Love Is All and The Pooh Sticks added to the line-up!
Acclaimed Swedish punk-pop group Love Is All and legendary pop mavericks The Pooh Sticks have just been added to the Indietracks 2010 line-up.
Love Is All have picked up plaudits for their blend of art punk and indie rock since they formed from the ashes of indiepop group Girlfriendo in 2005, and their new album ‘Two Thousand and Ten Injuries’ is an unconstrained and celebratory affair, combining punk guitars, saxophones, disco beats and melodic harmonies.
The Pooh Sticks have reformed exclusively for the Indietracks festival. Forming in the late 80s, the Swansea band started out by using ramshackle pop charm to lighten up the indie scene. They then released a series of well-received albums with a more expansive power pop direction.
Over 40 indiepop bands from across the globe have already been announced for the festival, including Ballboy, White Town, Standard Fare, Allo Darlin’, Shrag, The Smittens and Veronica Falls.
There’s now less than four weeks left to pick up weekend and day tickets at early bird discount prices. These cheaper prices are available until Friday 7 May (the day after the UK general election!).
