"RVG evoke 80s Australian bands that crammed garage rock cred with sun-dappled hooks, such as Sunnyboys or the Go-Betweens. What makes these songs so moving is not Vager’s voice itself but her delivery. Her fierceness, her flow and how clear it is she’s singing about what she knows.” - Kate Hennessy, The Guardian
The trio is comprised of Paz Maddio (guitar, vocal), Marta Zabala (drums), and Luke Tristram (bass); three friends with longstanding bar experience and active roles in the London DIY scene, having also played in Los Cripis, Major Malfunction and COP.
Brighton based four-piece Breathe Panel sprung out of a vibrant scene of musicians playing and gigging together. Between writing in a shared house basement and taking long walks on the South Downs, Breathe Panel have crafted their own sound based around the intuitive songwriting partnership of Josh Tyler and Nick Green. Recalling thoughtful days spent outdoors, Nick's vocals wash across bright, shimmering guitars and intricate drum patterns to create something beautifully expansive yet highly introspective. Signed to FatCat Records (C Duncan, TRAAMS, The Twilight Sad) and now based between London and Brighton, Breathe Panel are gearing up to release their debut album on July 13th 2018. Recorded with Hookworms frontman and production wizard MJ, the band have drawn upon musical influences including Chris Cohen, Real Estate and Deerhunter.
