Mother of Pearl, Krypton, The Modes & No One Man are all playing at Bar Forty Two from 7.00 pm to 1.00 am tonight (Friday August 15th).
Mother of Pearl is an experimental rock band based in Kent and Sussex. Taking influences from artists such as: Led Zeppelin, The Cure, Siouxsie and the Banshees, PJ Harvey and The White Stripes.
Formed in May 2013 Mother of Pearl have been scouring the local music scene playing original material and the occasional cover in their live shows. Plans for the future are to release a debut EP in 2014.
Quoted as “They sound a little like Siouxsie and the Banshees met a funky band and had a jam session” Mother of Pearl are unique to the music scene with their raw and organic approach to song writing and pushing the boundaries of contemporary experimental rock.
Krypton are a Pop/Rock four piece from the south. They have a broad range of influences with original catchy, infectious tunes and are sometimes seen in the company of Darleks.
The Modes are an alt-rock duo from Brighton formed in the summer of 2013. The duo are two friends Daniel Seccombe (Vocals & Guitar) and Jon Thorley (Drums & Synth) who met at university, studying Music Performance. The Sound is very textual and dynamic, using dirty single note rock riffs and deep synth drones. They are heavily influenced by Wolfmother, The Dead Weather, The Black Keys and The White Stripes.
No One Man are a Brighton based band. Their sounds are influenced by post-hardcore bands such as FFAF and melodic female vocals such as The Duke Spirit.
Bar Forty Two is at 42 Marine Parade on Worthing seafront.
