Scouting For Girls
October 8 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Friends since they were five, indie-pop three-piece Scouting For Girls (Roy Stride, Pete Ellard, and Greg Churchouse) have never changed to chase success. Success came to them; their 2007 self-titled debut went on to become triple platinum and birthed the generation-bridging anthems of ‘She’s So Lovely’, ‘Elvis Ain’t Dead’ and ‘Heartbeat’. And they have never looked back. Scouting For Girls went on to release ‘Everybody Wants To Be On TV’ (2010), ‘The Light Between Us’ (2012), ‘Still Thinking About You’ (2015), The Trouble With Boys (2019) plus the mega number 1 hit single ‘This Ain’t A Love Song’. They’ve picked up nominations for four Brits, an Ivor Novello and played everywhere from a sold out Wembley Arena to countless festival stages.
Bucking the trend, SFG is a band that continues to grow. Their 2019 tour was their biggest yet, and a stellar 2020 had been lined up. However, 2020 had other ideas… And like many of us, Scouting For Girls initially responded by surrounding themselves with sources of comfort and escapism, things from what felt like a simpler time. Going back to the music and culture of their childhoods in the 1980s, the band regrouped during what should have been a summer of festivals, and the result is a joyous album of 80s covers alongside some incredible new tracks, and an optimism that 2021 can be everything that 2020 was not.
