Costa Acoustic Night is set to hit The Lights in Andover on 31st May 2014, and up until today the Headline act had been unconfirmed. Today (9th April 2014), it has been announced that the fantastic, upcoming band, 'CHAMPS', have agreed to perform.
Champs' debut album has been met with positive reviews, with www.musicomh.co.uk saying, "A frightfully enjoyable record, Down Like Gold pinches the best bits from Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes and Arcade Fire and bundles them up with a glossy pop ribbon. Each track on the LP is 50 cal. oomph, capable of double-tapping your heart and mind – they’ll capture you with potent riffs, then clock you with dark subtexts. It’s a powerful combination. CHAMPS deserve to be gracing grander environs on the back of this album, and while that may not happen, Down Like Gold does ensure that they’ll have thousands of eyes trained on them when they make their next move."
Praise that is well deserved. Visit the website and check out a taste of their music, then hurry to book your tickets to the Costa Acoustic Night in May, but be quick, because they are selling fast!
