Gaffa Tape Sandy is well and truly in a well-deserved category of their own. Having picked up the covenant ICM Award for Greatest Discovery in 2018, it’s no surprise that they’re set to make the cut this year.
Formed in 2015 by three friends with a desire to do something loud and exciting, Gaffa Tape Sandy is quickly gaining popularity thanks to a series of incendiary live shows and instantly memorable garage-punk/rock tunes.
The Brighton/Bury St Edmunds outfit’s brand of giddily frantic, high-octane hyper rock‘n’roll has already landed them support slots with acts including IDLES, Peace, SuperGlu, Bloody Knees and Indoor Pets. Their debut EP ‘Spring Killing’ led to them performing at Glastonbury Festival, with their next single ‘Beehive’ gaining much support including Huw Stephens’ BBC Radio 1 Tip Of The Week.
