Bands and new music for fans of parquet-courts

Getting Late

by Science is Fiction

Hi, we play a mix of laid back 70s power pop paired with frenetic 90s indie rock. Been described as "Elvis Costello on steroids" and "a bit Parquet Courts...a bit parent rock". Our debut EP was recorded at the NMC and mixed by local Calgary legend Lorrie Matheson.

HUSSY

Hi There! I'm Sophie aka HUSSY from SE London. I write, produce and play everything on my tracks as a one woman bedroom band. I'd best describe it as dream pop with elements of grunge and shoegaze textures.

HUSSY

South London based HUSSY (multi instrumentalist, Sophie Nicole Ellison) makes music that’s both juxtaposingly lullful & playful yet as raw and direct as the name of her pseudonym. She records, produces and layers all instrumentation in her home studio in London.

For fans of

Menace Beach

On "Black Rainbow Sound" Leeds based group Menace Beach venture much further into a colourful world of bizzaro no-wave analogue synths and static drenched electronic euphoria, which they have been circling for some time.

My Pleasure

I met myself in Hull, UK, in 1988 when I was born and have been together ever since. I describe myself as “weird pop” because my mum thinks it’s weird. She doesn’t like the ones that use distortion and she describes them as “scratchy”. I’m aiming to release as many albums as possible before I die.
