Considered by some to be a female Nick Cave, scored for an imaginary Hitchock soundtrack, Anna Calvi's blend of dark atmospheric romantic pop saw her nominated for the Mercury Music Prize with her 2011 eponymous debut for the Domino label. Meanwhile her intense mesmerising live performances showcase her fiercely provocative and mastery electric guitar work, haunting vocals and hypnotic stage presence with striking torch songs. 2013 saw the release of her follow-up album 'One Breath', described by The Independent as “an LP that rumbles with lusty insistence, swoons with bliss, luxuriates in cinematic style and nudges Calvi’s emotive voice to fresh operatic heights.”

Connan Mockasin

Connan Mockasin appearing at this event

Connan Mockasin makes psychedelic blues and funked up party music for a new generation. Like David Lynch’s wilfully surrealist take on American suburbia, or Richard Prince’s paintings investigating modern cultural tropes, the New Zealand born, current London resident Mockasin makes beautiful, off-kilter music which subverts as it compels, challenges as it mesmerists, startles as it seduces, even drawing fans as diverse as Johnny Marr and Radiohead to Ed Banger chief and ex Daft Punk manager Pedro Winter into its wide-eyed, childlike exploration into the final frontiers of pop music.

The Nude Party

The Nude Party appearing at this event

The Nude Party congealed as one unit in the southern mountain town of Boone, North Carolina, in 2013 and gained its namesake very literally. Bonded by isolation, house party debauchery, a religion based on pushing the limits of bad taste, and a precocious predisposition towards the Kinks, the Animals, and the Velvets, they have burgeoned into a rock ’n’ roll act to be reckoned with.

Willie J Healey

Willie J Healey appearing at this event

Willie J Healey operates within his own lane. This is a musician who can write about any topic that grabs his attention: from wry observationals and the innocence of young love, through to gothic visitations from the devil and alien abductions. He’s unconstrained by genre, moving at will between scrappy garage-rock, evocative Americana and sumptuous psychedelia. And it's all his own work, the product of obsessively writing song after song in his studio/garage/bedroom.
