Our outspoken hero in pink, Girli is heading to Wychwood festival this year and we for one can not wait. She’s been delivering hit after hit for quite a while now (*cough* Not That Girl *cough*) and most recently, last week, she released a track starring an unlikely, yet attention-grabbing collaboration between herself and none other than Lethal Bizzle. Listen to ‘Feel OK’ and get practicing your slut drop.
Trudy and The Romance
Trudy and the Romance had one hell of a 2016, ground-breaking tracks with riffs powerful enough to blow your socks off, a whole load of gigs (which we’ve really been missing so far this year), many a funny tweet and not to mention getting none other than Spring King’s Tarek to produce on of their tracks. 2017 is just getting going for them too and in our opinion any opportunity to see them live is one that shouldn’t be missed.
INHEAVEN’s trajectory has been nothing but skyward for quite some time now. Each release rocketing them forward more and more, first with ‘Treats’, and then more recently with ‘Vultures’. They’re so very clearly destined for greatness, why would you give up an opportunity to see them?
This duo recently released their debut EP Gut Me Like An Animal back in March, proving to us once and for all that they have some serious talent between them. Their music is infectious and most notably, incredibly honest. It’s no wonder that they’ve been racking up the attention at quite a speedy rate.
Southampton’s Laurel has been treating us to delightful indie-pop sounds for many a year now and thankfully, that doesn’t look like it’ll be stopping anytime soon. Laurel will make for some excellent festival bopping.
Let’s Eat Grandma
The duo that are anything but uninteresting. They’ve raised quite the eyebrow in the short time that they’ve been making music together, almost splitting opinions as well as marmite does. You definitely won’t be bored during their set, don’t miss the opportunity to form your own opinion on their alternative sounds and dramatic performance style.
The Shimmer Band
Bristol’s The Shimmer Band have been carefully and confidently making themselves known in the indie music world since their first appearance on the Bristol scene back in 2014. Classing themselves as psychedelic power rockers, The Shimmer Band have an enormous amount of energy, an almost unbelievable amount… that is until you see it for yourself.
Atlantic Record’s Zak Abel is bringing his smooth and soulful pop sounds to Cheltenham Racecourse this year and it’s set to be quite the performance. He dropped his album last month that’s had more than a warm reception online and otherwise and if the sheer quality of that is anything to go by, then we’re all in for a treat.
Fan of Mystery Jets? Then you might notice something familiar about Bunny. Flanagan has gone it alone on this new musical project, what we’ve heard so far is all a bit dreary, in the most appealing way. Flanagan is just warming up, this will be one of the first opportunities to see Bunny live and we’re excited and extremely curious.
This week their EP ‘Kewali’ will be gracing our ears and no doubt also our eyes, as no doubt they’ll be some visual animated treats to go with it if the video for ‘Mixed Blessings’ is anything to go by. Keep your eye out for it and that will provide more than enough reason to check them out at Wychwood.
