Catfish and the Bottlemen are a four-piece from North Wales. They are definitely ones to look out for, in my opinion. Their sound is loud, riotous and using their own words ‘explosive’ guitar rock, and it couldn’t be more true of that in their live shows.
They glide through their set with ease, every song being engulfed with guitars and a heavy dose of drums, making their performances every bit the epitome of rock n roll, pure class. They are a band who know what they are doing and can successfully achieve this, which makes for a great live set.
With songs like Sidewinder, Brokenarmy and A.S.A, they are sure to have a long career ahead of them and I, for one, can’t wait to see how it turns out. Never has a support band, I’ve seen before, been so exciting as Catfish and the Bottlemen. I can’t recommend seeing them live any more than that.
You’re missing out on something great if you don’t go and see these guys live. They are definitely headliners, their sound is too big not to heard on a huge stage, but it was great to get a chance to see them on a small stage, which I’m sure will be a rare opportunity. Big things ahead for these guys.
