A indie music favourite will be playing a one-off Christmas show in Bristol next month.

Saint Etienne were formed in 1990 and became heavily associated with the UK’s indie dance scene during the decade, beginning with their debut album Foxbase Alpha.

Their work has been described as ‘uniting 1990s culture with 1960s pop’. Following the release of their newest album Home Countries, the band will be back on the road once again for their Christmas tour.

The band covers a range of topics include desire and despair, sadness and melancholy in this one-off Christmas show.

Saint Etienne will be at the SWX, in Nelson Street, at 6.30pm on December 8.

Tickets, priced £27.50, are available from or 01179 450325.
