Shockwaves NME Awards Shows 2011: The Bees
The iconic NME Awards Shows kick off in 2011 with a superlative line-up that will see them taking over London, setting the musical agenda for the year ahead.
Featuring Carl Barat, White Lies, Caribou, Crocodiles and recent NME cover stars Warpaint, amongst a host of the most exciting acts around, the shows run from February 1st and continue throughout the month, building up anticipation for the legendary NME Awards on February 23rd.
Spread across some of London's best music venues, the NME Awards Shows are set to make a huge impact on the capital's live scene, with a month-long mix of live music from the best influential, established and cutting edge acts around.
The Bees hail from the Isle Of Wight on the south coast of England. Ever since their debut Mercury Music Prize nominated album 'Sunshine Hit Me' in 2002, there has been a constant 'buzz' about the band! Famed for their retro 60's sound, dance craze anthems like 'Chicken Payback' or their cover of the Os Mutantes song 'A Minha Menina' rub shoulders with mellower acoustic and folk numbers like 'Silver Line', which could easily be mistaken for a long lost Simon & Garfunkel track. 2010's 4th album 'Every Step's A Yes' saw the band move further into a honey-tinged world of acoustic pop and psychedelia, revealing their most mature record to date.
