The Boston Shakers

= an infusion of heavy beats mixed with fuzzy guitars, shaken with raps and garnished with a dash of white noise =

Originally from france and the us, electronic rock band the boston shakers are now based in the uk.

The band started when six friends with the same passion for music and drinks decided to blend the musical genres they had been listening and playing for years with the night-life atmosphere and environment they were working in as bartenders.

The resulting songs combine the different ingredients and sounds that have influenced the members of the band, from the authenticity of blues and the rawness of british rock to the samples, drums, and production techniques of hip-hop and dance music.

With big mpc beats, wailing guitars and captivating raps served "On the rocks", the boston shakers are a cocktail of good vibrations you won't get enough of.

Pink Cigar

Through lyrics, attitude and a wicked sense of humour, Pink Cigar are inspiring and entertaining a generation in a strange unpredictable age.

There's something different about Pink Cigar, who were formed on the famous streets of Ladbroke Grove, West London; the songs, the attitude, the excitement, the look, the fun, the aggression, the energy, and the fact they really mean it and live it. They give their fans something to believe in and at live shows their energy and lust for life is contagious.

After releasing their debut album ‘We’re Gonna Get You Out Of Here’ the band have extensively toured the UK, Europe and New York City gaining momentum and earning their reputation as ’the biggest baddest live show in town’ Evening Standard.

Couples

Couples are a five-piece alt-rock band from London. Drawing on inspiration from Pulp, Mystery Jets and The Clash, the band‘s sound flits effortlessly from punk, to heavy rock, to commercial pop.

Having spent the last three years writing, developing their sound and broadening their live experience, the band have picked up various accolades, such as being named as one of The Roundhouse’s Emerging Artists for 2017, which led to them performing at Frank Turner’s ‘One Fest’, being featured on a Christmas special of NTV’s ‘Music’n’Adda’ and performance slots at The Alternative Escape and Shindignation.

Spilt Milk Society

They have quickly established themselves as part of the thriving Birmingham music scene and gained attention from BBC Introducing; doing live sessions for WM and Shropshire whilst gaining airtime on Radio 1, Radio 2 and Radio 6 Music. Further afield the milky boys have since been hand picked by Steve Lamacq to play on the BBC Introducing stage at the Great Escape Festival and have supported the likes of Superfood, Fickle Friends, Tender and Marsicans.

BBC Introducing’s Adam Crowther called Spilt Milk Society “the most exciting band we’ve championed years” and said that “they have a bold, energetic and instantly lovable sound to their music”. Fred Perry Sub Culture called them “one of Birmingham’s brightest future bands”.
