East Berlin comes to East London: the genre-defying DIY trio 1914s sling their raw, aggressive power onto the dancefloor, and an insanely electrifying frontwoman to the stage. Lead singer Shay brings a serious set of lungs and an almost frightening mystique to proceedings, backed up by a gut-wrenching rhythm section of beats/bass/synth played by Josephyn, and the unapologetic animal energy of guitarist and noise-maker Jimi. With a heavy collective set of influences leaking out from Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Kills, 1920s anti-art to 1980s David Lynch; it’s all cut-and-pasted into 1914s’ 21st Century sonic collage and spit out on stage. 1914s have been honing their sound and stagecraft since forming in 2009. Coming from hard-working bands The Veez and Beverly, together 1914s are driven by musicality, playfulness and an obsession with doing something horrifically magic with their 3 minutes.
