Headlining The Old Blue Last, London – 23rd March
Manchester punk-pop quartet White Eskimo release their four-track, debut EP 100x on March 23rd. Songs about meeting girls, making mistakes and living life to the full capture their personalities perfectly. The title track, which has its roots as much in garage rock as it does punk-pop, debuted on BBC Introducing two months ahead of release.
“100x is about waking up after an incredible dream and wanting to relive it,” says singer Will Sweeny. “But you can’t. So it’s about appreciating every moment of happiness and taking nothing for granted.”
The EP was recorded in studios including Cheshire’s Castle Rock and Liverpool’s Motor Museum and produced by James Lewis (Rudimental, Rae Morris), during sessions for the band’s debut album, due later this year.
White Eskimo met in their late teens and have spent the past two years writing songs and playing live in and around Manchester. Their sound is a sum not only of their shared influences – Foo Fighters, Green Day, Blink 182 – but of their contrasting tastes. Hence, shape-shifting time signatures, massed backing vocals, riotous riffs and stuttering, staccato beats find their way in songs that boast the arms-aloft optimism of the best of Britpop, nod to The Jam and Nirvana and ooze the youthful energy of early Green Day.
