It's been a stacked 12 months for Delta Sleep. The band released the excellent 'Ghost City' (Big Scary Monsters) in August 2018, which saw them land at #1 on the Bandcamp Rock Chart and clock 5million Spotify streams by the close of the year. Since the records' release, they have tirelessly put in tens of thousands of miles on the road, racking up sold out shows on 3 continents; three US & Canada tours, hitting Europe on Mineral's 20th anniversary tour, appearances at the likes of ArcTanGent and Truck Festivals, and an upcoming tour of Asia, taking in Japan, Philippines, Thailand and Singapore. And then there was also the release of their 'Ghost City Rarities' EP (ft. Tricot) to boot. Where they would be forgiven for stopping for a breather, they have instead just announced a mini world tour hitting Japan, Thailand, Philippines, Singapore, UK, Ireland, USA, Mexico and announced a new EP Younger Years! Get set for another year of Delta Sleep.

Formed in Leeds in 2015, KOYO have fast become a major factor in the city’s burgeoning music scene. Tagged with the prog rock label, they are in fact proficient, reflective and utterly self-effacing, a far cry from the cape-wearing and wizard-hatted indulgence of your traditional progressive musicians. True, some of their songs are longer and they are well schooled in music – literally. But KOYO wear their versatility and charm very lightly indeed. Formed by Huw Edwards and Jacob Price, KOYO are an accomplished five-piece. Blending influences as wide as Ozric Tentacles and The Velvet Underground, My Bloody Valentine and Kurt Vile, they give the impression of being able to play just about anything. KOYO combine beautiful melancholy vocals with intricate riffs and the poetry of Nick Drake. Sampling and synthesisers provide astral soundscapes, grounded by a gifted rhythm section. They are at once delicate and robust. A powerful live force, KOYO create sonic spectacles through soaring layers of sound. They fill and transform space, create darkness and colour. Songs become extended improvisations, spontaneous expressions of emotion. KOYO are an unmatchable dynamic talent.
