“Your Name Upon It”
The more time I spend with Sketches, the more I realise that this city has something very special on its hands. Much like Newcastle band Kubichek a few years back, they play confident indie without being too confident. There’s just a bit of dreaminess and vulnerability that will have you coming back for more, which starkly sets this lot apart from many of their peers. It should do the trick if you’re missing Grammatics.
If you’re looking for somewhere to start, download the enclosed track and the tune “Bleed Victoria.” The band is hard at work on their debut album, which will be out later this year. Here’s a preview from some new material, courtesy of a session with Amazing Radio.
