English indie rock band The Subways will be performing live at Sala Bikini this month, as part of their new album tour. The trio have been part of the indie scene since 2005, when they released their unforgettable debut album, Young For Eternity. Originally from Welwyn Garden City in Hertfordshire, the band includes singer and guitarist Billy Lunn, his brother Josh Morgan on drums, and bassist Charlotte Cooper, who also does vocals. With ripped jeans and bleached hair, the three are known for their distinct, grungy style as well as their energetic, punk-inspired sound, and they named themselves after the local subway underpass where they used to hang out.
Their visit to Barcelona coincides with the release of their self-titled fourth album, for which they have done absolutely everything themselves, including production, mixing, and equipment—it’s 100 percent The Subways, according to Lunn, who described the process as a “voyage of self-discovery”.
Random fact: The Subways made a guest appearance on American teen drama series The O.C. back in 2005, performing their early hits, ‘Rock and Roll Queen’ and ‘Oh Yeah’.
