Future Yard CIC
Future Yard are thrilled to be hosting Islands for the very first time on Thursday 18th April.
The band born from the ashes of The Unicorns in 2005 join us in 2024 in support of their 9th studio album “And That’s Why Dolphins Lost Their Legs” With addictive hooks at every possible turn, Dolphins, stands out as quite likely the strongest and most articulate Islands album yet. Nick Thorburn and band manage to slyly tap into both the pain and the joy of living, often simultaneously, while stripping the music down to its simplest element: a strange sample rubbing up against a bouncing bassline, a snappy kick and snare firing off against a persistent, hooky guitar line.
Their April tour coming to Birkenhead will be pared down to a duo, emphasizing and highlighting the intricacy of the songwriting and the intimacy of the vocals.
