THE IMAGINARY HAT: Behold the musical stylings of The Imaginary Hat; a blend of rock, punk and 1920s jazz, resulting in a band that’s as distorted as it is danceable. Through characteristically dark and absurd lyricism (think Cole Porter meets John Cooper Clarke), their songs explore the pitfalls and pleasures of 21st Century life. Since forming in 2014, the band has rapidly gained a reputation for energetic live performances full of onstage antics and spontaneity. 2018 saw a new and expanded line-up, with a powerful brass section of trombone, saxophone and clarinet. Their sophomore EP, ‘Age of Anxiety’, was released on Friday 13th July 2018.
