For Fans Of: New Order, LCD Soundsystem, Yeasayer
Make sure you’ve got your dancing shoes for a Chain Gang of 1974 appearance. The band, who is masterminded by Kamtin Mohager, brings a nostalgic, ‘80s-inspired dance party to stage. But that’s not to say they’re dependent on copying synth-lines and melodies from decades ago. The band’s energetic stage presence, roaring guitars and pulsing, fresh rhythms should make for a nice alternative for broken-hearted LCD Soundsystem devotees.
