagine a shonky nightclub in the late 80s in some unnamed European city from a knock-off Bond movie. We’d be the ones supplying the tunes.http://www.whitenoisecinema.comhttp://faceboook.com/whitenoisecinemabandhttps://www.instagram.com/whitenoisecinema/https://soundcloud.com/whitenoisecinema/unperson/s-9XoN4https://soundcloud.com/whitenoisecinema/thin-skin-live-overdubs2https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eu0NZrmjZU0Akande - Mixing guitar-driven indie instrumentals and pop hooks with disco and funk grooves, Akande will be releasing their debut single ‘Insert Song Name Here’ in August 2019.��Hailing from Wolverhampton, Akande features singer/guitarist/programmer Abi Akande, guitarist/Singer R.J Reilly, bassist/singer Josh Lloyd-Jones and drummer Rhys Biddle-Jones
