The Bug Club, Sins & The Heavy Heavy at The Loft, Portsmouth, 2nd December 2021
Sometimes there’s a buzz around a band that proves to be more than warranted. The Bug Club have been steadily making a name for themselves with a series of infectious psych pop tracks that are regular players on 6 Music and have been much lauded by new music connoisseur Marc Riley.
Their visit to The Loft on Thursday was a sell out, despite numerous other gigs taking place locally on the night. With a set worthy of a much longer established band, it’s clear that they’re not only developing a seriously strong catalogue of songs to dip into, but also that their ease in performing draws the crowd in and makes for a lovely warm atmosphere too. You have to wonder how much longer you’ll have the chance to see The Bug Club playing in venues this size for – with more live dates pending you should absolutely grab that chance now if you can.
