The Hundredth Anniversary

Brighton three-piece The Hundredth Anniversary were formed in January 2012. Their atmospheric and precisely structured songs marry bright guitar lines, rigorous percussion and clear, honest vocals.

The band have played shows across the UK, supporting and sharing bills with Lower Dens, Waxahatchee, Wolf Alice, Fear of Men, Esben and The Witch and many more. They have been twice named in NME’s ‘Ones to Watch’, and have recorded a Daytrotter session which made it into their end of year ‘Best of’ list.

The Hundredth Anniversary have spent the last year writing and recording their debut album.


"chiming guitar, driving bass and perfect melodies that create a spectral, swirling atmosphere as the Brighton band create astonishing soundscapes that are totally beyond their youthfulness" - Louderthanwar

"Their urgent brand of classic post-punk meets psychedelic art-pop ... respects their impeccable influences but shies away from imitation" - Isolation Records

"it is amazing to think that they only have an average age of 17 and yet would show up bands twice as old, they're overflowing with promise and potential" - Brightonsfinest
