Is Tropical @ The Joker 17/03/2015

11/04/2015 By James McLarnon

Is TropicalWhilst it pays to keep an open mind around corporate sponsorship, the fact is that today’s world of declining record sales and a fraction of pence per stream, people willing to put money into music aren’t at all commonplace. Jack Daniels – something this site is clearly a fan of– have furthered their relationship with live music, launching Jack Rocks at legendary venue The Joiners Arms last month. Brighton’s visit comes to the newly opened, Joker and will provide some much needed support for the tough world of small venues.

Headlining this showcase are Is Tropical, a London 4-piece that have released two albums of what in the mid 00’s might have been classed as nu-rave but would probably qualify as the far less ridiculous sounding electro-rock, on labels including French tastemaker Kitsune. They are in the midst of releasing their new record Black Anything via the New York based Axis Mundi Records. We say “in the midst of” as so far we have seen only two of the five 10” vinyl’s the album will be released on. If their live performance is half as imaginative as their release strategy, we’ll be in for some night.

In support CIRQUS are a 2-piece synth-pop electro band, whilst openers Faux Falls are a blend of folk and soft blues.
