Balloon Machine presents Crake w/ Gold Baby

Please note this is an 18+ event

After being hand-picked by Big Thief’s Buck Meek to support the band on their European tour, Crake return to Manchester for their first headline show! The Leeds quartet released single ‘Glycerin’ to praise from The Skinny, GoldFlakePaint and For The Rabbits earlier this year, later giving the song a home alongside two new tracks on EP ‘Dear Natalie’.  The group have been lauded for swathing their alt-folk in earthy autumnal tones.

Dreamy grunge-pop fermented with the knotty impatience and potent vulnerability of obsessive-compulsive songwriter Siân Alex, North London outfit @goldbabyband serve an own-brand concoction of confessional indie-pop. Singles ‘Philadelphia’ and ‘500/1’ impressed us so much at Balloon Machine HQ, that we just had to ask them to play for us – you can imagine how thrilled we were when they said yes.
