Arctic Monkeys’ Matt Helders reveals his new band tip for 2012, Wet Nuns

Wet Nuns

Matt Helders: There’s a couple of new bands from Sheffield at the moment who are kind of exciting, like Wet Nuns and another band called Drenge. Wet Nuns are this two-piece who’ve been around for a bit here, they play this kinda heavy-blues which I like.

They’re really entertaining to watch live, loads of fun. I went to see them last week actually, when they launched their single at the Bungalows & Bears pub here and it was pretty heaving. Mind you, when they played at Tramlines Festival it was rammed too, people were crowdsurfing and everything. And then I also saw them at a mates birthday party – they were brilliant there. They’ll play anywhere, basically. They’re dead exciting.
