Brooklyn newcomers Public Access T.V arrived at Sebright Arms for their first (and only) headline show in the UK pretty well prepped after just coming off run of shows supporting indie-darlings Circa Waves.
Packing Sebright out with only a couple of singles under their belt is no mean feat, and the US band flew through their short-sharp set with plenty of endearing qualities. The ultra-catchy ‘Middlechild’, and their debut demo ‘Monaco’ were the stand outs… (And that’s pretty much all they have in the public domain ATM) BUT still, their set was also littered with flashes of brilliance away from them; including their brand new single ‘In The Mirror’ which comes with all the hallmarks of fellow NYC residents The Strokes in their prime.
If tonight proved one thing, it was they’ve got the songs and with that one bright future ahead to look forward too.
