Live Music Preview: Sad Day for Puppets @ The Windmill

Sad Day For Puppets.jpg Sweden produces more than its fair share of great bands and dreamy shoegazers Sad Day for Puppets are no exception. The band play The Windmill this Friday in support of the UK release of their début album, "Unknown Colours". With My Bloody Valentine’s recent reformation, The Horrors surprise change in direction and the popularity of acts such as M83, it’s fair to say shoegazing is firmly back in fashion, so their timing couldn’t be better. Fronted by Anna Eklund, the melodious quintet are particularly reminiscent of early Lush, and with its shimmering guitars, and delicate vocals “Unknown Colours” sounds like it’s just fallen through time from the early 90s.

Sad Day for Puppets play The Windmill in Brixton on Friday 24nd July. Support comes from fellow shoegazer types, The Tamborines and the Teenage-Fanclub-esque Army Navy. Tickets are £5 on the door.
