Horsebeach bring together that familiar, chiming, C86 guitar with brooding melancholic melodies, creating unique Manchester-based dream pop.
Starting out recording lo-fi indie dreams in his bedroom, Ryan Kennedy’s debut self-titled album as Horsebeach turned into what The Skinny called, ‘one of the sleeper hits of the year.’
Mixing spiderweb guitars over a delicate backbone of flittering rhythms and with a glorious sunkissed glow, it takes props from the Captured Tracks roster with the likes of Beach Fossils or Real Estate surely a fixture in Kennedy’s stereo, but he does it with a very Manchester charm.
Now a fully formed four piece and with second album II on the way, first track It’s Alright offers an even more accomplished take on Kennedy’s songwriting style and promises this show will be an absolute breathtaker.
The Picturehouse Cafe Bar is open beforehand for delicious food and drinks.
