Australia's Blackchords head to Liverpool for Sound City

Australia's Blackchords head for Liverpol to play this year's Sound City festival. The band are all set to wow the crowds and give us a taste of their infectious tunes.

Following an overwhelmingly positive response to the album in their native Australia, Blackchords dipped their toes into European waters last autumn, where they wowed crowds with the intensity of their live performances in both France and the UK, which culminated in a headline show at The Barfly with support from fellow Aussies, Yves Klein Blue.

During this brief inaugural visit to the UK the band quickly made waves, with the video for debut single ‘At World’s End’ play-listed on MTV2 and NME Radar TV while Kerrang! Radio’s Alex Baker made them his featured artist of the week proclaiming “LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Blackchords!”

Since returning to Oz, the band have spent the long Australian summer touring and winning over crowds with their dynamic textured sounds which continue to win favorable comparisons with the likes of Ryan Adams, Elbow and Jeff Buckley.

The Blackchords sound, crafted by lead singer and song-writer Nick Milwright, has been influenced by his diverse life experiences both as a soldier and then incredibly as a ballet dancer, training at one of Australia top dance schools.

Unbelievably, it wasn’t until he was in his twenties that he felt ready to open his mouth and sing. Blackchords was born and they signed to Dust Devil Music in 2008.

The Blackchords hit Liverpool Sound City on 21st May, catch them live at Hannah's Bar.

Pretty Little Thing by Blackchords is out on June 14th through Dust Devil Music
