What's on Next...
We’re very sorry to say that Shrinking Violets have had to pull out and have been replaced by Carpool Conversation.
Originally formed with the idea of being a straight up Ramones/Misfitsesque punk band late in 2013, Violent Chimes shifted their sound to a hybrid of rock and roll, post-rock and post-hardcore and – in their own excellent coinage – post-crud sweaterwave. They start with the full-octane sounds of Fugazi and Deftones, and ladle on some melodic sauce to help the whole thing slip down. Although, a couple of beers won’t do any harm, either, we advise.
Carpool Conversation are a 3 piece London/Cork based outfit who play Alternative/Indie/Rock. The band's self-releases have been played and applauded by Lauren Laverne,Gideon Coe,Tom Robinson on BBC6music and Irish National radio to date. Carpool Conversation have a strong DIY approach where they write,record and produce their own records. 'From psych groove to indie, punk to alternative rock, the listener is constantly left guessing, with upbeat, jiving guitars, and drums that have a mind of their own. From the unique vocals, to modern scat-instrumentals, the eccentricity of this music keeps the listener intrigued throughout, Carpool Conversation certainty do not play safe.' - Right Chord music band of the week
A young singer who splits her time between her native Hook Norton and Leeds, and who splits her phenomenal musical talent between elegant folky tunes and K-Pop euphoria. “Reminds me of a young Kate Bush” BBC; “Relentlessly upbeat, one great song follows another, catchy tunes with straightforward yet personal lyrics like the poignant ‘Tongue Tied’” Nightshift; “Man, the voice, the songwriting, the music, it’s all so mature, so age-weathered, so, so . . . so damn perfect” The Ripple Effect
