Harry Mold, who was born in Basildon to an “old-school West Ham father and an Essex-born mother” but grew up in Benidorm and London, has arrived at a pivotal moment in music culture.
Mold is the antithesis of the algorithm – a self-produced multi-instrumentalist who funnels the experiences of an early-twenties youngster in 2021 into infectious rock anthems. As a songwriter, he dives into generational unrest, where every emotion is hashtagged with profound colloquialisms, which then explode in massive choruses. As a live performer, he ratchets up that anxiety, and when the choruses hit, the payload is euphoric. His nickname is H-Bomb for a reason.
Harry Mold, a 22-year-old Londoner with a batch of gritty-graceful songs says, “I love the effect I have on people when I’m onstage, the adrenaline is insane, being vulnerable in front of all those people…” Coming from a freckly ginger lad with braces on his teeth, you wonder if he’s blowing smoke, but then you hear the music, eventually get to see him perform live and think, “Wait a second – Harry WHO?”
With support from Sophie Kilburn
Sophie Kilburn is a Derbyshire born singer, songwriter who merges melancholic pop with fiery indie-angst. Her bold sonic fusion of old-school rocker & modern pop warrior is inspired by Alt-Pop heroes like Haim, Soccer Mummy & Maggie Rogers, with a heavy emphasis on lyrics & storytelling.
From releasing “alt-indie banger” (Fame Magazine) Indigo Fever and “driving pop-anthem” (Complex UK) Broke, Sophie has received global praise and recognition as an “undeniable songwriting talent” (XS Noize), as well as, backing from BBC Introducing, Earmilk and Mahogany. Sophie then followed with her stripped back & intimate single Call Home, premiering in Clash as “something special”, leading to her playing Amazing Radio’s virtual CMJ Festival alongside Declan McKenna and Wolf Alice and being named ‘Best of 2020’ by Chalk Pit Records.
Sophie striked again with fiery indie-pop single “Movements”, gaining backing from the likes of Flux FM and Diva Magazine as a “one to watch”. Soon after Sophie followed up with ‘I’m In Love With My Therapist’, the second instalment off her debut EP My Room Made Public, digging emotionally deep and continuing to question how much of our lives should we share? The single landed BBC Introducing East Midlands’ Track of the Week being called “a tune and a half, an incredible track”, reinforcing Sophie’s powerhouse vocals and emotionally driven lyricism. She is now set to release the full My Room Made Public EP on the 27th August, showcasing a body work that is sure to put her on the map.
