London-based Welsh band The Tubs announce their debut album, Dead Meat, out 27th January via Trouble in Mind, and present its lead single “Sniveller”. Owen “O” Williams and George “GN” Nicholls, the primary songwriters from the group Joanna Gruesome, formed the band in 2018 following a trip to Llawr-Betws caravan park.
The Tubs are also 3/4s of the “evil” Sniffany & The Nits, as well as the decidedly less evil Ex-Vöid. Despite three bands’ sonic differences, there’s a similar derangement at play beneath The Tubs’ jangle. The Tubs make music that incorporates elements of post-punk, traditional British-folk, and guitar jangle seasoned by nonchalant Flying Nun pop hooks and contemporary antipodean indie bands.
