At a time when redefining genres is ever more improbable, Laurel Canyons deliver a familiar yet refreshing take on a quintessentially American sound with all the character and vigour that emanating from the North of England brings. Expect magnificent songs that deal with everyday honest realities, like getting by on your wits, falling in and out of love, and making the best of the hand you’re dealt with.
The Orielles, a three piece 60's-inspired indie, pop surf band, have burst onto the music scene, with a style, aesthetic and sound all of their own.
The band, formed in 2012 in Halifax, consists of Henry Wade, the guitarist, Esme Hand Halford, on bass and vocals and her sister Sid Hand Halford, on drums.
Taking in influences way beyond their years, The Oreoh's are steeped in retro style and are already gaining critical acclaim from the likes of Steve Lamacq.
They’ve supported TOY, PINS, Melody's Echo Chamber, Best Friends, The Crookes and Go- Kart Mozart, Lawrence from FELT's new band. They are set to support The Primitives and The Darling Buds in London in April, 2014
St.Somebody are a four piece indie arrangement hailing from Halifax. Forming in late 2010 they have built up an impressive following in a spectacularly short amount of time. Their exciting live performances are enough to win you over, but you'll have to be the judge of that. Heart felt lyrics and dramatic guitar lines, driven forward by exciting percussion, creates a fresh faced take on indie pop not to be missed. Wear a helmet, it might just blow your mind.
Cue the kind of indie riffs that make Two Door Cinema Club look like a group of nuns, vocals that cut in and out of volume and range and outfits reminiscent of Topman's finest models.
