School of Language
David Brewis’ Field Music offshoot is pop music at its finest. The band’s latest album, Old Fears, released on Memphis Industries in April, is a place of clipped falsetto, melancholic funk, iridescent electro, shimmering post-punk, futurist prog and so much more.
Lanterns On The Lake
The Newcastle-based indie rock band’s latest album for influential label Bella Union continues to showcase a band excelling in their field. Exquisitely crafting symphonic rock, folk and electronics, their live show is eclectic and powerful.
Bridie Jackson & The Arbour
Since playing Glastonbury in 2013, the contemporary folk quartet’s stock has continued to rise and the release of their latest album, New Skin, has garnered considerable critical acclaim.
The Futureheads frontman goes it alone. Barry Hyde’s piano-based songs are at times tortured, yet playfully honest. The music of one man and his piano has never been so devastating.
Stunning folk songstress whose new material is dark and experimental.
