“Confidently bellowing and cutting shapes in front of the microphone, their frontman seems to have forgotten this is only their third gig ever, seemingly thinking it’s 12 months down the line and he’s playing the headline slot they’re surely headed for.”

Torches are a London based quintet consisting of vocals, guitar, organ, drums and samples. With primal beats at the heart of their music, electronic-oriented rhythms combine with broody vocals and walls of both aggressive and atmospheric sound. Theirs is a frontman-led performance with a lyrical conscience and a healthy air of cynicism; guttural howls bring charge to the guitar and keyboard-heavy textures. Torches supported Is Tropical on their debut show earlier this year.
