Newsoundwales 5th Birthday: The Keys + Sion Russell Jones + The Vestals + Laurence Made Me Cry + Brothers

Hailing from the Welsh capital of Cardiff, contemporary psych-rockers Keys have a signature cosmic flavour. Drawing on a range of quality influences from Animal Collective, Captain Beefheart, Can, Spirit, The Black Keys, Frank Zappa, Panda Bear and Spiritualized, Keys adeptly blend together the new and the old, sitting alongside the likes of Super Furry Animals, The Coral, Malachai, Tame Impala and The Bees.
Having risen from the ashes of the much lauded Murry The Hump – once labelled by Alex James of Blur as ‘the best new band in Britain’, counting Damien Hirst and the late Joe Strummer as fans and notching up several John Peel sessions, Keys (who have recently dropped the 'The' from the front of their name!) are a band whose musical pedigree cannot be argued with.
Keys tour dates
Space folk from parallel dimensions, infused with quirky lyrics and catchy melodies. Sion is also one half of popular duo 'Ginge & Cello Boi'.
Sion Russell Jones tour dates
This South Wales act recall the melancholic thrall of The Wedding Present or Pains of Being Pure At Heart.
The Vestals tour dates
Laurence Made Me Cry is multi-instrumentalist Jo Whitby, a West Country girl at heart but now making roots in the Welsh capital Cardiff. There's an odd familiarity about the music of Laurence Made Me Cry. Her songs bring with them a sense of timelessness and warmth like meeting up with an old friend. Whitby's use of folk and rock roots combined with electronic instruments and organic sounds spawn a myriad of landscapes and pictures for the listeners' imagination to delve into.
