The Pigeon Detectives
The Leeds-based Pigeon Detectives play an exciting blend of rock'n'roll born out of a love for classic rock music and the indie rock of the 1990s. 'Perfect fodder for indie fans who like to jump up and down as if it's 1995, this band's crunching guitar is simple but effective' says Camden Evening News, reflecting quite accurately the Pigeon Detectives' ethos - to play exciting music to packed out venues.

North London's Wolf Alice take their name from a book by Angela Carter. Originally a solo project for frontwoman Ellie Rowsell, it soon expanded into a full four-piece band with Joff Oddie (guitar, vocals), Theo Ellis (bass) and Joel Amey (drums, vocals). Eloquently described by Clash Magazine as ‘the lovechild of folk and grunge’, Wolf Alice's off-kilter sound has seen folky vocals combine with the alt-rock of 90's bands like Hole and Elastica.
