Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
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
Since first meeting as midwestern high-schoolers in 2009, Citizen have emerged as one of the most promising young bands in the alternative underground today. The band signed to Run For Cover Records in early 2012. Their fuzzy, guitar-driven rock songs bleed emotion. Citizen have called on the ghosts of Brand New and early Nirvana, creating a sound that is familiar but immediately all its own.
Citizen tour dates
Sheffield indie-pop guitar merchants The Crookes are signed to influential indie label Fierce Panda. Citing a range of diverse influences, from The Smiths and Orange Juice to 60's girl groups through to 50's rock and roll, the band embrace these sounds under their own genre known as 'New Pop'. The Crookes have gained themselves some famous fans, including fellow Sheffield icon Richard Hawley, and look set to build an impressive career with 2012 debut album 'Hold Fast'.
The Crookes tour dates
A five piece indie / pop band from Bristol whose influences range from Foals to The Cure.
Their music is infused with intelligent lyricism, mesmerising vocals and catchy guitar and percussion lines.
Coasts tour dates
The sound of Counting Coins refuses to stay still, switching from ska punk to gypsy to hip-hop and back again several times in the same song.
Counting Coins tour dates
Sheffield lad Chris Duckenfield began DJing in the late eighties and these days is playing at venues such as Herbal in London, Tribal Sessions in Manchester and Panorama in Berlin. He is one half of SWAG who have done remixes for Bjork, Ian Pooley and Blaze. His music is based on what he likes; house and electronica with a bit of funk thrown in - music to make his audiences dance.
Chris Duckenfield tour dates
One of the most exciting new producers to emerge from the UK, Duke has set the world alight with his EPs for Tiga's Turbo label and tracks such as the awesome 'Lean and Bounce’. With remixes for Missy Elliott already under his belt, there's a lot more to come from this immense new talent.
Duke Dumont tour dates
Bouncy and delightful indie from Manchester with some jaunty rock thrown in. Straddling the new wave line with a big bucket of songs and distinctive vocals, their songs have the ability to get stuck in your head and stay there.
Dutch Uncles tour dates
A five piece band from Essex who spent their first year together only performing in the close cofnines of a practice room in North London. One of the UK’s most promising young bands with guitar-driven indie-folk hooks reinforced by beautifully orchestrated horns, punctuated rhythms and the emphatic vocals of lead singer James Kellegher.
Eliza And The Bear tour dates
Comedy ukulele ensemble comprising Pete McKee (ukulele), Shaun Doane (vocals), Richard 'Bails' Bailey, Nick Banks (drums), Johnny Wood (double bass) Charley McKee, Klive Humberstone & Ginger Dave (ukuleles).
Everly Pregnant Brothers tour dates
Fossil Collective, a 2 piece from Leeds, consists of multi instrumentalists David Fendick and Jonny Hooker.
Fossil Collective tour dates
With a firm grasp of club dynamics combined with an acute pop sensibility, British electropop band, Fenech-Soler, have managed to create a big, thick sound on a strict budget, all magisterial, fizzing keyboards, buoyant bass and treated, topped off with disco cowbells, computer FX and attractive vocals that sound as though they could have come from anywhere but the middle of nowhere in the middle of the UK.
Fenech Soler tour dates
Sensual, provocatively percussive pop comes naturally to Friends. This quintet of essential and un-missable characters, led by the captivating Samantha Urbani, are unified by their single-minded musical independence and defiant trend resistance. These Friends play in traffic at a busy intersection of leftfield but party-hardy musical styles – ESG, Tom Tom Club, Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Warpaint – which they orchestrate effortlessly and winningly into a singular aesthetic.
