Unless you’ve spent the past year or two listening exclusively to Capitol FM, the chances are that you’ll have stumbled across Bethany Consentino’s jangly pop tunes in the past 12 months. Even then, there’s still a chance you’ll have happened across them – irresistible and heartfelt, built around a core track that simply demands you sway along. After cutting her teeth with noise-rock outfit Pocahaunter, Bethany worked her way back to the sundrenched west coast and starting making music that reflects that kind of care-free nature we’ve all come to expect from the region, dragging her cat along for the ride in the meantime.
Having turned into the alt equivalent of a mega star (with hipster runoff pretty much turning itself into a shrine to her and boyfriend Nathan’s lives), Consentino and her band are coming back to Manchester to play Academy 2 with support from Spectrals. Now Wave are the ones putting it on, and they’re giving away a pair of tickets for the show on April 26th. To have your chance to win, all you have to do is answer this question:
What is the name of Bethany Consentino’s cat?
