Last night we had the pleasure of opening for the iconic The Jesus And Mary Chain at the Guild of Students in Liverpool!

The venue was pretty full up by the time we started playing and it was lovely to see a few familiar faces in the crowd. It was our first show on such a massive scale and we appreciated the folks that came a bit earlier to catch our set. 

A lovely time was had by all - and The Jesus and Mary Chain were amazing. We'd been listening to them on repeat all week and it was a real treat to hear them live. 

A wonderful night surrounded by mates that ended with a giant veggie pizza - speaking of pizza if anyone is feeling peckish we have another show tonight at Maguire's Pizza Bar in Liverpool - Opening for The Flash Bang Band, from Brighton. Come for a slice and a few tunes!

2015 got off to a strange start - We had to change from our previous name last month, but things have been on the up and up since then. We got to play with The Mary Chain, and we also have news to reveal soon regarding our debut album!

Although Bathymetry are a bit of an odd pairing with tonight’s headliners – all melodic basslines, funny rhythms and jazzy 3/4 time signatures – they’re more than worth checking out.

Winning the audience over with their natural charm whilst producing a hugely engaging set. At times sonically there’s an air of the Delta Five about them with scratchy guitars and strident vocals, but they also have the ability to rather dizzyingly change pace ala Throwing Muses whilst at other times the harmonies and languid gliding bass lines conjure up a rather more down to earth, folksier Warpaint. And despite some of the pun-tastic track titles such as ‘Goblin Fruit’ and ‘Jarmalade’ there’s certainly a sly subtly and artful deftness to their off the wall sound, which under a veneer of ear pleasing pop masks rather darker predilections. This of course makes them a very interesting proposition indeed.

In Liverpool, it was Bathymetry who were picked to kick off proceedings, a choice that may have surprised many, but the young trio of Ariel, Emily, and Dave Annis quickly dispelled any doubts as to their merit, winning the audience over with their natural charm whilst producing a hugely engaging set.
