Fickle Friends are a ‘80s-inspired indie-pop five-piece from Brighton. Fronted by Natti, they describe themselves as, 'pop but with a slightly mental indie feel' and with those claustrophobic synths, scattered beats and a gigantic pop hook, she’s not wrong. They have been making waves since they unveiled their debut single SWIM, which gained nearly six million plays on Spotify. The band caught the attention of BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, Apple Music’s Zane Lowe and even captured the interest of Billboard Magazine in the US.

"They stormed out with their influences of The Killers, Roxy Music and The Strokes emblazoned across their chests with a New Romantic bow, and ever since they’ve continued to tease and please in equal measure – a band taking on the world" - Clash Magazine. Formed in 2011 by former Les Incompétents and Ox.Eagle.Lion.Man frontman Fred MacPherson, the melancholic widescreen pop of London five-piece Spector merge 80's synths with chugging guitars and attention-grabbing lyircs. "A Spector listener (I don’t really feel comfortable with the word fan) once told me our lyrics were good because every line could be an Instagram caption," Fred told Clash Magazine.

'Out of the quiet town of Matlock come Patawawa - an electronic trio, featuring Sam Wilmot, Rory Lovatt and Beth Garrett, that blends beats to pump blood, glittered guitar riffs and basslines that bite. The three-piece have crafted a sound that stays true to the neon roots of funk and disco, but dress it with a cheekyness that could only have come out of Derbyshire.'
