Written by Arran Dutton – Yes, apparently it’s true, Glastonbury indie band All Us Authors are preparing to leave town. I genuinely hold them in high regard as one of the most exciting groups I’ve seen in the area and although it’s sad that local performances from the lads will become less frequent, they’ve risen from nowhere, made their mark and now it’s time to go out and spread their musical wings. Brighton now awaits for a band whose summer boasts appearances at Farmfest and The Godney Gathering as well as Pilton Party where they supported Miles Kane and Example, but before they set off they’ll return to The King Arthur in Glastonbury tonight for a going away gig. If their previous performances at the venue are anything to go by, it should be pretty special. For those of you who don’t know the Authors, rising music writing star Rhys Buchanan sums them up perfectly: “Traditional indie rock fused with straight up funky bass driven riffs.” For me, their release of single “Tibidabo” is the best representation of the band. It’s a wonderful track; lyrics are delivered with coolness and swagger from vocalist Dan Nixon and as Rhys notes, those funky bass driven riffs hook you. “Animal”, the title track from their debut EP has the feel of early Red Hot Chilli Peppers fusioned with The Futureheads, but that’s where I’m going to draw a line on comparisons; I first became aware of the band when the aforementioned Mr Buchanan sent me a link to their EP with a blurb he had written which noted, “their music is hard to categorise”, and I agreed, they certainly have something unique. In the past few days, All Us Authors has launched their second new single in as many weeks. Teasing their growing army of fans by releasing the latest when their Facebook page got its 600th ‘like’, we were finally introduced to “This Old House”. Both that single and “Run” are linked below and if you like what you hear then head to The King Arthur on Benedict Street tonight; it’s free entry with support act The Frets on at 8.30pm before All Us Authors take centre stage. Find out more about the band on their official Facebook page. Cheeky plug – Rhys Buchanan has interview Matthew Healy from The 1975 for The Fix. Read his interview here and win tickets to their gig at O2 Academy Bristol on Thursday 26th September.
