PLASTIC MERMAIDS

Plastic Mermaids are a 5 piece band from the Isle of Wight who have spent most of the last year hidden away in their home studio constructing a unique style of folkedelic dream pop, escaping only for the occasional surf. Weaving together vocal harmonies and a diverse selection of instruments they create folky melodies with experimental electronic textures, that occasionally build to an epic cinematic crescendo or just as likely drift away into the soundscape.

GOAN DOGS

GOAN DOGS’ unique cinematic sound is laden with rich harmonies, infectious rhythms and a shade of the calypso sleaze. With striking visuals thrown into the mix, their atmospheric live shows have captivated audiences at packed out venues up and down the UK.

Since releasing their first EP 20 Minutes From The Border, GOAN DOGS have gone on to develop their sound with the Double A Side Never Gonna Let You Down/Nothing Like This and their latest single and video Running. 

The group has picked up some glowing press from the likes of The Fly and Louder Than War, as well as airplay on BBC 6 Music and BBC Radio Bristol. They’ve secured slots with Maps & Atlases, Kyla La Grange, George Ezra and Zun Zun Egui among others, and played large UK festivals, including Green Man, Dot to Dot and Larmer Tree Festival.

LITTLE DUSTY

Drowned in Sound: “if you’re into the kind of tunes that will transport you to an altogether sunnier place, they’ll be your new favourites.”

SOMETHING ANORAK
www.somethinganorak.com 

Lo-fi duo based in Bristol in the South West of England. A sterling crop of broken guitar-laden, layered vocal-soaked numbers, vintage synths complete things for a near-perfect palette of sounds.
