Who? NGOD are Sam Augustine (vocals/guitar), Billy Fielding (keys), Alex Dutton-Taylor (drums), Lewis Dutton-Taylor (bass) and Joe Barnes (guitar).

What? Spiky, super-charged art-rock.

From where? Bradford.

What’s the story? The Yorks. based five-piece first emerged with their debut single Blue, back in May.

The track unleashed their bracing blend of clever guitar lines and rampant grooves, winning them instant love from Huw Stephens (BBC Radio 1), Steve Lamacq (BBC Radio 6 Music) and John Kennedy (Radio X).

It was later cherry-picked to appear on the soundtrack for EA’s FIFA 17 videogame.

This summer they performed rip-roaring sets at Y Not, Standon Calling, Underground Festival and Festival No. 6, and are currently on the first leg of a UK-wide tour (remaining dates below).

Creating the perfect blend of melodic hooks and technical musicianship, NGOD are a band whose talents are only matched by their consistency to impress.

Expect to hear a lot more from this Sony Music-backed quintet in the months to come, especially when they join fellow Yorkshire lads Kaiser Chiefs on their 2017 UK arena tour.

Sounds like? The Black Keys jamming with Royal Blood.

Predicted to? Become very big news when their debut album drops.

Must hear? New single Can You Hear Me?

Remaining October tour dates:
4th Sheffield, The Rocking Chair
5th Liverpool, Magnet
6th Glasgow, Nice ’N’ Sleazy
7th Newcastle, Jumpin’ Jacks
8th Leeds, Wardrobe
11th Bristol, The Louisiana
12th Brighton, The Prince Albert
13th Norwich, Open
14th Hackney, Wonderland
