Four Sheffield musicians are gearing up their busiest year to date – kicking off with a new single out tomorrow.
Polkadodge are described as a ‘high-octane, energy-filled indie band with an international sound’.
The quartet – singer John Burton, guitarist Martin Greening, bassist Tom Fletcher and drummer Paul Robertson – will celebrate the track, Laughing in Spanish, with a single release launch party at Sheffield’s newest band night Propa Local tomorrow. A band spokesman said: “Laughing in Spanish is a song with a storyline based in Sheffield’s nightlife that’s about real-life Sheffield characters in real-life Sheffield venues.”
“The band originate from places like Retford, Doncaster, Manchester and Sheffield, where they settled down to live and start the Polkadodge story going.
“Since then they’ve gone from playing small stages in front of a handful of people to delivering knockout shows on much bigger bills alongside some bigger bands.”
The band already have a number of Sheffield shows lined up, including a headline gig at city centre venue Plug on Saturday, March 8, and an appearance at Mosborough Music Festival on Saturday, June 7, with more to be announced.
Propa Local takes place at Plug, Matilda Street in the city centre tomorrow, from 8.15pm, with performances from The North, Monoking and The Bone Lab.
