|Pronto Mama kick off the first night of King Tut's Summer Nights 2012|
Since releasing their debut, home recorded EP back in May last year, Pronto Mama have been turning heads with their self proclaimed brand of polyrhythmic indie-rock and it's easy to see why. Almost a year on from their previous sold out King Tut's show, the boys will be using tonight to celebrate the launch of their latest EP, Lickety Split. Clever lyrics are regularly delivered in stunning harmony like a proud Scottish barbershop quartet to the backing of glorious horn sections in a manner so grand that you simply can't ignore it. These guys aren't just all about the elegant harmonies and instrumentation however, they also know how to write a good old fashioned guitar tune or two. Having already been live session guests on Radio 1's BBC Introducing and with support from the likes of Ally McCrae, Jim Gellatly, Vic Galloway and even comedian Robert Florence who directed their recent music video, it's been a year to remember for Pronto Mama and tonight will no doubt be a night to remember for both band and audience alike.
Support tonight comes in the form of trumpet laden pop from Stirling's Brazil Exists, Aberdonian indie disco kings The Little Kicks and anthemic four-piece Lost City Soul from Dundee. Doors open at 8pm and there are tickets available on the door, but get down early to catch the Detour boys, Ally & Weaver, who'll be spinning some tracks in the bar from 7pm.
