Indie Midlands Presents Something Leather + LØE + Special Guests
On the rise Something Leather is now taking over in 2020 with their debut EP “Midnight Reverie” celebrating their elegant take on dark alternative rock. With vintage electric organ complementing eerie, untamed guitar noise, all tied together by relentless rhythmical drum beats and an array of bass synths and electronic accompaniment, Something Leather continue to entice fans through their uniquely melancholic yet pulsating sound.
A triumphant 2019 saw successful UK and European tours establish an increasing following for the band, with singles ‘Sip the Thrill’ and ‘Velvet’ securing critical acclaim and a buzz of attention from Clash Magazine, Dork and more. The year culminated with latest single “Lullaby” garnering further support from the likes of Flying Vinyl and BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq.
The trio have already gained a reputation for explosive live shows thanks to a host of support slots with up-and-coming bands including Black Midi, Saint Agnes, Sophie and the Giants, Calva Louise and Phobophobes.
Citing influences ranging from Nick Cave and Queens of the Stone Age, to the Kills and Wolf Alice, Something Leather are an intriguingly captivating group with their intricate world that oscillates between fantasy and nightmare.
