TWM Live: Monster Florence + The Baskervilles
Looking for a cheeky local show by Monster Florence? Here’s your answer.
Friday 22nd March at Three Wise Monkeys Colchester.
The six-piece emerging Hip Hop act will be joined on the night by The Baskervilles on what will be a special gig.
Monster Florence continue to make serious waves across both sides of the Atlantic following two EP releases ‘The Groove’ in 2016 and last year’s ‘Bad Gear’. With their debut going straight in at No.5 in iTunes Hip Hop Charts, last year’s second body of work saw them receive heavyweight plaudits from the likes of Pigeons & Planes and Notion Magazine due completely to the strength of their underground heat through tracks like ‘Anne Boleyn’ and ‘Gwolla’ – sending serious Underachievers and Flatbush Zombies signals.
Now coming through with a self-produced new cold banger in ‘Look at The Strength’, its Monster Florence’s dark innovation on the flow, crisp hooks and icy, brooding instrumental that will continue to generate intrigue around the unorthodox crew. Made up of Alex Osiris, Dream McLean, Wallace Rice, Tom Donovan, Cameron Morrell and Jonny Poole – they’re the kind of undeniably wavy, cult underground project that reminds exactly why the UK remains such a thrilling place for new musical forms – a signature that’s already seen them support the likes of KRS One and showcase on BBCR1, 1Xtra and BBC6 Music amongst others.
The Baskervilles are a 4 piece rock band hailing from Ipswich, delivering a jet black prognosis of twenty something life through a blend of raw energy, hip-hop influenced grooves and the syncopated grind of 8 bit guitar.
Doors 8pm, starts 8.30pm on the top floor of Three Wise Monkeys.
Tickets £6 available online via TicketWeb UK
Over 18s only.
