By on Friday, 23rd January 2009 at 8:36 am
 

Howling Bells (side)Howling Bells are one of those names I’ve heard before, but never really taken the time to check out. And from a quick listen on their myspace whilst finding pictures for this post, I’ve grown to quite like them – a sort of Australian rocky Goldfrapp. That’s just from one track that opinion though, so I may well be way wide of the mark.

Erm, so, I’ve waffled a bit more than I normally do on these things, but yeah. Catch them out on tour in February and March around the UK.

The London show is part of the NME shows which have already been announced, but it’s been extended into more dates, which is always great for those of you who like them…

Sunday 15th February 2009 – London Islington Academy (NME Show)
Monday 16th February 2009 – Bristol Fleece and Firkin
