Local musical troupe Fishclaw are launching their new album ‘Swift’ with a party at Firstsite.
Fishclaw is a band of highly skilled musicians who have congregated together from all over South Suffolk and North Essex, calling Colchester their home town. Each having previously worked in different genres from folk, rock, hip hop, jazz to blues and electronic music the combination of each member bringing their own approach and history is what produces such a strikingly original sound. Word of mouth and air play on local and national radio, such as BBC’s 6 Music, has helped to build a following for their extremely highly regarded live shows.
This evening of music and visual projections is building excitement among the local music scene, promising to be quite an experience for those wanting to search out live music that can only be found off the beaten path. As well as the famous live show this will be the first chance for people to purchase the album the evening is celebrating, launched before Fishclaw embark on the festival season using the new tracks to create their latest summers sets.
The event will also showcase other acts from the local area. Rubber Jaw will be bringing their brand of off-kilter rock to the main support slot and experimental duo Unwaves will be kicking off the night’s proceedings in feverish style.
