BBC Music's Biggest Weekend - Fringe on Saturday 19th May 2018
Lover– beefy soul inflected pop rock with a great vocal, techy ’80s crossover sound, big guitars, dance/hiphop textures and a chant along chorus perfect for radio. Blondie/Cardigans/Prince… ‘A cross between the song you can’t get out of your head, and something you’ve never heard before but are desperate to hear again, Lover will stimulate your aural senses with music from the depths of dark and twisted cognition. You’ll find everything was grey before discovering this band, now grey is blue and lines are blurred – yet you’ll witness more of the world than you ever deemed possible. You’ve been offered a window into the unknown, are you ready to jump?’ Not many, we love Lover. ‘Lots Holloway is a vivid pop newcomer, someone whose sheer energy helps her stand out from the crowd. Born in a small Cornish town, she performs bubbling pop music laden with colour, which gets under your skin with a message of pure joy in the everyday is something everyone can relate to’ CLASH Magazine. Yep we concur, soaring, uplifting pop with huge hooks, damn good. Cats On The Beach– Taking the darker but more organic end of The Cure, getting some baroque pop elements on board care of some fabulous violin playing and harnassing a little Radiohead noir too. Piss In The Wind – Our favourite band around 10 years ago, whose intense, edgy, post punk cum avant indie cum rocknroll romantique shoulda wowed more people at the time…well they’re back so maybe now will be Piss In The Wind’s moment. Acidic pop beauty.
