Xardiff Mind Fest: We're No Heroes + The Adelines + Howl + Love Bazaar + Quiet Marauder + Maddie Jones + My Name Is Ian + Third Party + Junior Bill & The Scallies + DJ Matt Jarrett
We're No Heroes are a three-piece band from Cardiff. They have been likened to 80s bands such as Spandau Ballet and The Whitest Boy Alive amongst others. During the past year the band have been showcased on BBC Radio 1 with Jen Long, BBC 6 Music with Tom Robinson & BBC Radio Wales with Bethan Elfyn & Adam Walton. The band then gained further attention from TopShop, who included all of their current tracks on their playlist, reaching in excess of 300 stores across the UK for over 3 months.

The Adelines are a guitar-driven Welsh quartet comprising Jennie Morris on vocals and guitar, Anton Dodwell on guitar, Eddie Russell on bass and Ray Thomas on drums.
Formed in 2011 and named after their next door neighbour's cat, they cut their teeth playing house parties in Swansea and pricked ears with their tom-boyish vocals, jangly reverb-guitars and warped pop sensibilities.
Their sunshine-drenched songs paint an intimate portrait of coming of age and late night dalliances, combining pop choruses with resonant wall-of-sound guitars and bittersweet lyrics that walk a tightrope between naiveté and spirited frankness. Favourable comparisons have been made variously to Juliana Hatfield, The Vaccines and Throwing Muses - though the band state that they draw their influences "from life".

Quiet Maurader's alt folk stylings are both amusing and disturbing. This is one for fans of using kitchen utensils as musical instruments.
Quiet Marauder tour dates
Maddie Jones, a singer and songwriter from South Wales, has made her mark on the live music scenes in Cardiff, Bristol and London. Influenced by everything - from folk to funk, to life itself - her music is eclectic and contrasting.

My Name Is Ian creates beautiful, heartbreaking anti-garage awesomeness. Specific, prolific and terrific, he has said he is influenced by “the animals of farthing wood” and losing the love of his life.
