Working Men’s Club - named after the wood panelled, community-run venues 18- year-old band leader and singer Sydney Minsky-Sargeant used to sneak into under age. It was at home in the town of Todmorden in West Yorkshire, feeling hemmed in, that Syd first began assembling these 10 songs. “There’s not much going on, not much stuff to do as a teenager” he says. “It’s quite isolated. And it can get quite depressing being in a town where in the winter it gets light at nine in the morning and dark at four.”

Their eponymous collection of songs is equal parts Calder Valley restlessness and raw Sheffield steel, as it was across the Pennines that Working Men's Club’s hard edged electronic sound was forged under the watchful ear of producer Ross Orton (The Fall, M.I.A., Arctic Monkeys).

Guitars locking horns with floorfilling beats, synths masquerading as drums and Minsky-Sargeant’s scratchy, electrifying bedroom demos brought to their full potential by Orton’s blade-sharp yet sensitive production.

“2020 is going to be theirs” - Lauren Laverne, 6 Music

“Innovative, entertaining and full of wondrous surprises and hair-raising risks, there’s no-one quite like Working Men’s Club - even on a livestream.” - NME

“With nods to the Fall and Soft Cell, the urgent Yorkshire indie band like confusing people, and badmouthing Andrew Neil.” - The Guardian / The Observer (One To Watch)

“Exuberant rock ‘n’ roll. This lot blend new wave, post-punk, motorick rhythms and hard-edged hard-edged beats. New single ‘Teeth’ is an antsy delight.” - Music Week (Breaking Act)

“High-voltage new wave, combined with a healthy dose of audience-bating.” - Q Magazine (Shortlisted for the Q Awards)

“Signed to Heavenly and ‘going places,’ Working Men’s Club might sound like a dodgy boozer your Dad tries to get you to come to, but actually is the name of one of the hottest, most exciting bands on ‘the block.’ Go figure. If you need convincing, check out ‘Teeth.’ It's a banger.” - Dork Magazine
