ROOK & THE RAVENS - Rook and The Ravens’ alternative rock bristles with dark intent amidst a Technicolor landscape populated by tough guitar pop, shiny harmonies and several stories of keyboards built on an unwavering rhythm foundation. 2009’s self-released debut album Sixteen Holes in Sixteen Souls set the scene for the new band, marrying pop hooks with a brooding melancholy.

MOULETTES - A truly special live prospect. Members of Moulettes have recently performed and/or recorded with Mumford & Sons, Seasick Steve, John Paul Jones, Paloma Faith, Bonobo and Paul Heaton of The Beautiful South. Ex-Moulette Ted Dwane, now of Mumford & Sons returned to the fold in summer 2011 to help record the band’s second album, The Bear’s Revenge, out now and garnering excellent reviews from the likes of The Guardian, FT and Q, Songlines, Saga (!) and R2 magazines amongst others.

DARK DARK HORSE - Communion’s new favourites Dark Dark Horse are the collaboration between producer Jamie Ward (ex Kyte/Current Maybeshewill) and singer James Stafford (kids in cars). Jamie writes the music and James turns these electronics doodles into fully fledged songs. After posting some initial demos online the power of the internet began to propel the bands music round the world.

TAWSE - We are a band made up of a joke; an Englishman, Irishman, Scotsman and Welshman. And that’s all you need to know.
