grasshopper: ‘young, bracingly imaginative teens playing moody keyboard-splashed post-punk in the early Factory spirit’ NME DIY/John Peel legacy issue (Oct ’14) ‘there’s a spectral, swirling atmosphere as the Brighton band create astonishing soundscapes that are totally beyond their youthfulness’ John Robb, Louder Than War live review (Aug ’15) grasshopper’s post-punk/shoegaze sound, open-minded instrumentation and DIY ethos have attracted the attentions of Grant Hart, Mike Watt, Gillian Morris, Sam Dook, Terry Bickers and Tim Burgess, amongst others.

With two self released EPs already under their belts, grasshopper have gigged extensively locally, as well as performing at several major festivals like Isle of Wight Festival, Kendal Calling and Festival Number 6, as special guests of Tim Burgess. grasshopper have also supported The Charlatans in Worthing, and The Go! Team at their hometown tour date in Brighton. They will soon be releasing their first 7" single, recorded by Cure/Sisters of Mercy/Human League producer David M Allen.

In the words of Grant Hart: ‘they’re the future of rock and roll... if I had the money, I’d start a record label just for them.’
