“Blink” music: we heart The Maccabees

Monday, January 9th, 2012

We LOVE The Maccabees, and we think you will too- maybe you already do! Here’s the video of their latest single, and their new album, Given to the Wild, comes out today. They’re playing at Koko in Camden on the 24th January. See you there!

Every now and again we’ll be slipping in a post or three of some music that we love. If you have recommendations for our playlist, then feel free to leave a comment here, or tweet us, or hit up our facebook page. Looking forward to hearing from you,

Blink Social- The Temper Trap

Thursday, December 24th, 2009

On Monday night we headed through snow storms up to the wilds of Camden on the promise of a brilliant night out. We were not disappointed!  To warm our cockles pre-gig, post snow drifts, we headed into ‘The Blues Kitchen’ for some soul food, Southern States style. Then on down to KOKO. Its a deep red delight of a venue. We have had some stellar nights out here and knew this would be another to add to the list.

We were determined to squeeze just one more gig in before the year was out and The Temper Trap tickets have been winking at us from the notice board for months. This Melbourne based band bought some Aussie sunshine to a very chilly London evening. They did not disappoint. In fact, we think that they exceeded expectations by delivering a set that was far more rocky and raw than the album. We were even treated to a TTT version of Springsteens ‘Dancing in the Dark’! We’ll be going to see them again when they are back in the new year. Hurry back boys!
