Boomgates - ‘Layman’s Terms’
My first introduction to Boomgates came last Thursday as they belted through a great set in support of Thee Oh Sees. I’ve been kind of vaguely aware of them for a while though without actually knowing much about them. Made up of members of Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Dick Diver, The Twerps, Teen Archer and Trial Kennedy, they form a pretty phenomenal ‘supergroup’ (ugh) of sorts.
Sharing vocal duties, Steph Hughes’ cool demeanour combined with Brendan Huntley’s chaotic presence makes their live shows something to be seen. I haven’t been this entertained by a set in a long time.
