Formed in 2004, minimalist eighties-influenced punk-dance band New Young Pony Club have gone from strength to strength. Influenced by the likes of Iggy Pop and Blondie they make synth based pop topped with sexy scrawling vocals from lead singer Tahita. ‘…like Debbie Harry singing over a Frankie Knuckles tune played by Joy Division.’ - AngryApe
NYPC (Formerly New Young Pony Club) tour dates
Shimmering pyschedelic rock featuring some sexy husky voice action from the man mountain that is David Okumu (formerly of Jade Fox). The Invisible were nominated for the Mercury Prize and selected as the critics choice for iTunes album of the year following the release of their eponymous 2009 debut.
The Invisible tour dates
London based 2:54 are made up of sisters Colette and Hannah Thurlow, joined by Joel Porter on bass and Alex Robins on drums.
Influenced by punk bands, the name 2:54 was taken from "the bit where it gets good" in a Melvins song.
2:54 tour dates
Euphoric and atmospheric rock from indie-types Sky Larkin. Having toured with The Gossip, Broken Social Scene and iForward Russia!, this Leeds based trio are most certainly ones to watch. '...a glorious mixture of stupendous pop melodies, pleasing-to-the-eye personnel and a host of quirks to boot.' - Drowned In Sound.
Sky Larkin tour dates
London blissed out indie-rock four-piece signed to Wichita Recordings. Their sound harks back to Creation bands. Think Swervedriver, My Bloody Valentine’s two classic albums, the pop-tinged psychedelia of The Boo Radleys and Teenage Fanclub, with hints of Sugar and Dinosaur Jr thrown into the mix. An electrifying blend of raucous guitars and breathy vocals, honey-dripped with ennui and emotion.
Cheatahs tour dates
An alternative pop duo based in London.
Childhood friends Marcus Pepperell and John Hamson Jr., who were previously in alt indie bands Antihero and Pull Tiger Tail, regrouped in 2011 after their previous band fell apart due to unsolvable issues with their management and label.
After Pull Tiger Tail's split, Hamson went on to play drums with Noah and the Whale before playing bass and percussion with Friendly Fires on their Pala world tour. During this time the two began writing music that would become the first Thumpers songs via email.
THUMPERS tour dates
Bella Union signings PINS are a girl four-piece from Manchester playing fuzzy indie guitars. Fans of Crystal Stilts, Vivian Girls and Best Coast should investigate.
PINS tour dates
Expect traces of Jonathan Fire Eater, Elvis Costello and Velvet Underground and with key support shows with Reverend and The Makers, Richard Hawley and Cherry Ghost, followed by back to back tours with The Walkmen, Cold War Kids, Paul Weller's UK Arena Tour and secured airplay on Radio 1 and Jonathan Ross' Radio 2 show, its safe to say we can be expecting huge things to come from this Sheffield band dressed in black.
The Hosts tour dates
A four piece Americana band from Sheffield whose influences include Nick Cave, Gram Parsons and Arthur Miller.
The Payroll Union tour dates
Waylayers are Harry Lee (vocals, synths), Dave Norman (bass), and Joe Andrews (guitars). They're based in East London and create music that has been described as 'atmospheric pop'. Fusing electronica and guitars to create their characteristic sound.
Waylayers tour dates
Inspiring comparisons to The Knife, Sleigh Bells, Depeche Mode, Fever Ray, Massive Attack, Portishead and NIN, this London girl/boy electro-gloom-pop duo released their latest EP “Fortress” in April 2013, widely impressing music critics. Having already gained major praise from the likes of John Kennedy (XFM), Tom Robinson (BBC Radio 6 Music) and Amazing Radio, Helen and Chris Hamilton are well on their way to smashing the industry with their heavily stylized sounds and look.
Death Rattle tour dates
