The coming of spring brings with it new life and new ideas, and April’s edition of Endless Window at The Cumberland Arms follows suit by bringing you some very new and special performances indeed…


Elisabeth Elektra
Having received acclaim from publications like The Quietus and The Skinny for a distinct brand of dark electro pop, it’s long overdue that we bring Elisabeth Elektra (fka Zyna Hel) back for her first Newcastle show in three years. Startling and brilliant with a hugely charismatic live show, whether you’ve seen her before (appearing with acts like Errors and Minor Victories, or at 2015’s Endless Window showcase for NARC. Fest) or you’re new to her work, be prepared for something otherworldly, mighty and absolutely unmissable.

The Academy of Sun
Described as “highly fucking beautiful” by no less an authority than Julian Cope, Nick Hudson’s project The Academy of Sun is a shape-shifting, amorphous creature that takes in influences from post-punk, psychedelic rock and Incredible String Band inflected folk but conjures them into a brand new synthesis. Full of gnostic wisdom and surreal wonder, The Academy of Sun’s ambitious and theatrical work is a unique treat to be able to bring to the Endless Window masses.

Night Tongue
Originally from Australia and now based in L.A., Night Tongue use guitars, synth, cello, drum machines and some filthy bass lines to conjure up a transgressive and transcendent post-punk sound. Shocking and sublime in equal measure, the duo of Night Tongue evoke a landscape full of sex, death, horror and ecstasy. A very special band to be able to bring to you all.

+1 more tba, plus the Endless Window DJ. 7:30pm until late.
