Brighten The Corners Presents Opus Kink and Deadletter for a co-headline show for Independent Venue Week! Support comes from Flip Top Head and Substation.
The name ‘Opus Kink’ flutters on the lips of the kingdom. The six-piece group - comprised of Angus Rogers, Sam Abbo, Fin Abbo, Jed Morgans, Jazz Pope & Jack Banjo Courtney - blend a dizzying array of influences to create a dark and thundering dish hitherto unknown to the unwitting public.
Early support from Radio 6’s Steve Lamacq, the Charlatans’ Tim Burgess, NME Magazine & other champions bolstered the word-of-mouth notoriety of their wild live show & paved the way for an incoming barrage of new releases and appearances.
Hailing from Yorkshire, now South London rooted, DEADLETTER channel the droll fury of The Fall and the lopsided rhythms of LCD Soundsystem into a strain of vehement post-punk, exploring the darker side of existence through a lens of narrative-driven levity. With members being firm friends from birth, there is an instinctive understanding of movement and danceability to their music worth its' weight in gold, whilst never cheapening the nuance and grit of their sound.. With four singles now under their belt, the only way is upwards for DEADLETTER.
Opus Kink “Horn-fuelled filth-funk, where punk & jazz combine in grimy circumstances” - NME Magazine
DEADLETTER “The next time someone says to me 'why aren’t the young bands writing about politics anymore’ I might well play them DEADLETTER” – Steve LamacqBUY TICKETS
