Catfish & the Bottlemen are a four piece based in London.
About: This Llundando based four piece play the kind of loud, sexy, explosive music that’s sure to delight any fan of indie rock. At the core these are four guys who have not been afraid to get their hands messy. As an unsigned act in 2012, the band played over 100 lives shows which explains why their live show is wholly faultless. The band play with the kind of tight coherent energy between them that most bands would kill to have an ounce of. Sonically, the band’s anthemic quality is both effortless and original; catchy guitar riffs and pounding drum beats as big as drummer Dr. Bob’s hair that all come together to give the band’s songs the backbone to carry frontman Van McCann’s big and bold voice singing his lyrics that chronicle everything learnt by a man who’s clearly lived his life as fully possible. It’s exciting, fresh and damn well memorable. Catch them live soon – before you know it, you’ll be fighting to get tickets to their sold out arena tours, I’m sure of it.
