Belle & Sebastian
Glasgow indie darlings Belle and Sebastian’s star has steadily risen from humble yet precocious beginnings. Their cult debut album ‘Tigermilk’ was devised as a school project in 1996, but it was follow up ‘If You’re Feeling Sinister’ that brought them to mainstream attention with their heartfelt and quirky lyrics appealing to lonely teenagers and music completists alike. Belle and Sebastian are an exciting and accomplished live act, and with a huge back catalogue of songs including hits ‘The Boy with the Arab Strap’ and ‘I’m A Cuckoo’ that sit comfortably next to obscure b-sides and special releases.

North London female indie pop three-piece Poppy Hankin (vocals, guitar), Iris McConnell (drums) and Sophie Moss (bass) are Girl Ray, a band influenced by the old C86 Indie scene along with the more contemporary likes of Cate Le Bon. Formed when all three members were just the age of 16, they have created a sound mature beyond their years, with echoes of Nico meets The Beach Boys. "The influence of shambly 1990s indie such as Pavement and, most obviously, Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci, is clear on their winningly gauche debut, but it stands in a longer line of British faux-naifs stretching back through Postcard Records and the Raincoats" - 4/5, The Guardian

Incredible East London Ska and reggae band. They earned their formidable reputation live and the first album has sold more than 7500 copies with zero PR. Their 2nd album in 2012, 'Part & Parcel', mixed Jamaican styles with pop hooks, grimey raps, filthy basslines and a punk rock work ethic to create a sound familiar to newcomers, yet unique below the surface.
