For fans of

Electric

by Bugeye

We are a disco punk pop band that loves to blend disco beats with 80s synths, punk pop buzz-saw guitar, punch in the face bass and vocals packed with hooks. Our new single, Electric, is about the fleeting nature of modern day love - with fuzz, buzz and shouts.

For fans of

Basic Bitches

We're Krystal and Naomi from Brooklyn (although we're really from all over the place). We're fast, fun, loud, and maybe a little silly. Sometimes we're mean, sometimes we're serious, and sometimes we just want to sing songs about cats. Relatable content is our calling.

For fans of

Sister Ghost

Sister Ghost is the project of Shannon O'Neill, but live is a 4 piece band. We've supported Shellac, Pussy Riot and LeButcherettes, been played on BBC 6 Music and was the Next Wave artist on BBC Radio 1 Indie Show last month. We have a reputation for high energy performances - all killer, no filler!

For fans of

Lionizer

Heyo - we're Lionizer, an indie pop punk trio out of Perth, WA. Semi Permanent was written, recorded and produced entirely within our living room, and we are super proud of it. Semi permanent is all about the struggle with growing up, getting old, and falling away from your friends.

For fans of

Wild Mercury

Wild Mercury originally wanted to start a folk group that focused on warm vocal harmonies. Surrounded by instruments in their dark jam basement, they got caught up by an urge of rock, of rooted sounds and of an unfulfilled dream of a riot youth. Better late than never.

For fans of

Lionizer

Lionizer are an indie-punk tour de force of blood, sweat and body parts. Their songs deal with insecurity, promiscuity, suicidal ideation... but with a focus on the hope that things can be better and that you don't have to buy into soul-grinding social expectations.
