The five lads of Ulrika Spacek will expect a warm homecoming when they arrive at Visions. After all, the London Fields festival is only a stone’s throw from their Homerton pad. And given their momentous year so far – which has featured dropping their debut album and jumping on any stage that can hold them – it’s about time to show some love.

If you caught them at their Old Blue Last or Shacklewell Arms gigs last week you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about, because the expansive and cerebral rock band has found their feet. They agreed as well the last time we caught up with them in April after their support slot tour with DIIV got cut short.

“We were just hitting a rhythm,” said singer and guitarist Rhys Edwards. “We were experimenting every night. Playing different setlists and taking our songs in different directions.” Since then, they’ve played and played and played. So by the time Visions kicks off, expect them to be razor sharp and fighting fit.

Old friends Edwards and Rhys Williams formed the band on a night out in Berlin. With them sharing a house in Homerton – a former art gallery – the group adopted a suitably DIY approach to recording and started to forge their abstract and epic jams as they went along. And after digesting the sonic attack of Hey Colossus, Television and Sonic Youth the group drilled down their signature fuzzy rock sound and released their debut, The Album Paranoia, on Tough Love Records in February.

“I want to be the type of band that when there’s a glimpse of someone else, and when you think you’ve got it worked out, it goes somewhere else entirely,” Edwards told us.

Come find out for yourself at Visions on Saturday, August 6th, as Ulrika Spacek joins more than 30 bands in London Fields for a legendary day of food, tunes and fun. But just don’t go on about your love of pizza to Rhys – because he’s still got nightmares of pushing a takeaway menu through your letterbox.
