Alternative four-piece INHEAVEN, who fuse grunge, dark-pop and indie, will play in Cambridge this week as part of their UK tour.

Before jetting off to North America for a two-month tour with Manchester indie four-piece Pale Waves, they’re playing at the Portland Arms this Thursday (February 1) having released their debut album in September last year.

INHEAVEN came about when vocalist/guitarist James Taylor and bassist Chloe Little bonded over a shared love of bands who inspire young people to see the world in a different way. The pair embarked on an audio-visual project, recruiting their neighbour Jake Lucas on lead guitar and Joe Lazarus on drums. To test out their creative compatibility, Little put together a 30 second video of images and asked Taylor to write music over it.

Things clicked into place pretty fast as they wasted no time getting the word out in their own unique way. They set up a mysterious website with hidden videos, made fanzines, produced their own artwork, and sent their songs to blogs around the world. Things began to hot up for the band after the releases of their first official single ‘Regeneration’ on Julian Casablancas’ Cult Records label.

That ascent continued following live shows with Circa Waves, Jamie T and Blossoms, while Annie Mac, Huw Stephens, Steve Lamacq, Chris Hawkins, Chris Martin and John Kennedy have all backed the band with radio play.

The gig starts at 7pm and support comes from Thyla.

The gig is hosted by Green Mind Gigs, who put on events around Cambridge and other cities.
