RUMOUR CUBES —
Rumour Cubes are a six-piece instrumental band that fuse violin & viola, guitars, electronics and visual media into extraordinary cinematic soundscapes.
Working with poets and film-makers and writing custom music software to sync videos to their live performances, the band construct a multimedia experience where dense ambient textures and intricate rhythms underlie beautiful melodies highlighted by violin and viola.
Rumour cubes combine thw post rock sensibilities of bands such as Godspeed You! Black Emperor, whilst also challenging a sense of electronica akin to that of Bonobo. A true audio, visual experience to behold.
HIGH TIDE 15:47 —
A fuzzy twist on influences from the shoegaze and dream-pop scenes of the late 80s and early 90s. Following in the footsteps of scene purveyors My Bloody Valentine, High Tide have taken shoegaze and put their distinctly northern stamp on the genre. Hot off a sold out e.p launch in Newcastle, the band is on the path to becoming one of the hottest names in the northern music scene.
TEN STICKS —
Newcastle guitar and drum duo Ten Sticks play drone-heavy, semi-improvised post-rock music. When they aren’t hyphenating terms to describe their music, they enjoy drinking coffee, referencing classic episodes of the Simpsons and making loud and quiet noises somewhere between Tortoise and Mono. Featuring members of Grandfather Birds and Nately’s Whore’s Kid Sister.
IMMY WILLIAMS —
Immy Williams at just 18 certainly has considerable amounts of
talent. Immy has already written a number of well-crafted songs that display an emotional awareness that belie her youth. She possesses a voice that alternates between soaring heights and fragile delicacy.’ Recently she has supported the likes of Little Comets, The Lake Poets, Lisbon and the legendary Martha Reeves and the Vandellas. Ahead of releasing her first single ‘The Ocean’, Immy sold out her first headline gig at The Mining Institute in Newcastle.
