Felt Tip // In Short

FElt Tip

Felt Tip are three boys and one girl who live in Hackney and who are perfecting a quick-setting quixotic brand of British pop. The guitar is angular, the vocals are deadpan, the vibe is “herky jerky old school indie” and the trousers are impeccably pressed. The pudding-shaped proof lies within the sonic walls of their ‘Simple Things’ EP, four songs of upbeat excellence with a downtrodden demeanour, released on fierce panda on June 9th.

We caught up with them before their EP release at Madame JoJo’s on June 3rd. Get Your Tickets Here.
