Based in Montreal, Ought are a thrilling and adventurous quartet, delivering an earnest and exuberant post-punk: dexterous and exacting while bursting with propulsive and fluid energy, as indebted to Cap'n Jazz as to Talking Heads. The band shifts adeptly from sharp angles and stuttering counterpoint to softer edges and chiming flow, the instrumental interplay consistently whipsmart, supple and deceptively simple. Guitarist and vocalist Tim Darcy's declarative, observational style ranges from stately, composed oratory to ragged, impassioned yelp, by turns wide-eyed and worried, but never submitting to cool irony or emotional detachment.
One of the hottest bands in London, shame is second on the bill.
Grace Vonderkuhn, just signed to Egghunt records, opens the show with a homegrown set.
