The thrilling New York based band The Britanys have already cemented their place as one of the city’s must-know bands. From the apartment the four-piece share in Bushwick, to the stages of New York and further afield, they've forged a distinctive, immediate sound and a formidable live show. Their efforts have been rewarded with plaudits from the likes of NME, DIY, Interview Magazine, and Rolling Stone MX; support slots with Public Access TV, Hinds, and Rey Pila, and more; and reputation-building sets at SXSW two years in a row, and at rapturously received gigs overseas in London.
Their 2017 EP 'Five A Side' won them praise for its no-frills indie, and effortlessly cool attitude, but their arsenal of new songs, like the polished, glimmering swoon of recent single 'When I'm With You', show a band unwilling to rest on its laurels. It's only the beginning for The Britanys, but that makes their future look all the more exciting.
The Britanys are:
Lucas Long - vocals, guitar
Lucas Carpenter - bass
Jake Williams - guitar
Steele Kratt - drums
Signed to FatCat Records (C Duncan, TRAAMS, Sigur Rós) and now based in London and Brighton, Breathe Panel released their debut album on July 13th 2018. Recorded with Hookworms frontman and production wizard MJ at his Suburban Home Studio in Leeds, the band have drawn upon musical influences including Chris Cohen, Real Estate and Deerhunter.
Meeting at University, Josh Tyler, Nick Green and Benjamin Reeves 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 and Nick.
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. They combine writing about topics including anxiety, colours, people, memories and the cure of nature with capturing a sound that makes them feel good.
The album has received critical acclaim as BBC 6 Music’s Album Of The Day and with support from the likes of John Kennedy (Radio X), Matt Wilkinson (Beats 1), KEXP, Felix White (Soho Radio), So Young Magazine, DIY, Dork and Clash.
Having already shared stages with the likes of Methyl Ethel, Quilt, Pip Blom, Holy Wave and The Big Moon, their live show is not one to miss.
Breathe Panel are: Nick Green (vocals and guitar), Josh Tyler (guitar), Benjamin Reeves (drums) and Alex Turner (bass guitar).
Meat Candy formed in the summer of 2016 in London, England. With a common thrill for 70’s prog and modern psychedelic music, they got together at 123 studios in Peckham with Brett Shaw to record their first EP titled “Pursuit of Sounds”. Days after recording, Meat Candy quickly grabbed the attention of Dirty Melody Records which led to a vinyl release in March 2017 with a successful sold out EP release show at the London Fields Brewery. After sharing the stage with international bands such as Wand, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, Male Gaze, Wooden Indian Burial Ground, The Mystery Lights and Mr. Airplane Man, the highly engaging and loud shows of the band retained minds of music peers, promoters and industry. Meat Candy is set to release their first full length LP in 2019.
