Deviant UK offer an arsenal of contemporary programming, soaring synthesisers, industrial percussion loops and cold vocals. More powerful than synth pop, more melodic than EBM, with Gary Numan-esque vocals. There is a vitality here, a lust for life, however dark that lust may be.

AlterRed's sound mixes electronic beats and sounds, ripping bass and avante-garde piano, then tops it off with strong and soaring vocals. With an array of recognizable influences from Depeche Mode, through David Bowie to Nine Inch Nail and then to The Dresden Dolls and IAMX, the end result is a unique melting-pot of sound and imagery.

Luxury Stranger

Luxury Stranger appearing at this event

A three piece band who are mainly influenced by the sounds of post-punk/cold wave and indie from 1978 - 1984 and the 90s American ‘Grunge’ and punk scenes. Imagine David Bowie and Iggy Pop’s Berlin years mixed with a dash of Bolan glam, the disparate sound of Joy Division and early Cure, the energy and darkness of 90s ‘Grunge’ with the melodies of Martin L Gore and power of The Chameleons and Echo & the Bunnymen - this is Luxury Stranger.

Babal appearing at this event

Babal reveal a dystopian, sideways view of life; their psych/art-rock approach calling up comparisons with Talking Heads and Patti Smith. The band have gathered great responses around the UK and Europe and have also played live soundtracks for Alternative Cinema presentations. Karen Langleys’ sharp lyrics and powerfully fluid vocals soar over groove-driven soundscapes and songs, meshed with blistering guitars. Alice the Worker, (mime), observes and behaves badly. Signed to Seattle’s Dgenerate Records, Babal’s latest EP, “Hanging In The Balance” rocks against the status quo. Darker and more fierce than ever, the new material marks a creative turning point for the band. Fabulous, charming, sardonic, soulful; and working class. Exceptional.
