Gemini Eye

Gemini Eye are a psych-pop band from London. They are receptive to constructive criticism, but honestly pretty intransigent. Is that a good thing? Not sure, but it is true. At least two of the members will tell you that They Might Be Giants is the greatest rock and roll band in the world, and not even feel embarrassed. Pronouns are they/them, individually and as a unit. Based on current projections, their next two albums will receive a Pitchfork 6.3 and an 8.1 respectively.

Future West

Future West is the musical brainchild of Irish/London based multi-instrumentalist/producer Francis Watters. Since conceiving the project in 2016 Francis has self-recorded and released 2017’s debut record “Holy Shit… Here Come The Future West” as well as co-recording/engineering/mixing the very limited 7’ vinyl run of 2016’s “Call Me stupid” and 2018’s “Radio Town”. After recently relocating to London and turning Future West into a solo venture, Francis has gifted the project with two very diverse live shows.

Actual Fact

Actual Fact is popping up everywhere at the moment — tracks that have no outward form but just meander through the schedule, and often, but not always, are played out live in real time. In spite of their spontaneous feel and free flow these tracks have usually been carefully orchestrated, and that’s part of Actual Fact appeal: crafted to sound like life itself, impressionistic, en plein air, long-running. It’s not to everyone’s taste — too slow, too redolent of nostalgia for a mystical past where there was once time and space to think.

Sunny Robertson

Residing in Peckham, South London, 25 year old multi-instrumentalist singer songwriter, Sunny Robertson has been dabbling in the lofi bedroom indiepop world with his quirky songs, honest, lighthearted lyrics and boyish charm. His home studio, 'Float Rock' has become a hub for artists to explore DIY music in homely comfort, bringing the artist and audience together by creating familiar atmosphere within the recordings and by not taking things too seriously.
