>> April Towers
After the release of their acclaimed single Modern Psyche late last year, the Nottingham lads immediately hit the studio with award winning, Aussie producer, Catherine Marks (Wolf Alice, Foals) to start work on their new EP Silent Fever. Drawing on the duo’s colourful spectrum of musical influences, the title track is musical hydration, as it combines light melodies with fulfilling bass tones and experimental synths and has been signed to forward thinking Indie label Lab Records.
Acclaimed website Gigwise has hailed the new single saying, “It's time to dance away the winter blues, as 'Silent Fever' is a blisse-out inescapably infectious disco-rock banger, immediately transporting you to far more tropical climbs in a way that we haven't heard since Friendly Fires. The world is a bright place with you, April Towers.”
>> Everything by Electricity
Whilst lush pop beats strongly at its heart, dense waves of guitar, reverberating walls of noise and fragile melodies
collide amidst sparkling neon-lit synths, dreamy vocals and ghostly shapes via the night sky; anchored tight by pulsing
bass, throbbing drums and drum machines.
The band’s sound is littered with the strains of alienation and longing for escape one would expect from childhoods
spent gazing across cold barren landscapes deep behind the iron curtain.
On moving from Siberia to London, singer/songwriter Yulia (guitar, synths, vocals) quietly crafted a collection of demo
material in her bedroom studio and expanded the line-up with the addition of Daniel (bass guitar, synths) and
Manoela (drums, pads).
>> Matt Perriment
Matt Perriment is a 24 year old singer songwriter based in London. Establishing himself on the South England festival scene, he began writing folk and indie inspired music seven years ago.
His debut EP Everlast, released on all major platforms in March 2017, won early support from Musicmusingsandsuch, and received a positive response online (and across digital distribution sites), that lead to a successful string of shows across the UK including The Lexington, The Camden Assembly, St Pancras Old Church, The Islington and the Groucho Club. Matt is also frequently involved with Sofar Sounds, and has played multiple London and International Sofar performances.
>> Joe Jury
22 year old soulful pop/ singer songwriter. Joe's influences started with the folk legends and that's what initially got him into song writing. Joe says — «Dylan and Neil Young were the first singer/songwriters I listened to, so obviously my music started off with a folky edge to it, I've always been a fan of folk music.» Joe's recent influences steer more towards 80's pop music including the likes of Peter Gabriel, Paul Simon, Prince and Michael Jackson.
>> Tina Edwards (DJ Set)
EZH founder (fka Jazz Standard) and Worldwide FM presenter, Tina plays her favourite new releases with gloopy synths, rhythmic hooks and euphoric Sunday moods.
