It can be a tough trek to the top of pop. Some bands confuse us with their apparent seamless rise, whilst others labour for years before we finally realise their brilliance – think Ryan Adams and his Whiskeytown days.
There are different ways to make it. Some bands write and write and write. Others gig, gig, gig. Either way, it can be a pretty trying endeavour. That is why we here at The Camden Store want to commend those that really do put in the effort, those that don’t take no for an answer, those that are prepared to convince the cynical crowd that they are worth their time.
So, here’s to Standard Fare! Following a storming performance at SxSW this year, these indie boys (and girl) are fighting their way into a crowded market place. And, they are fighting hard. They are heading for the gigging route to the top, performing at Proud (25th September), the Lexington and the Wilmington over the next few weeks. They will also be squeezing in trips to Manchester, Wakefield, Bristol and Cambridge. Next stop – back to America.
We recommend that you check them out. Their innocent poppy sound may yet resuscitate the summer. Plus, you never know, you might just like them.
