Early Hours Since forming in 2012, the band have amassed a loyal following with their refreshing indie tunes and explosively energetic live shows. Early Hours blend electric indie britpop with a unique African vibe, drawing influence from The Strokes, Bombay Bicycle Club and Vampire Weekend. Their eclectic blend of soaring pop hooks, powerful electric guitars and jiving beats is the soundtrack to your summer. The band's 2014 summer single, Smells Like Summer, put them on the international map after reaching #1 on the Soundcloud Indie Rock chart. The track went viral resulting in Early Hours becoming the first South African band in history to reach one million plays on a single track. Their latest release, Dance Along, charted at #12 on the US Viral Top 50 on Spotify. The track was written in South Africa, mixed in Australia by JP Fung (Last Dinosaurs, Jinja Safari) and mastered in the United States by 2x Grammy Nominee Joe Laporta (The Killers, Imagine Dragons). Bellicose Formed in 2016 in Harrow, Middlesex, through a love of shared influences including the likes of Fleetwood Mac, Wolf Alice and Warpaint. Paring catchy guitar and bass riffs with three part harmonies the girls have a growing fan base around London. The band have recently released their first single, Your City, which is now available on all major platforms! ToMacco Five piece Lofi-indie Psychedelic Faze rock. Based in London, but coming from the countryside ToMacco was formed in early 2016 after two friends Benjamin Reeve (Guitar/Vocals) and Alex Bishop (Guitar) attended their second King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard gig. Being blown away and incredibly inspired they enlisted the help of Nick Oakes (Drums), Mathew West (Synthesisers) and Sam Mitchell (Bass) and began crafting a unique blend of psychedelic guitar riffs, chord progressions in open tunings and catchy synth hooks.
