With a buzz steadily building around them as they finalize their much awaited debut single collection, Banglist is setting the city alight club by club.
With a strange predilection for Molly Ringwald, shoulder pads and slow-dancing to dodgy Phil Collins numbers, which they discovered that they share with pulsingly svelte Swedish electro duo Juno Francis, the two bands have decided to give the city its very own 80s-inspired prom night party at Auster Club this Thursday 11th April.
Expect…well, expect everything and anything, frankly. Apart from delivering powerhouse performances and being generally tight as a Scottish nun, Banglist bring a tee-hee humour to an indpendent live scene all too often lacking in surprises and, dare I say it, humour. So…yeah…expect confetti. At least.

The lovechild of a 60s gentleman and an 80s lady.
Psychedelic and glamorous, haze and glitter, hypnotic and dramatic. her voice flows into your heart and melts it like ice in scotch. As you feel weak in your knees and faint out of pure love you land on his bed made out of silky smooth synth pads. Enjoy your interaction…
