Batsch - Disco Live Act in Coventry

Batsch Short Info

Batsch are an indie pop quartet based in Coventry, England.
Formed in 2013 following the breakup of their previous project, Don't Move, singer/guitarist Mason Le Long, bassist Joe Carvell, and drummer Matt Rheeston recruited accordionist/multi-instrumentalist Andy Whitehead to join them in their new venture. Their smart, groove-oriented dance-pop takes nods from classic art rock like Talking Heads as well as more modern contemporaries like Field Music and Dutch Uncles. Reviving their former group's relationship with British label Tin Angel Records, Batsch released their debut EP, Tiles, in October 2013 and its follow-up, also a five-track EP, Collar, in 2014. They are set to release their debut full-length album in Autumn 2015.
