CUCAMARAS – ” Death Of The Social “

Posted: November 22, 2022 in MUSIC

Hotly-tipped indie and post-punk quartet from Nottingham. On the day that Nottingham Forest were promoted to the Premier League for the first time in 23 years, Cucamaras were playing a gig at Rock City, their hometown’s most famous venue. Taking to the stage as part of Dot To Dot Festival at 2pm, a few hours before the Forest team played Huddersfield Town in the Championship Play-Off Final at London’s Wembley Stadium, the four-piece got their set in just before much of the crowd – and the band – decamped to the city’s pubs to watch the biggest game the team had played in decades.

Nottingham is definitely on a buzz at the moment,” vocalist Olly Bowley says six months later, The band across town at The Chapel, the venue they played their first gig at a few years ago. “It’s good for the city, and it does well for the music scene as well,” he adds in reference to Forest’s success after that 1-0 victory in late May. “I feel sorry for the bands who clashed with the game, though!”

Forming in 2019, Cucamaras – Bowley, co-vocalist Josh Hart, bassist Dan McGrath and drummer Joe Newton – started out playing straight-up indie songs and gigging around Nottingham before, like many of us, they used the pandemic as an opportunity for reflection and reinvention.

‘Death of the Social’ distributed via 3tone Records on behalf of Cucamaras.
