Get a taste of some of the freshest sounds from the post-rock, post-punk and math rock scenes, with three projects fusing familiar sounds in new ways.

A Sudden Burst of Colour

Hailing from Motherwell, Scotland, this quartet captures fans of electronic, ambient, dance and rock music with their soundscapes and encapsulating songwriting. Their sound is bright, shimmering and generally uplifting.

Their recent single "I Am The Storm" was premiered on Daniel P. Carter's BBC Radio 1 Rock Show and they're currently in pre-production for their forthcoming album, which is due for release at the end of the year

The instrumental quartet have four globally acclaimed EP releases under their belt, ...which is evidenced by features from BBC Introducing, The Scotsman, Earmilk (USA), Arctic Drones (Turkey), Stereofox (Germany) and many more, so this is a good time to catch them before they break into the wider world.

''Atmospheric, warming, ethereal, uplifting" — Punktastic

"A whole, a fun and meditative frolic through realms of bright notes and fuzzy ideas." — Heavy Blog Is Heavy

Hoggs Bison

A moody, almost post-punk Slint-like sound from this Bristol-based band, who've been making ripples in the math rock scene already, with a set at ArcTanGent Festival and recent support slots with Axes, Poly-Math and I, The Lion.

Their debut album "Aeons" was included in Fecking Bahamas' Top 50 albums of 2018, so we can't wait to see what these guys can do live!

"Unassuming, slow-build instrumentals delivering highest rewards" — Echoes And Dust

"While the music is still played with a technical brilliance, there is a warmth to the bands sound that definitely makes the stand out" — Circuit Sweet


A rare gig from the soloist, who creates layers of tight guitar melodies and riffs by looping them over and over again, before sitting down at his drum kit and smashing out some fantastic rhythms to them.

The range of dynamics and changes he achieves, as well as his ability to make the entire piece a coherent tune from start to finish, is astonishing.

We've seen him perform around the country, including at ArcTanGent and at our late night Facemelter with Poly-Math and EVILLOOKINGBIRD, so we're glad to see him make a return.

"An extraordinary maelstrom of soundscapes, loops, beats and power" — Louder Than War Magazine
