Ola Tortuga Presents: Verse Metrics + Catalan!


Ola Tortuga Presents: 

Verse Metrics are a Glasgow based 4 piece with a knack for writing twisty, turny emo/post rock songs. Combining a sound closely related to post-punk revivalists like Interpol and I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness with a mathy, angular soundscape akin to bands such as Polvo, Verse Metrics are anything but your typical indie-rock band. 

New single 'The Nightmares Leave Us All Inoperational' was produced by Tom Peters (The Fall, Alpha Male Tea Party, Hyena Kill) and follows the success of their wonderful 2016 EP We’ll Be Listening and Remembering Until We’re Old and Unsteady (Lonely Voyage Records).

"Verse Metrics not only create powerful and potent music, they carry a deeper message within their songs." Punktastic 

Support from: 

CATALAN! create world influenced music with an experimental and eclectic edge. Having spent the last seven years exploring the open road, with various bands and companions including ‘Axis Of’ and ‘And So I Watch You From Afar’, Ewen Friers dedicated the early part of 2017 to condensing his experiences and interests into a thought provoking new musical project which resulted in last year’s debut release ‘Oka’.

“a spiky, melodic punch – with shimmering guitars, a scuzzy bassline and some brilliant post-punk percussion” – Keep It Fast
