Named as one of the BBC’s Sounds of 2018, Sam Fender is a 21-year-old Englishman not afraid to highlight the bigger issues. While he takes his lyrical cues and ethos from the likes of Billy Bragg and Paul Weller, his musical sound is closer to that of Foals or Local Natives. Wherever it lands: it’s on the money. His latest tune is Dead Boys, a searingly honest and emotive look at male suicide performed with unmistakable passion and fervour that led British DJ Annie Mac to declare it the hottest record in the world on release. With a debut album still on it’s way, we’ll be getting an early glimpse of this unique talent on the Falls stage - get there so you can say you were there.
