Earlier this year and kick starting the live scene into it’s festival season, we had the pleasure in attending and the honor of sponsoring a brand new MicroFestival. Jealous Lovers Club, the renowned and much loved promoters teamed up with Juxtaposed Club Nights to provide what was one of the best live events this year held at the prolific Gwdihw– in association with Circuit Sweet and Cardiff’s Quench Magazine.
The entire day was nothing but perfection! With 12 acts playing across two stages, all of which adding to the uplifting atmosphere. The day was full of talented artists showcasing their abilities to the venue, each act was another to discover and to fall in love with.
Drawing in the crowd to the second stage, the circuit sweet stage, about half way though the Microfestival, and filling the room with nothing but fuzz the tentative noise pop duo Playlounge captivated the crowd. Playlounge are an energetic noise rock two piece.Consisting of Saam (drums, vocals) and Laurie (guitar). Formed in Lewisham, south London in 2010. The duo’s set consisted of pure punk angst, delectable amount of distortion and abrasive drum beats. Playlounge are an act you need to see live!
We’ve got plenty more artist features to follow but until then make sure you go and check out Playlounge, if you haven’t already done so- these two are having such a rewarding year with releases and shows and it’s fantastic to see. And of course check out and show some support to the wonderful Jealous Lovers Club.
