New Band of the Week: Stagecoach


Sounds like: Los Campesinos!, Good Shoes, Let’s Wrestle.

In a nutshell: Surrey band who perform junk-pop juggernauts about hot dogs, chess-leagues and Buffy.
In their own words:  “We got compared to Wilco a lot in reviews, which is quite flattering… Their folk element shines through in our music.”

Best song: ‘Hieroglyphics’ is a song so contagious it will make your freshers’ flu look positively meek.

Fact: Stagecoach began life as a Mumford & Sons-esque country-folk group. But then again, Glasvegas used to sound like The Libertines, and look at them now.

Live: Will be performing at Swn Festival in Cardiff on 21st October and are expected to announce a nationwide tour in the coming weeks.
