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.
The final band to take to the Circuit Sweet stage and one of the most powerful performances of the night came from vivacious trio Woahnows. Plymouth indie-punk trio wowed the crowd with their infectious set. Think Against Me! meets Japandroids and Les Savy Fav, with Dananananaykroyd-esque guitar work and gang vocals packed full of hooks and earworms. The trio are personally one of our favorites and a highlight from the day. Frantic compositions with heartfelt vocals, buoyant bass beats with crashing drum fills, punk angst and a wall of fuzz. We urge you all to get to a Woahnows show, you will not be disappointed, you will however be left with a taste for more.
We’ve only got one more artist feature to follow but if you can’t wait until that, have a look over the plethora of acts we’ve already featured here.
Trust us when we say go see Woahnows live. And don’t forget to support the incredible work from Jealous Lovers Club.
