“They give an absolute schooling to anyone who underestimates indie’s power to push boundaries, and somehow they do it without sounding as if they’re bothered at all about anything other than falling into the music ...” The Phonograph
“For fans of shoegaze acts from decades past, such as My Bloody Valentine or Slowdive, a lot of boxes are ticked, whilst fans of neo-psychedelic acts such as Tame Impala will find a great listen as well ...” Concrete
“Music this good, beyond good, is something special; leaving you blissed out and in a beautiful place.” Local Sound Focus
The Calls are an enigma. Tom Fuller weaves melodic songwriting with wistful vocals and cryptic wordplay, while lead guitarist Will Johnson is a filmmaker and visual artist with an unrestrained and cinematic sound; and bassist Marcell Haslewood, whose unconventional approach to playing invariably defies expectation. Their versatile sound makes them difficult to define and fascinating to listen to, gliding through dark, psychedelic dub-rock to catchy indie jangle pop, and count the likes of Josh Warrington, Tom Hingley and Peanut among their fans. No one else sounds like THE CALLS.
JAPANESE RACCOON DOG
A math rock outfit hailing from Leeds, UK. Heavily influenced by Delta Sleep, Covet, and Intervals; this band combines interwinding melodies, haunting vocals, and an infectious rhythm section to orchestrate complex yet grasping original compositions.
MY NOSE IS PIERCED
A self-produced indie artist that creates her own universe through songs- as the world she lives in is too disappointing, and not red enough. Her songs are mostly inspired by literature, movies and art as well as her own experiences. She moved to Great Britain in 2019 to find a more oniric place. However, she realized that she needs to create one of her own. To not be lonely there she started releasing music to invite people to her little universe and vibe with them together.
So far she has released a few singles, the upcoming music will be creating a space that will slowly unfold the story of My nose is pierced.
Her sound is inspired by Crawlers, Mother Mother, Mothica and Nothing but thieves.
An indie rock project formed in Leeds around 2019. Their favourite sounds are: Muggy 00's indie, Superchunk, The Wedding Present and Martha. Their favourite pastimes include: Birdwatching, Model Villages, Exploding and Meeting Gary Lineker.
