Carnival Club a new Manchester based four piece give old fashioned rock n roll a youthful indie spin.

Carnival Club may have been together less than six months but their well-rehearsed line in buzzy indie rock n roll defies their infancy as a band. They have already played some of Manchester’s favourite venues including Factory, Academy and The O2 Ritz, sharing the stage with some of the city’s most liked local bands.

Carnival Club’s first two public tracks Kisses and Head were courageously slices of indie pop, having and having spent 5 months gigging around the North, they have already developed and progressed tenfold. Their latest offering House of Cards has acquired an ambitious rock edge that their first two tracks didn’t, this truly intensifies the momentous fuzzy catchiness of Carnival Club’s sound.

Carnival Club, guitarist Eddie Moxon, bassist George Peel, drummer Joe Lodge and vocalist/guitarist Kai Jon Roberts spent much of September in the studio recording their first EP and released the first song from the EP House of Cards on September 29th 2016.

Carnival Club are supporting Fairchild along with Young Monarch and High Tide 15:47 at The Soup Kitchen, Manchester on Saturday 19th November 2016. Tickets available now.
