We are super excited to welcome UGLY to the club tonight. Ella Jean stood in for another band earlier this year and she blew us all away. Tonight she's joined by fellow musician, Rob Major and we can't wait to see their set tonight!
Rob and Ella met in 2014 the day after she arrived in London, UK from Calgary, Canada. Rob was playing in his hip-hop band Unexpected Guests in a small room in London Bridge and Ella asked if they could play together. Early on in their collaboration, the two came out to each other. He’s Christian and she’s queer which is simultaneously the most and least important thing about them. Their weirdness and wild, quirky energy only comes out (of the closet) when they join forces as the UGLY duo. They found that, while jazz, hip-hop, soul and funk were their favourite genres to play in, their taste crossed over in punk, shoe-gaze and art rock too. Their method of making is using a singer-songwriter approach to danceable music.
They have released their first single in 2019 called Hesitate which will soon be followed by the EP We Could Never Be Together in late Spring 2019. Look for them to be touring through out the UK and Europe this year.
This Canadian/Australian electronic music duo have influences in hip-hop, electronica, punk, and folk-songwriting synthesised through drum machines, wavy synths, and soulful vocals. Ella sings and Rob produces, but they both write the songs. "When we write, we look into ourselves to see what needs to be said. We hope that you can find a bit of you in that as well."
We are not taking tables bookings for this event but there will be plenty of room on stage side for you to sit and listen to the music. Don't forget to take advantage of the Happy Hour Deals during the performance too!
LATER IN THE EVENING, WE HAVE THE FANTASTIC BRASSHOLES PLAYING THREE SETS OF LIVE MUSIC FROM 9.30PM.
