The birth of the UK event in January 2015 saw two sold-out shows featuring the likes of The Fat White Family, Ghostpoet and Teleman at Village Underground. Twelve months on sees a similarly varied line-up that includes the return of Infectious’ Bloc Party, much vaunted newcomers Wichita’s Oscar and Blaenavon from the Transgressive stable alongside Play It Again Sam’s newly signed FEWS. Representing Heavenly Recordings are TOY whilst recent addition to the Stolen Recordings roster, Thomas Cohen completes the line-up.
Signed amidst a wave of acclaim some five years ago, making an immediate impact with their self-titled debut and its successor Join The Dots. TOY mark an early return to the live arena in the New Year. Recently seen as part of the SexWitch collaboration with producer Dan Carey and Bat For Lashes’ Natasha Khan, the band wield an unerring cache of tracks - a testament to their irrepressible inventiveness and determination, unpredictable and sonically propulsive, TOY continue to experiment and push the boundaries that will continue with the arrival of their imminent third album, sometime in 2016
Emerging from North West London, 24 year old Oscar Scheller came armed with a Macbook full of the tunes needed to save British pop. Consistently hailed as one of the most brilliant new songwriting talents around, and with a live show that charms all who see it, he is currently putting the finishing touches to his debut album.
Thomas Cohen is the former frontman of S.C.U.M. Now a solo artist whose music is informed by the freer moments of Van Morrison, Todd Rundgren and Scott Walker, his debut album - recorded over a turbulent two year period - will be released via Stolen this spring. This show will mark his live debut.
