Three piece Liverpool band Bird is the creation of Adele Emmas (singer, songwriter) Sian Williams (guitar, harmonies) and Alexis Samata (drums) Together they create dark, haunting, atmospheric music which will entice you in to their magical, other worldly universe. With beautiful, siren-esque vocals, tribal, hypnotic drum beats and spellbinding guitar work, Bird are refreshingly unlike anything that's currently on the music scene.
"Like a physical manifestation of a tale spun by one of the Bronte sisters, Bird make with ghostly, ethereal tunes that lean heavily on more classical mores. Listening and looking at the female trio will bring easy comparisons to Kate Bush, but dig a little deeper and shades of Leonard Cohen, The Cocteau Twins and Fleetwood Mac make themselves apparent. The Epstein Theatre is the perfect setting for their theatrical and immersive sound" GET INTO THIS
Brought up in basements decorated like Egypt on Mars, Seawitches are playing by their own rules and sound only like themselves. Dark dirty pop tones collide with sublime haunting melodies to create tunes that will take you soaring into the royal blue twilight.
"Running the gamut of late 70s/early 80s touchstones, the four tracks on Spacegun solder together the shadowy guitar lines of The Cure and Joy Division, with heavily reverbed vocals reminiscent of Siouxsie Sioux. NERVE MAGAZINE
London quintet Keebo have been described as the UK's answer to Real Estate with luscious harmonies entwining with textured guitarscapes.
"What’s initially most awe-inspiring regarding Keebo is their vocal harmonies. As each band member offers you their individual lines, its striking how it all falls together to deliver one whole sound. Guitar parts intertwine amongst a blissful sun-drenched pop sound that’s as easy going as it gets. With all this, Keebo produce a sound exceptionally larger than the sum of their parts. And that surely should be the ultimate objective of any band regardless of set-up." THIS IS FAKE DIY
