Climbing Boys are a four-piece band based in East London. So far, so standard. But Tom Salo, Gavin Bowers, Emma Quick and Luke Shuttleworth who only formed in late 2012 and played their first show at Barfly in November last year and they have just released their debut EP Take the Floor. Post-punk/new wave, the early 80s have been reborn in this London group, despite them barely being born in the 80s themselves. They combine a profound sort of songwriting with a sound reminiscent of early Echo & the Bunnymen, Siouxsie & the Banshees and David Bowie. Combining gloomy pop and hazy melodies, it’s moodily bewitching.
