We caught up with Gertrude recently at Tipsy in Dalston, London. They played a fast-paced set featuring seductive harmonies fused with frenetic guitar. Tracks from their new album included the hook-laden Perfect O, dripping with sweet and sour attitude, and the lilting, almost funky, clarinet-led Nose Ring Piggy. They are ace multi-instrumentalists and their brand of playful punk spanned everything from dance to protest tunes.
Iona talked us through their gear on the night, starting with Ayesha’s set up.
