Post-punk 4 piece from south east London
RenattaJane are one of the most exciting rock bands in London today. Since forming in 2015, this gutsy four piece have been turning heads across the UK and Europe. Their sound has drawn comparisons with Jack White and The Cribs with punchy melodies and razor sharp hooks. All the while, frontman Jono Linden leads proceedings with unstoppable energy and charisma.
The release of their debut EP ‘In My Head’ saw the boys pick up a solid fan base and anticipation has been rife for their next offering.
The Long Faces first developed a love of unusual music whilst at school in Canterbury, soaking up the city’s heritage of progressive rock (Caravan, Soft Machine, Gong) along with contemporary jazz, 60’s psychedelia and choral music. Combining agitated, emotive performance and a modern pop slant, the group has developed a style that both recalls its influences and pursues a path of its own. It is this blend of old and new which can explain the dreamlike sensation at the heart of their sound – surprising yet familiar; abstract and yet relatable.

WAIT are a 2-piece indie-punk band from Basingstoke and Alresford who write and perform their own songs – Spencer Carroll: vocals and electric guitar, Josh Fletcher on drums. They formed the band 5 years ago while at school and although both lads are only 17 they have already played festivals including Blissfields, Alresford Music Festival and B-Love where they opened for Reef on the main stage. They recently opened for the Brand New Heavies at Weyfest 2019, after winning the Battle Of The Bands.
While the town was sleeping Joseph B. Eden took to wandering the coast under the huge pale moon. A northern English beach rat whose roots would reach out to all things dank and subvert. Attracted to the glare of the unknown, he replants himself deep down south. Far from the post industrial wastelands, where he hears dreams are realised and streets are clad with gold. With no map home he finds himself lost in the city of Bristol on the muddy banks of the Avon, making a pittance peddling his crude poetry at local vaudeville shows for like minded misanthropes and undesirables.
Slow like a feeling is a duo playing a skuzzy mixtape of dirty electronic beats, postpunk guitars, grooves and synthwave cherry on top.
FFO Fat white Family, Tom Yorke, Early Cure (Pornography/ Kiss me, Kiss me, Kiss me era)
Just another "Punk-ish" band believing that there is still a demand for the brilliant CBGBs born genre of music.
