Best Gigs In London This Week: 24-30 November 2014

Tom Du Croz from LondonGigGuide selects five small/medium gigs around town this week.

Monday 24 November

Echosmith, Barfly, Camden

https://soundcloud.com/echosmith/echosmith-come-together

Echosmith is an American indie pop band formed in February 2009 in Toluca Lake, Los Angeles. The band is composed of four siblings: Graham, Sydney, Noah and Jamie Sierota. Don't miss their gig in Camden tonight. @echosmith, @thebarflyhq

Tuesday 25 November

His New Atlas & Sanarme, The Finsbury, Manor House

https://soundcloud.com/spareroom/abbey-bowden-still

This week's double bill. His New Atlas is 19 year old Eoghan O'Hagan from Northern Ireland. This track blew us away — his power and emotion comes flooding over you in powerful, beautiful waves. Sanarme is the performance name of the stunningly talented Abbey Bowden. She combines moments of ardent strength with utter vulnerability. @HisNewAtlas, @TheFinPub

Thursday 27 November

Seafret, The Islington

https://soundcloud.com/seafretofficial/seafret-give-me-something-1

Seafret is a duo formed by Jack Sedman (vocals) and Harry Draper (guitar) in Bridlington. The name Seafret, as well as being a pun on the guitar fret board, is also a local term for the two boys; it applies to the rolling mists that come in off the North Sea during summer. Now living and performing in London, the sea is what the pair miss the most. @SeafretOfficial, @TheIslington

Friday 28 November

Sophie Barker, The Elgin, Ladbroke Grove

Having previously sung with the likes of Zero 7, Groove Armada and David Guetta, her new album Seagull sees London-based Sophie move on from chill-out. This is a free gig. @TheSophieBarker, @TheElginW11

Saturday 29 November

Bullets With Blue Eyes, Surya, King's Cross

https://soundcloud.com/bullets-with-blue-eyes/this-is-our-love-song

We loved this track; it's the perfect antidote to the polished pop vocals of so many others. It is rough, raw and and has passion. The song tells the story of a less than perfect love affair. Get the chance to listen to it live tonight. @BulletsBlueEyes, @Surya_London
