The ever evolving HAPPYNESS return. Founded in 2013, the group - consisting of core members Jonny Allan and Ash Kenazi - have acquired consistency in the ways they express their creativity; be it the standard album release formula (their two LPs ‘Weird Little Birthday’ and ‘Write In’ have each accrued critical acclaim) or through Kenazi’s recurring South London based drag clubnight ‘BDE’. Their now signature alt-rock stylings are laden with vulnerable vocals and charmingly laid-back guitar riffs, treading similar paths to that of predecessors Yo La Tengo and Grandaddy.
Yeah, another band. Pet Shimmers is a brand new, supercharged seven-piece based out of Bristol. Having played their first show live on BBC 6 Music just a month after their formation (noted by Tom Ravenscroft as what must be a formation-to-radio record), the group dropped their debut record Face Down In Meta on January 31st, including the singles "Post-Dick Circle Fuck" and “Feels Hz”, featuring Goat Girl, before heading out on a mammoth UK/EU tour with (Sandy) Alex G.
LIME are a four-piece band going against the genre norms. Fusing together catchy indie and surf psych melodies, with sarcastic & socially aware lyrics, the band are blending together their musical talents with modern technology to create a sound quite like no other.
'LIME are savage. Surf N Turf is the only cheese-based debut line opener in the history of music.'- Phil Taggart, Radio1
LIME have already made a name for themselves in the Brighton and Guildford music scenes. The band have done a headline show at Manchester’s venue Jimmy’s and a packed out night headlining The Boileroom in Guildford. Having supported bands such as Ugly, Pillow Queens and Little Comets, they’re certainly not an act you want to miss.
