Kings Of Leon
Tennessean alt-rock group comprised of three brothers and a cousin. The Kings Of Leon take their titles very seriously, producing country-laden rock’n’roll with hints of blues and boogie-woogie. Brought up in the Deep South and having spent most of their childhood’s travelling, the Kings Of Leon (whose name comes from the brothers' father and grandfather) have a deep, drawling, rootsy sound and a suitable legacy to match.

Cheeky and charismatic four-piece from Scotland, pedalling angular, arty and knowing indie-pop. In 2004 they won the hearts of the music press and public alike - their best-selling, eponymously-named debut album scooping the much-coverted Mercury Music Prize. With choppy, catchy hooks, bohemian tongue-in-cheek lyrics and a fantastic live show, they're a breath of fresh air into the world of the beautiful indie people.

Jake Bugg's incredible ascent began in 2012 when his self-titled debut album entered the UK charts at number one (aged 18, making him the youngest British male artist ever to achieve this), going on to sell double platinum and get shortlisted for the UK Mercury Music Prize. And with three further UK Top 10 albums, it seems his fans have still got the bug for his music.

Echo & the Bunnymen
Eighties indie heroes whose majestic songwriting haunted a generation of bedsits and student pads. Re-formed in 1997, and still fronted by the inimitable Ian McCulloch, there's every cause to celebrate the Bunnymen's return. Their seminal albums 'Crocodiles', 'Heaven Up Here', 'Porcupine', 'Ocean Rain' & 'Echo & The Bunnymen' have all been a major influence for groups such as Coldplay, The Killers and The Flaming Lips whilst later albums 'Evergreen', 'What Are YouGoing To Do With Your Life?', ‘Siberia' & 'Meteorites' demonstrate what an amazing body of work the band have.

Known for their nervy, melodic indie rock, Britain's Circa Waves first gained buzz in the 2010's with hooky singles like 'Get Away' and 'Stuck in My Teeth'. Centered on lead singer/songwriter Kieran Shudall, the Liverpudlians earned favourable comparisons to the Strokes, Arctic Monkeys, and the Vaccines even before they hit the Top Ten with their debut, 2015's Young Chasers. Without shying away from their influences, the band has matured, while continuing their knack for crafting their own distinctively infectious, post-punk anthems.

Very little has stood in the way of young North Shields artist Sam Fender and his rapid ascent since 2018. Having toured the UK and Europe relentlessly, building himself a loyal, passionate army of fans, Sam writes honestly and candidly about subjects of social and generational significance, broadly drawn from his experiences growing up in the North East of England. Sam wraps his pertinent words in rousing, propulsive, arena-sized guitar anthems and delivers them directly with a cavernous, powerful vocal.
