We caught IST IST during IVW this year and were amazed by their song craft and deep dark melodic tones and had to get them over to York.
joining them we have a superb line up of the best young post-punk talent in Yorkshire at the moment as we welcome
The Black Lagoons
Established in late 2014, Ist Ist have forged a formidable reputation on the back of uncompromising, intense headline shows at prestigious Manchester venues such as The Ritz, Gorilla and The Deaf Institute. Through word of mouth, they have grown organically in size without label or management support to the point where they are outselling established touring bands.
Accompanying these live shows, the band have released five singles and in April 2018, their debut EP Spinning Rooms along with acclaim from independent publications, won admirers from across the world and received regular airplay from Steve Lamacq on BBC Radio 6. The ensuing tour in support of the EP included dates that took the band back to London and on their first venture abroad to play in Berlin.
Regularly condemned as too ‘out there’ to be successful; through sheer determination, hard work and a bulging catalogue of songs, Ist Ist continue to silence the doubters and move from strength to strength. Displaying an arrogance akin to the greatest Manchester bands, Ist Ist are constructing their own mould rather than attempting to fit into one. It’s time to listen.
