Fatherson are a four piece alternative / indie band based in Glasgow and formed in Kilmarnock. They have been making waves in the Scottish music scene following a string of supports with bands such as Frightened Rabbit, Panic! at the Disco, Feeder, Twin Atlantic and Idlewild.
Fatherson tour dates
Tom Krell leads a double life. During the day, he's a research fellow currently translating a book of post-Kantian philosophy in Cologne, Germany. But after work he's making narcotized, below-fi R&B as How to Dress Well.
How To Dress Well tour dates
Hudson Taylor are brothers from the southern suburbs of Dublin who write beguiling folk songs. Comprising brothers Harry and Alfie, Hudson Taylor take their inspiration from both folk and pop, with a vivacity all their own.
Hudson Taylor tour dates
Gap toothed Montreal rocker, who describes his music as "Jizz Jazz"! His slacker-rock sound takes in influences from Jonathan Richaman and Nilsson to Pavement and The Strokes. Live, DeMarco is famed for his wild shows, regularly known to perform half-naked and interacting with the crowd. "Fans have come to expect messy, raucous live shows. Mention must be made of the drumsticks-up-the-bum incident" - The Guardian.
Mac DeMarco tour dates
British neo-psychedelic band Temples make trippy dance-and rock-oriented pop that combines the experimental sound of bands like The Flaming Lips with the classic song craftsmanship of The Beatles.
Formed in Kettering, Temples centers around the talents of songwriting duo vocalist/guitarist James Bagshaw and vocalist/bassist Thomas Warmsley.
Temples tour dates
Alt-rock quartet from Glasgow of a Sonic Youth and Fugazi bent. Continuously tinkering with the rules of modern rock, they cross paths with post-punk, post-rock and shoegaze influences whilst retaining the melodic surges and choruses that have so far served them well.
"I’ve seen them live. They are outstanding, really tight, really in your face. If you like Jesus Lizard, Shellac, maybe even At The Drive-In then you'll love these guys" - Vic Galloway, Radio 1
United Fruit tour dates
With thunderous live performances matching the power of fellow Scots Mogwai and a pop sensibility comparable to that of Foals or Bloc Party, it was no surprise that We Were Promised Jetpacks landed the 'Best Live Act' award at the Scottish Alternative Music Awards back in 2012. The band cites Frightened Rabbit and The Twilight Sad as influences, alongside Biffy Clyro's early material.
We Were Promised Jetpacks tour dates
Widowspeak formed in a Brooklyn apartment in 2010. Singer/Songwriter Molly Hamilton and drummer Michael Stakiak grew up in the North-Western state of Washington, uprooted to New York in their late teens and slowly developed the band, picking up guitarist, Robert Earl Thomas along the way. With the arrival of Robert's rust-belt guitar sound, the bands skeleton shape began to take shape. Writing became a collaborative effort, and Widowspeak racked up an arsenal of songs. The trio offer up heartache and reeling guitars in equal measure. An eerie ambience, at times channeling 1950's jukebox pop, at others, 1960’s psychedelia or even Ennio Morricone spaghetto-style soundtracks, while garnering comparisons to slow-moving 1990's acts such as Mazzy Star or Cat Power,
Widowspeak tour dates
The first British band ever to be signed up by the mega-impressive Jagjaguwar label, Wolf People are an alchemistic compendium of English classic rock that has been doused in wine. Full of hissing guitars, distorted blues harmonica, acid rock, mystical flutes and crackling tape, often based on updated versions of classic blues structures and half-remembered English folk songs. Reminiscent of Faust, early Mothers of Invention and Jethro Tull.
'Old-school prog inflected with enough vintage folk and rock to keep it cool' - Grazia.
