Indietracks Warm-Up: Chorusgirl / Model Village / Radio Orwell

  • The Smokehouse South Street Studios 6 South Street IP1 3NU (map)

This is the first Freakverbration gig since October last year, it's another Indie Tracks warm up gig with Chorusgirl and Model Village playing at this years Indie Tracks with local support from Radio Orwell, but this time it's at the new venue The Smokehouse in Ipswich.

Chorusgirl (

"Chorusgirl blend the shimmering dreaminess of 4AD bands like Lush, the noir pop of The Cure and the bittersweet electricity of The Breeders across songs that sparkle with melody and pop nous but are stealthily subverted by something darker. Dig beneath the surface of the perfect pop songs and you’ll find heavy lyrics about saying goodbye, giving up, grief, alienation and loneliness. With their debut album on Fortuna Pop!, Chorusgirl breathed new life into guitar pop, reinvigorating the genre with fresh hooks and sharp-edged songs full of heartache, anger and grit."

Model Village (

Model Village are a self-reliant, squad-based, sophistipop outfit. By setting downbeat, discontented and disheartened lyrics to almost incongruously upbeat, jangly guitar riffs and tight, driving unfussy rhythms they present to you smart commuter pop gems with just that bit more grit and potency than their contemporaries can offer. Though they are desperately trying to rip off Steely Dan, Jim O’Rourke and Red House Painters, reviewers insist that they sit somewhere in the niche between Camera Obscura, St Etienne and The Promise Ring, wherever that may be.
