Acres

Acres appearing at this event

Acres are five friends from the South of England that play music for the texture, tone, feel, ambience and emotion that it generates. In their first year as a band they've been coined a number of different genres, but if one needs to be given they'd be best described as ambient post-hardcore. Their primary focus is a mix between textural ambience, soaring melodies, and raw and powerful emotion.
