Never miss another 'Former Utopia' show
Former Utopia‘s 10" 'colapsar' EP release party: Former Utopia + Plaided + Smallgang + Damnably DJs and Guests
East London post-punk trio George, Russ and Rama, Former Utopia deliver subtle melodies with occasionally heavy guitars. The way the songs creep up on you and develop is reminiscent of that great, often overlooked band Silkworm. 2013's 'Collapsar EP' saw airplay by BBC 6Music's Gideon Coe and Tom Ravenscroft, along with XFM's John Kennedy and Amazing Radio's Ruth Barnes.
Former Utopia tour dates
Sounding something like Johnny Cash fronting Sonic Youth or Smog's Bill Callahan holding his own in front of Dinosaur Jr. This power trio is fronted by half-Japanese siblings Simon and Toshi Kobayashi, joined by Matt Atkins on drums.
Equally passionate about rock's rich tapestry as they are 20th century literature, their songs nod to the influence of bands like Television, The Smiths, Pavement and Wilco whilst the lyrical themes of ambiguity and the strangeness of everyday life evoke the writing of Raymond Carver, Charles Burns or Richard Yates. New album 'San' released June 2 2014.
