After launching their debut EP Are You Listening in February, Ideal Club’s neo-grunge sound has been impressing live audiences and critics alike.

Counteract Magazine described the EP as “hands aloft music” with “feral, ferocious riff work, and angst-riddled anthems”. In the first six months of 2017 the band has performed in Birmingham, Manchester, and London, and is looking forward to gigs around the UK, as they prepare for their follow up release at the end of 2017.

Plus support from MALLAVORA

Four 20-something students from Birmingham are bringing a new sound to 2017, a homemade mix of heavy music, light vocals and accessible lyrics.

Inspired by the Arctic Monkeys, Gallows and Radiohead, the band have released 2 singles together after over a year of endless jamming at Robannas studios which is just a stones throw away from their halls of residence.

Larry, guitarist, songwriter and student in mechanical engineering, started the band with Brad in first year of university as roommates. Not long after, the band evolved and they were joined by Ellis and Jack to make the full sound.
