The Rackets & The New York Tourists @LiVe Music Venue Preston

There were two supporting acts on before Louis Berry. First on were The Racket. Here’s what lead singer Callum had to say “Louis Berry’s boss, it’s a bit shit going first because you never know if you’re going to get the crowd, but the queue outside’s looking busy.” Doors opened at 7.30 and people flocked […]

The Voques

‘Easier Said Than Done’, a slice of FIFA Soundtrack-ready indie pop.  With synths thrown in for good measure.
