State of Undress set to perform Gok Wan song

State of Undress describe themselves as a "rocky, rootsy and fiddlesome band".

The quintet perform toe-tapping tunes, blending country rock with elements of Celtic songs in their music.

Their latest single I'm Gorgeous (Gok Wan Told Me So) has generated fresh attention for the band, with the TV presenter even giving the track a mention on his website.

The Dorset group have spent 2012 touring across the country, including London gigs and performances at Sidmouth FolkWeek as well as the Whitby Regatta.

They also performed tracks during the opening night of The Canterbury Festival in Kent, and Cornwall's Looe Festival.

Audiences can expect to see an energetic show, while their songs are piped as though-provoking, evocative and catchy.

Lead singer, Charlie Rose, said: "It’s great that Gok is so enthusiastic about the song and in the few days since it’s been on his website, we’ve already had lots of interest.

"It’s really quirky with an almost jazzy feel and although the lyrics are humorous and fun, it does have a serious message.

"We’ve only been playing it live for a few weeks but it’s been going down a storm wherever we’ve played it."
