A band of serendipitous formation that produce an original sound that is gaining popularity on the circuit. Their complementary talents give a twist to their music whilst combining indie origins with funk. Influences range from Queens Of The Stone Age to The Stone Roses, and as such, the band garner a range of comparisons after each show. Their shows have become known for their energetic crowds with impromptu chants. Having grown in confidence through regular London shows, the band have built up a loyal fanbase. L Sicario have released a number of singles and will be releasing new music throughout the year.
We are two music students from Portugal and based in London. Originally we had different goals for our music careers, one (Catarina) being an electronic music producer and DJ and the other (Lourenço) more inclined to playing in rock bands. Since we live together, we then decided to merge our styles and see what would the outcome be, resulting in a really great musical chemistry between the two of us. We like to say our style is like a cross pollination between electronic music and guitar solos
Hard-hitting rock duo Automatic Panic deal in monster riffs, killer hooks, and massive beats. They promise to be your delirium mechanics – do not miss the hysteria.
My Everest are a British 5-Piece band who combine heavy riffs, melodic hooks and an on-stage charisma unrivalled for a band this fresh. My Everest — made up of vocalist Connor Sturt, guitarist Sam South, bassist Eddie Bennett, drummer Joe Corderoy and keys player James Pirot — began writing together in 2018 and quickly gained a reputation for their formidable live shows. In May 2019, they issued their debut single, ‘Down With the Pressure’ to great acclaim and BBC airplay.
The band released their debut EP with a SOLD OUT show at the O2 Islington Academy2 in February 2020. A tour was planned but the country was locked down. We cannot wait to welcome them back this summer with new music.
As an indie-rock outfit with a little bit of blues and prog mixed in, Ilona Mahieu (pronounced ‘i-low-nah my-ooh/may-ooh’) wants to give you a little bit of everything. With warm dreamy guitar sounds, rich vocals, poetic lyrics, and drum and bass lines that pack a punch, this is an experience you won’t want to miss.
“A genre-defying group with a growing following of their energetic, eclectic sound.”
“The group showcase their natural talent to carry one along a dynamic musical journey without being too overwhelming. Exquisite and impassioned, Ilona Mahieu is breaking boundaries with their poetic lyricism and engrossing style.”
– Nicole Mendes, The Other Side Reviews
