He’s only 19, which is part of the reason this edgy, word-playing folkie from Nottingham — who cuts his hair like a Gallagher brother and cuts his recordings like a punk-rocker — has gotten oodles of media attention in his native England. And that, in turn, helps explain why 89.3 the Current has been heavily playing his cigarette-endorsing single “Lightning Bolt” and other songs from his eponymous debut album, already platinum in U.K. sales. He easily could’ve sold out First Ave, but like a lot of hype-riding Brits of late (Alt-J, Savages), he’s sticking to a smaller club for his local debut. Local teen folk-rocker Lydia Hoglund of Bomba de Luz opens.
