Ceiling Demons / Weezy Jefferson / Impyus / PWK on Friday 21st June 2019
“Amazingly powerful and heartfelt” - Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music
“Deep, delicious stuff” – Jumbo Records
“There’s something inherently rapturous permeating everything they do” - NARC. Magazine
Alternative art-rap band from North Yorkshire. Born from bereavement, they combine poetic wordplay with cinematic instrumentals. Known for their intense and chaotic performances, they strike heartstrings with themes of love and loss. Art over entertainment, delivered with a punk philosophy.
'With plans to play more live shows soon, he definitely feels like an artist on the up. “We’ve had great support from BBC Radio Leeds, 1Xtra and Radio 1,” he says.' - Yorkshire Evening Post
Weezy's music has been playlisted on BBC Radio 1 & 1xtra and has appeared on platforms such as SBTV and Yorkshire Evening Post.
Weezy has supported a number of live acts in concert, including internationally renowned artists, such as Mos Def (aka Yasiin Bey), KRS - One, The Jungle Brothers, People Under The Stairs, Souls of Mischief and Big Narstie to name a few.
“In short, they are like the nu-metal that stayed relevant, the rap rock that didn’t try to copy the market and the funk rock that never went cliché. With a really avant-garde and new wave sound that might catch you completely off guard.” Music Season
A dynamic writing style has helped Impyus to achieve their unique sound. Mark’s unconventional fretwork compliments Matt’s soundscape of synth, providing Tiph with the platform to deliver the rapid-fire lyrics he is known for. Beneath this lies an inseparable rhythm section with Liam on drums and Joe on bass, intertwining heavy syncopation with strong driving undertones.
Pills Weed and a few Keys
A brand-new Leeds based band combining gangster rap with melodic rock to create a sound they’ve dubbed Rap 'n’ Roll. Imagine if NWA had northern accents and rapped over Ocean Colour Scene, while on crystal meth, and you’d be close.
Music Genres: Alternative, Electronic, Hip Hop
