Working Men's Club at The Ritz, Manchester, 12 November 2021, from £17.75 - Book now

Not long after opening for the legendary New Order at Heaton Park, Working Men’s Club perform at The Ritz this Friday 12 November – their biggest headline show in Manchester to date.

The Yorkshire-born synthpop band released their self-titled debut album last year, amidst the tedium of endless lockdowns – and it couldn’t have been a more suitable time for a blast of fresh and electric energy. By blending jagged guitar riffs with acid techno synth lines, the band stand at the forefront of modern rock music, while referencing their predecessors with every note. After all, if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.

Working Men’s Club came straight out of the gate with acid pop banger ‘Valleys’ showing exactly what they’re all about. Other stand-out tracks, such as ‘Teeth’, would suit the dance-heavy Warehouse Project just as much as the indie feel of Reading festival. Their sound has something for everyone.

The whole album slides effortlessly between genres, and received critical acclaim, thanks to songs like ‘Tomorrow’ combining textbook pop hooks and dancefloor breakdowns.

‘Cook a Coffee’ hits especially hard, employing punchy kicks and tight hi-hats, similar to The Strokes’ recent material produced by Rick Rubin. Singer Sydney Minsky-Sargeant delivers the chorus like a peak-era David Byrne, elevating Working Men’s Club from promising indie band to something truly special that speaks to all ages.

Only a handful of tickets are remaining for their Manchester show this Friday, so act quickly or miss out on this ensemble’s biggest headline tour to date.
