THE BLACK SAND Since their triumphant return from Austria’s Snowbombing Festival 2011 and being dubbed ‘King’s of the Mountain’ for their exceptional performance, London-born foursome The Black Sand have already established themselves a burgeoning reputation and are hotly tipped as ‘Breakthrough band of 2011’ by the likes of BBC Introducing’s Will Walder and Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music). Expect a set charged through with rock, indie, dance and fizz pop from Colliers Wood’s proudest export.

“Amazing! Can’t wait to hear the EP – they’ve got that 70s proggy feel and brought it right up to now. I want to hear more!” Will Walder, BBC Introducing

LOOK, STRANGER! With strong pop melodies and song writing sensibilities pushing through the core of their music, Look, Stranger! use elements of electronic beats and a driving rhythm section to forge a reputation for themselves as one to watch. With support performances with Clock Opera and collaborations with the esteemed Charles ‘Chicky’ Reeves (Radiohead, Bjork, Grace “don’ f-wit me” Jones) on their tracks, the band have garnered plays on BBC6 Music and performances at well-known venues including The Lexington and Fleur-De-Lys club.

THE RUBICON This Portsmouth-born fivesome first gathered momentum in a garage with pictures of icons on walls and hand-me-down guitars armed with their own stories and Indie/Rock sensibilities which have seen them perform for sold-out shows through-out the UK, so be sure not to miss out.

LITTLE SIGNALS With a love of music and a strong friendship Elizabeth Caney, Steven Harris, Russell Jackson came together to create their own unique brand of Ambient, Indie-Pop that is sure to get you swaying to the beat. These three are ‘Big News’, and definitely ones to look out for in the future.
