Turbowolf tour dates
'Mumford and Sons meets The Dead Weather' - Amy Smith, Event Organiser at Beachbreak Live Festival.
Brother & Bones tour dates
Hey Sholay are a five-piece group of musicians, filmmakers and artists from Sheffield and Leeds, who play a breed of psychedelic independent pop with a hint of the Northern Lights captured in a jam jar. They have been described as imperious masters of the contemporary anthemic chorus, with bright vibrant tunes and a beat guaranteed to make you tap your toes. Named as BBC6 and Drowned in Sound's 'Must See Band of 2012', they released their debut album '((o))' in Autumn last year too much critical acclaim.
Hey Sholay tour dates
Combining ethereal drone, brushed folk and quantised cacophony, Cambridge's Fuzzy Lights exist at a critical point of sounds, textures, emotions and musical styles. Formed as a duo in 2004, the live band has expanded to a five-piece, resulting in the formation of a wide scope of live soundscapes that envelop, whilst avoiding any aloof detachment from the spectator.
Fuzzy Lights tour dates
Formed in the summer of 2008, Model Village are a sophisticated indiepop outfit. The band’s mix of jangly guitars, boy-girl harmonies, upbeat melodies and downbeat lyrics sit somewhere in the niche between Belle & Sebastian and The Promise Ring. Influenced by Jim O’Rourke, Prefab Sprout, Yo La Tengo, Steely Dan, Red House Painters, and Camera Obscura, the group pulled all these threads together in their sound.
Model Village tour dates
Tom Copson is a singer songwriter with a 'life changing' voice for the listener. His songs exert honesty, passion and frailty upon his audience during all of his positively infectious performances, live or otherwise. Tom has supported many well known acts such as Jose Gonzalez, Scott Matthews, Jamie T, Paul Curreri and most recently Frank Hamilton.
Tom Copson tour dates
Recently moved from her hometown of New York City to the UK, singer-songwriter Annie Dressner has earned early raves for her 'passionate, conversational awkwardness'.
Annie Dressner tour dates
Cambridge’s premier indie folk psychedelic rockers. Alongside muscular bass lines and driving guitars, their sound is a boisterous, melody laden rock.
The bands origins stretch back to the womb, with twins Ian Jeffs (lead vocals) and Jay Jeffs (lead guitar), who combined their talents with Ollie Porsa (bass) and Bob Radford (drums) and started the band in 2010.
Twelve Clay Feet tour dates
The Scissors started in 2006 in Cambridge as a trio; adding organ and primitive analogue synths a year later to mould their sound into a mix of psychpop and post-punk that they continue to develop. The band deliver a unique sound encompassing carnival freakshow organ, primitive synths, and rock’n’roll guitar powered psych-punk-pop.
