BARNSLEY rockers Bedroom High Club are making moves in the music industry and are set to perform in front of a sell-out crowd at The Leadmill tonight - but they’ve got their eyes set on playing in front of a packed-out Oakwell.
The band, who practice in Cundy Cross, all met whilst studying music at either Barnsley or Leeds College - and have been a hit with their fans ever since.
Barugh Green lad Blue Brownlie, Lewis Gelder from Wombwell, James Ardon from Pogmoor and Dan Partridge from Hoylandswaine - all 23 years old - said the best way to describe their music is a polarity between ‘melancholic dreamy verses and high energy chorus’.
The quartet will be playing in front of a sold-out crowd tonight at The Leadmill in Sheffield - but it’s not the first time they’ve took to the big stage.
“We sold the little room at The Leadmill out in less than a day just before Covid hit and that was a pretty big milestone for us so to up it this time and sell over three times the tickets is a pretty special feeling,” Blue said.
“I’ve got to mention though that the last time we played Tramlines to a full tent of 7,000 people was a pretty crazy experience.
“We’ve always imagined headlining Leadmill’s big room and it’s a dream come true.
“There’s still plenty of places we dream of playing and you’ve got to back yourself all the way to get there.
“Honestly it’s a massive dream come true for us and we can’t wait to get out there on Friday and soak it in.”
Being from Barnsley, they said that there would be nothing ‘more special’ than playing in front of a packed-out Oakwell.
“We love being from tarn and will wear it proud until we die,” Blue added.
“But it’s very hard to get heard unless you make the trip to Sheffield, Leeds or Manchester.
“It’s been both a massive blessing and a curse (coming from Barnsley) but our fans from tarn are the most loyal and have been with us from the first step - that’s definitely helped us push through.
“Now we’ve got fans all over and it’s really humbling to makes memories with all these people through music.
“It would be an absolute dream to walk out at a packed out Oakwell on a Saturday night to strum some guitars.
“I don’t think there would be anything much more special than that.”
