    SNOWAPPLES
    Three girls from Amsterdam, with different musical backgrounds decided to start a band.
    They play a variation of own compositions and forgotten old songs. Their voices in harmony together will give you goosebumps.
    The songs vary from slow ballads to fast and playful songs performed on banjo, guitar and a variety of instruments like mandoline, ukulele, violin, klokkenspiel & accordeon.

    EMILE BERNARD
    Emile Bernard is the stage name of London-based songwriter/producer Paolo Fornasari, who dresses like a suave 19th century french painter and offers, with his melancholic​ indie​ pop songs, quirky poetry with tints of post rock and electronica.
    This modern/vintage mash up aims for a unique sound with stripped down romance and quality like Villagers and a raw voice joining ranks with the likes of Woodkid.

    Having had recent constant radio support from Tom Robinson (6Music) and John Kennedy (XFM) , Emile just comes from supporting UK band Dry The River on few dates of their 2015 EU tour.

    THE DEATH OF POP (Bubble Bath EP Launch)
    The Death Of Pop have created their own sub-genre called ‘janglegaze’. Lovers of old school indie cruisings can therefore expect a twanging soundscape which shuffles between Slowdive and St Christopher, while the phased folk vocals on ‘Tell Me My Name’ can only be described as being bloody hecking gorgeous.

    New EP ‘Bubble Bath’ released on 10 July via Label Fandango.

    Wild Cat Strike will be releasing a new EP Produced by Mike Lord (Wytches, Tigercub, Nick Cave, The Cure, British Sea Power and Florence and the Machine) in 2015. The new EP ‘I Want to Be The White That Sleeps Inside Your Bones’ takes a different direction from their previous release, ‘Attentive Blood.’ ‘IWTBTWTSIYB’ consists of 3 epic pieces totalling 25 minutes. The songs build with grand introduction, before the weathered vocals of lead singer Danny Byrom, progress from whispered lament to howled declaration of his intimately consuming lyrics.

    Having last toured the UK in December alongside long­time PT favourites Gnarwolves, state­side alternative indie five­piece Prawn will be heading back to Europe alongside sad rockers Hindsights and emo outfit Brightr.

    Prawn released their latest offering ‘Kingfisher‘ last year to great critical acclaim. Hindsights unveiled their excellent debut LP earlier this year, with Brightr celebrating his self­titled EP.“Prawn have been quietly tossing pebbles into the pond that is the recent Emo Revival, creating subtle ripples here and there, but Kingfisher is no pebble. Rather, Kingfisher is the boulder shooting out waves in every direction” ­ Property Of Zack

    “Prawn have shaped themselves into a band who offer more than lyrics, but counseling. And Kingfisher is catharsis created not through grit, but melody.” ­ Absolute Punk

    “’Settled’ is an oddly beautiful piece of work ­ rhythmically complex yet melodically simple, Prawn continue to bewilder, perplex and entertain.” ­ clashmusic.com

    FOREVER CULT
    FOREVER CULT are an alternative rock band based in West Yorkshire, making a loud albeit impressive noise, blending the ball-bustingly brutal moments of 1990s Seattle grunge with the jaunty pop-minded lyrical charm of mid-00s British indie. After spending some time as a two piece, Kieran (guitar and lead vocals) and Aaron (drums), have been joined this summer by Alex (bass) to complete the line-up, and record and release their debut EP, “Fuxx”.

    EVANS THE DEATH
    Evans the Death return with their anxiously-awaited second album Expect Delays. Recorded again with producer Rory Atwell, the album bristles with an underlying tension and veers from rip-roaring noise to quiet contemplation, underpinned by Katherine Whitaker’s extraordinary voice.
    Still barely out of their teens, there’s a tremendous sense across Expect Delays of a band coming into their own, honing a plethora of influences to make a sound that is uniquely them. Each song on the album has a different feel to it: some of them are melodic and pretty; some of them heavy and dissonant; and some of them are, to quote guitarist Dan Moss, “a bit strange”.
    While retaining the post-punk and 90s alt-rock inspired elements that peppered their debut, the music is more expressive, heavier and more experimental, and the lyrics more nuanced, the sense of despair leavened by sharp wordplay and humour.
    The unsettling undercurrent of melancholy and hopelessness that pervades the record has its roots in the last three years, spent eking out an existence on the poverty line in Cameron’s Britain, leaving them with a succession of minimum-wage jobs and unemployment benefits interviews. As guitarist Dan Moss relates, the album is about “being in London and feeling hopeless and a bit lost. Not having any money, relationships falling apart, things just not connecting or going anywhere and getting absolutely wasted all the time.”
    More ambitious and focused than their previous record, whilst sacrificing none of their spontaneity and vitality, Expect Delays is a supremely inventive and intelligently crafted album from a band who have suffered for their art, and used that experience to inform and nourish their work. Expect no more delays, Evans the Death have arrived.

    “Part fresh-faced punks, part wise songwriters, Fox and the Law seem to always be creating expectations and then immediately defying them, dashing preconceptions as soon as their rich guitar riffs and vocals rife with sonic time bombs hit listeners’ ears.”

    Our Man In The Bronze Age
    Circuit Breaker
    The Duke Of Zuke

    OUR MAN IN THE BRONZE AGE
    The UK’s Our Man In The Bronze Age began around 2006 as a faceless, art rock, doom-laden side project with a revolving door of musicians, spewing forth an unrelenting assault of guitar riffs and intricate instrumental melodies. Their current iteration is somewhat more settled, seeing the two drummers, guitar assault and dark stage theatrics give way to a more lush sound of sweeping four-part vocal harmonies and deftly played piano sections – the idea being to create pieces of work full of light and dark movements, story-telling and versatile musicianship.

    A Bronze Age live show is something not to be missed, ranging from one voice and a piano to a full-on two drummer, two guitars and bass heavy battering on the senses, a band of extremes would be a worthy moniker The band’s musical ethos is one of anything goes as long as it’s good, trying to make the most out of the talents of each member rather than back themselves into a genre corner.

    This ideology was fully realised on their debut album, The Gallows Tree, an album that contains both brutal heaviness and subtle melody in equal parts while always managing to flow easily between each extreme.

    Our Man In The Bronze Age have proven themselves overtime to be a band never to be underestimated, they will continue to push themselves and any audiences’ hearing range in the pursuit of well crafted and memorable music. With the next E.P already written and recorded, this is a band worth getting on for the ride with as neither they nor anyone else can be truly sure where you’ll end up!

    2015, New E.P ‘Habanero’ pushing the music towards a more song based groove consisting of four tracks was recorded at Livingston Studios, London with legendary English producer Tony Platt (ac/dc, Bob Marley, Motorhead, Soweto Kinch & more)

    RADKEY
    Radkey does whatever they want. Whether it’s hard and fast, or slow and groovy as fuck. Radkey does whatever they want, and that’s what rock and roll is all about. You can hear it in the music and it makes you want to fucking party. Radkey doesn’t cater to one sound by calling themselves a “Punk Band”.

    Radkey is: Dee, Isaiah and Solomon. Dee, the lead singer, guitarist and the oldest of the 3, has a powerful baritone voice, badass guitar solos and an equally powerful love for Japan. Isaiah is the bassist with a fucked up dark mind, and a sexy way with words. Solomon is the drummer and youngest brother. He’s a lover of hot sauce and video games, and he takes it seriously.

    Radkey all grew up in a shitty little pink house in St. Joseph, Missouri. Homeschooled. Bored with nothing to do but listen to their Father’s records and start a band. Radkey is a rock band.
