Last night I attended the latest gig of Brighton rock band Ahsoka. They played at The Brunswick alongside Giant Sky and Last Seen Alive. In this post I have showcased some of my favourite shots I captured during their set.
Keeping an all too common genre of rock exciting is not an easy thing to do however as a three-piece with no bassist, Ahsoka are doing just that. The absence of a bass player is not something that is easily noticed as with the power of pedals they are able to create a sound that rumbles through your very soul.
With gut-punching vocal, monstrous drums and brutal guitar, Ahsoka create music with an intensity that is pure electric.
Back in 2020 I reviewed my favourite track from the Brighton trio; Creature of The Deep. Check out the review here.
More on the track:
The storytelling in Creature of the Deep is an insidious tale. The story tells the tale of a sea creature living in the depths of the Brighton sea who can sense the tormenting and harassing desires of despicable men. When these men get close the huntress-like creature preys on them and marks them up as her next meal. When the day finally comes that the world is rid of such heinous harassment and her appetite has been whet, the creature will return to the depths. Would these vile predators still exist if there was an unrelenting huntress, a creature of the deep on the loose looking for them? Do not feed her. Fear her.
The band have multiple gigs booked for the next few months. Keep up to date with them on their socials and check them out on Spotify.
