Spontaneous turns take four piece The Assist to new grounds. From echoed glitches to snappy indie riffs, add a drop of youth and you’ve got the perfect recipe.
Latest release, Things Get Good, tackles all of the above. Opening with a vigorous melody, the pace fluctuates as if between morning and night. Infectious hooks sample short indie-pop numbers against a stint of balladry, three in one. It’s sugary sweet, addictive and undoubtedly the best from The Assist.
Just announced for the brand new Jack Rocks This Feeling stage at Leeds festival, Mikey, Ryan, Jak and Ben are preparing for a monumental set.
“We are beyond buzzing to be playing this year’s Leeds festival. The gig itself I’m sure will be special, but won’t come close to the events that will follow under the heavy influence of complimentary Jack Daniels!” says front man, Mikey Stanton.
