A fetish for screenprinted wares, cryptic lyrics and obsessions with fifth dimensional time travel helps garner sense of London quartet Tubelord's erratic sensibilities.

Original members Joseph Prendergast (guitar/vocals) and David Catmur (drums/vocals) are joined by Tom Coulson Smith (bass) and James Elliot Field (keys) to provide an effervescent post-punk explosion of melody, quirkiness and pop sensibilities which bring to mind such acts as Biffy Clyro, DARTZ! and Fugazi. 


Their new album ROMANCE has been picking up a plethora of plaudits from the likes of NME, the BBC and Rock Sound and is sure to take them to the top of the math-pop pile after the recent demise of Danananaykroyd. Support comes from former Meet Me In St Louis frontman Shoes & Socks Off, as well as local favourites Rosa Valle and Toyger.


"Highly melodic indie-pop with big scuzzy rock guitars… It’s hard not to get carried away with their infectiously palpable excitement." - NME
