Gig of the week: Chaouche Live at The Bunkhouse

What a treat we have for you this Friday at The Bunkhouse. One of the things we, as the Swansea Music Hub, wanted to do more of in 2019 was curate, support and put on gigs under the guise of ’Swansea Music Hub Presents…”. When we initially started chatting about the idea, one name at the top of our list of acts to book was Chaouche.

Spending her childhood in Swansea before moving to Bristol, Chaouche has finely crafted her sound to become an artist that we are very excited about. 

Her sound has been described as ‘heartbreaking and spine-tingling hymns’ by Wonderland Magazine and Chaouche herself has been described by Clash as a ‘songwriter of really strength and subtlety’. 

Her debut album ‘Safe’, released on Night Time Stories last June, demonstrates this through tracks such as We Will Love and So What. Beautiful, ethereal tracks drenched in luscious textures. Her follow up EP ‘Progression’ released last November further proves why Chaouche is getting such glowing reviews, with stand out tracks such as It Will Come in Time. 

Her wonderful piano playing matched with a very impressive looking live set up (often including electronics, programmed drums & samples) that will get any music fan excited, it’s safe to say that we cannot wait for Friday. 

Any if Chaouche wasn’t the only reason to bag yourself a ticket, we have 2 stellar support acts joining her on the night: local favourites Cities & Ophelia Xerri (formerly of Ananas)

This will undoubtably be a gig to remember. Don’t miss out.
