The tiny London venue could barely contain NARCS as their energy spilled off the stage and into the sizeable crowd that had gathered for the Leeds lads.
NARCS have a charm and flair that deserves a sold-out crowd. Frontman Wilko delivered blisteringly hot vocals while bandmates Joe, John and Stanley dealt dirty reverb and sweltering basslines. The set was breakneck from the get-go, with imposing single ‘Pig’ being particularly memorable with its sultry sophistication.
They exude a magnetism that enticed the Saturday night punters from the pub downstairs, with each person coming through the door mid-set mouthing “woah” as they revelled at the unimpeded energy of the fiery four-piece.
NARCS have it all: stage presence, originality, personality and roofless talent. It’s undeniable that they have the potential to fill festival tents and sell out venues in the near future.
Have a listen to their recorded material and you’ll get what I’m talking about:
