From grunge-pop, exciting new rappers to industrial doom and drone metal we have announce a whole range of amazing artist and bands to tickle your fancy. Here’s a little look at whats to be expected from this weeks just announce.
CMAT creates humorous songs about serious topics. Her sharp words tells tales of of fast food shop breakdowns and kitchen sink dramas. Musically she shows her love for 80’s Italo disco with her hatred of Virgos over a stupidly catchy choruses.
Being unapologetically honest with her tunes she’s managed to grab the attention Jack Saunders on BBCR1 and Steve Lamacq on 6 Music who have both gave her numerous radio plays, landed Spotify support on NMF UK, Fresh Folk and Folk Pop playlists and a debut play on Apple Music 1 from Matt Wilkinson. This is not a gig to be missed under our disco ball on the 2nd April 2022
AUTHOR AND PUNISHER
Author & Punisher is an industrial doom and drone metal, one man band utilizing primarily custom fabricated machines/controllers and speakers called Drone/Dub Machines. The devices draw heavily on aspects of industrial automation, robotics and mechanical tools and devices, focusing on the eroticism of the interaction with machine.
They are direct, physical, heavy experiences that have amassed praise and intrigue from a wide array of audiences. Pitchfork styled him “immediate but mysterious”, Stereogum described his “chilling, unrecognizable form,” and NPR hails him as “a thrill [who] fires on all cylinders”.
Hailed as one of the most exciting rappers around (Notion named him one of our Ones To Watch for 2021), Jelani Blackman has rapidly been making his mark on the rap landscape. His versatility as an artist sees him challenging racism and inequality in one track “Tricky” then flipping to fun and hardcore nights out in the next “Foolish”
Gaining credit from Jack Saunders, BBC Radio 1 say he’s “One of the most exciting things out there right now” and featuring on Gorillaz new EP ‘Meanwhile’. He’s one to watch and most defiantly one to check out at our venue.
SAD BOYS CLUB
London’s sad boys club are back at the forefront of the capital’s creative scene. Combining the emotive sensibilities of 80’s pop with an erudite brand of emo-tinged indie rock, the four-piece have honed their sound during the pandemic, releasing singles ‘25’ and ‘could have beens (& what ifs)’ to consistent acclaim.
Rock music is about to get a shot in the arm from Cassyette, a no-holds-barred musician from Essex who is loudly and unashamedly reclaiming her rock roots. Her journey has taken her through everything from drum’n’bass and house to pure pop and the result is a chest thumping mix of pop, rock and metal, addressing everything from feminism to trauma. Cassyette is loud, proud and taking absolutely no shit from anyone.
THE SKINNER BROTHERS
The Skinner Brothers have been bubbling under as a hot indie tip since forming in 2018. Highlights so far include a personal invitation from Carl Barât to join The Libertines on the road, which they followed by headlining a tour for new music champions This Feeling. Their recent deals with Blaggers Records and management company Magus Entertainment (The Streets, Dexys, Duran Duran) will help elevate The Skinner Brothers to their full potential.
London band The skinner Brothers are coming to deaf after accelerate their growing attention by sharing their brand new EP ‘Iconic’, which is out now on Blagger Records. It’s released alongside a video for its title track and lead single, which was premiered by Steve Lamacq at 6 Music.
Born in Durban, South Africa, and now based in London, multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter Bella Latham adopted the moniker Baby Queen to write about the whirlwind life of Instagram influencers and fashion parties she found herself immersed in when she moved to London as a teenager.
Baby Queen makes grunge-pop for a disaffected Gen Z, tackling issues like internet addiction and mental health head-on with incisive satire.
Debut single ‘Internet Religion’ fuses her pop roots – she was raised in the school of Taylor Swift and The 1975 – with psychedelic synths, guitars, and a biting dissection of “the way that social media affects our opinion of ourselves.”
