Chuck metal, noise, electro and riot-grrrl into a blender and you’ll be halfway to imagining the sheer power of CLT DRP.

This cheekily-named Brighton trio are heading our way for their ever north-east show and promising mosh-pits and industrial beats in equal measure. They’ll be airing cuts from their 2020 debut album ‘Without The Eyes’ alongside newer releases including probably the most hardcore Dolly Parton cover in existence. They’re a band never short on feminist attitude with lyrics tackling misogyny, toxic masculinity, and body shaming head-on. Fan favourite ‘Where The Boys Are’ exemplifies the band’s singularly stunning electro-metal, which dances around some spliced-up synths before Annie Dorret’s commanding vocals burst through walls of distortion and thrashing drums to rage at “boys’ club” sexism. It’s not hard to imagine that the band are even more breathtaking live, with scope to really amp up their fuzz and envelop an audience in their wholly ferocious sound. I can’t wait. LB
