Featuring

Let's Eat Grandma

Let's Eat Grandma appearing at this event

Let’s Eat Grandma are Norwich duo and best friends since the age of four, Rosa and Jenny. They create imaginative and original music that crosses the worlds of experimental pop and progressive weirdness. Or in their own words, they create "psychedelic sludge pop".

Wand

Wand appearing at this event

When the Los Angeles group Wand formed in 2013, they played a wickedly spooky brand of psychedelic garage rock tinged with heavy metal. Over the course of three albums recorded in a couple years, the band's leader Cory Hanson wielded full control over their claustrophobic sound. The band's lineup changed along the way and Hanson loosened his grip on their sonic boundaries, allowing the new bandmembers more say in their newly classic rock- and modern pop-influenced approach. 2017's Plum was the first Wand album to reflect this change. The band is big on meaty guitar riffs, stunning pop melodies and a dose of trippy effects for good measure. They’re not the loudest band of the recent psych-rock batch, nor are they the weirdest, but their stunning, impeccably written songs are second to none.

Flamingods

Flamingods appearing at this event

A genre-defying tribal pop/experimental worldbeat outfit with roots in both England and Bahrain, Flamingods' dizzying blend of traditional African and Middle Eastern music, psych-folk, and prog falls somewhere in between the Avalanches, Konono Nº1, Animal Collective, and Goat. Formed in Bahrain in 2010 by Kamal Rasool, Sam Rowe, Charles Prest, Karthik Poduval, and Craig Doporto, the group issued a series of EPs before releasing its debut full-length album, Sun, in 2013 via English indie Art Is Hard. A change in UK visa laws resulted in Rasool being forced to move back to Bahrain shortly after graduating from university, so the quintet began working remotely, communicating their ideas via samples and snippets on the Internet. The results from those exchanges appeared on their 2014 sophomore outing, Hyperborea.

Pixx

Pixx appearing at this event

A thought-provoking singer/songwriter, Pixx questions conventions of all kinds with her shape-shifting music. From the folky beginnings of 2015's Fall In EP, she quickly moved to idiosyncratic electro-rock on later releases including 2019's Small Mercies. Born Hannah Rodgers, Pixx hails from Chipstead, a town just outside of South London. Growing up, her talent was encouraged, and after going to Catholic school for most of her studies, she attended the performing arts college The BRIT School for two years. Taking inspiration from Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, and Aphex Twin (and adopting her grandmother's nickname for her moniker) Pixx worked with co-producer Simon Byrt for her folktronica-tinged debut EP, Fall In, which arrived in August 2015. For her 2017 debut album, The Age of Anxiety (which took its name from W.H. Auden's final poem), she reunited with Byrt on a set of darker electro-pop songs inspired by the era's turbulent times.

Art School Girlfriend

Art School Girlfriend appearing at this event

'There's a lengthy creative thread running through Art School Girlfriend. Raised in Wrexham, North Wales, she then spent five years in London before eloping the calmer creative climes of Margate. Different projects, different guises have followed, before this young artist settled on her current moniker. A perfectionist, the material on upcoming EP 'Measures' - released on Paul Epworth's Wolf Tone label - has been in the works for some time, a laborious, exacting process. But it's all been worth it. 'Measures' is led out by new song 'Bending Back', an entrancing piece of electronic pop music that cuts a little deeper. The billowing, continually evolving production forms a soft bed for Art School Girlfriend's vocal to relax into, a striking, direct, yet playfully experimental performance.'
