"Excellent new indie-funk band purveying neat line in jangling disco with uptight quirky vocals" The Guardian "Stats make absurdist funk-pop perfect for fans of LCD Soundsystem and Talking Heads" NME
London dance band Stats return to Reading following their storming performance at Are You Listening? Festival back in April. The band will be performing songs of their debut album called 'Other People’s Lives', which was released to acclaim via Memphis Industries (Field Music/ Rozi Plain earlier in the year.
Their sound infuses 1970s art rock, funk, 80s synth grooves and cosmic disco-pop. The band have gained plaudits from Lauren Laverne at 6Music, Elton John at Beats1 and high praise from The Guardian, The Sunday Times, i-D, DIY Mag, and Q to name but a few.
Stats are a refreshing, modern band with hints of Talking Heads and LCD Soundsystem and will have your tapping your foot in no time!
Plus support on the night from Special Guests (TBA).
