About the tour

With a bright, jangly, hooky sound, London’s Pynch recall the mid-’00s days of post-Libertines guitar pop, but in a very 2020s way. Having caught the attention of producer Dan Carey (Fontaines DC, Hot Chip, Kae Tempest) early on, the band released their debut single, “Disco Light,” on his Speedy Wunderground label in 2019. Following a few more terrific singles, Pynch will release their debut album, Howling at a Concrete Moon, in April which was co-produced by Stereolab drummer Andy Ramsay and the bandleader Spencer Enoch. That mid-’00s nostalgia is front and center on the album’s wonderful first single, “2009,” that opens with the lines, “I’m gonna dye my hair and listen to heavy metal / and skate down to the edge of the world.” Says Spencer, “My overarching concept for the album was to try and capture my experience of what it has felt like to be young and living in Britain at this particular point in history. I’ve tried to take my inner search for meaning and set it against the strange cultural and economic landscape that we find ourselves in.” (15 Artists to watch in 2023 – BROOKLYN VEGA, 2023)
