Across the Pond: 5 of the best new U.K. Bands you need to hear!

Click & Dagger has always been a place of Discovery (or at least that’s what we intended), especially when it comes to the latest and greatest U.K. bands making their way Across the Pond. Some of these might not be new to those of you paying attention (i.e. Twin Atlantic), but almost all of them made huge strides at SXSW this year. A little bit of Yorkshire, some Wales, Liverpool, and Scotland;  we’ve done all the work so you don’t have to. All you need to do is click & listen:

1. O.Children – [Ruins]

2. Middleman – [Good to be Back]

3. Polley Mackey & The Pleasure Principle – [Silent Media]

4. Ten Bears – [Braces]

5. Twin Atlantic – [Lightspeed]

And we’ll even throw in a bonus band from Norway that turned our heads:

6. The Megaphponic Thrift – [Talks Like a Weed King]
