Showcase Announcement: Crake + Gold Baby

After being hand-picked by Big Thief’s Buck Meek to support the band on their European tour, Crake return to Manchester to play our first 2020 showcase on Saturday, February 8th! The Leeds quartet released single ‘Glycerin’ to praise from The Skinny, Gold Flake Paint and For The Rabbits earlier this year, later giving the song a home alongside two new tracks on EP ‘Dear Natalie’.  The group have been lauded for swathing their alt-folk in earthy autumnal tones.

Backing them up are Balloon Machine faves, Gold Baby. The North London outfit’s dreamy grunge-pop is fermented with the knotty impatience and potent vulnerability of obsessive-compulsive songwriter Siân Alex. Singles ‘Philadelphia’ and ‘500/1’ impressed us so much at Balloon Machine HQ, that we just had to ask them to play for us – you can imagine how thrilled we were when they said yes.
