The Bulletproof Bomb + Polar States + Jessie Lee Burn + Jess Morgan - Thur 11th Sep 2014
Discovery 2 has teamed up with IMC (International Music Community) to present some of the UK’s hottest emerging bands and singers. The Bulletproof Bomb with their raucous edgy guitar driven sound, stadium worthy anthemic indie rock from Liverpool band Polar States, Jessie Lee Burn with her gritty London charm and acoustic folk troubadour Jess Morgan with her beautifully crafted songs plus Dj AKW.
The Bulletproof Bomb are five 18-year-old South Londoners armed with guitars, infectious songs and a very exciting future. Their raucous edgy guitar driven sound has gained unprecedented attention including support by Zane Lowe on Radio 1 and bookings to perform at Bestival and Reading & Leeds Festivals this year. Their second single, 'Five Green Bottles', will be released on September 8th and comes produced by Rory Attwell (The Vaccines, Yuck and The Palma Violets).
“It's not every night that you see a band perform with such a ferocious intensity that The Bulletproof Bomb do and not only that but their set is full to the brim with very, very catchy tunes. From start to finish they are entertaining, raucous and most importantly, believable.” - Ibiza Rocks
Polar States are a four-piece guitar band who in the space of 6 short months have churned out a stadium worthy set from the confines of a Toxteth council flat. Impressing and consequently working with Jon Withnall, a Grammy Award winning producer, the lads have crafted songs as varied as the emotions they are charged with. Their debut single, 'Concrete', comes out on October 6th.
"You find an escape in each other through a shared state of highs and lows. That’s more powerful than anything money can buy. Polar States is just that. Four everyday lads with a dream." - Paul Tong
North London soulstress Jessie Lee Burn has spent many years honing her craft and mastering her distinctive sound; immersing herself in different genres from blues and folk to dubstep. She has performed at Rough Trade, Jazz Cafe, the Troubadour and festivals including Secret Garden Party and Standon Calling. Jessie has recently finished recording her illustrious new EP, 'Green', which weaves through a myriad of colourful, catchy and sometimes sombre masterpieces authentically written from the heart.
“Her unique voice courts the influences of North American greats such as Aretha Franklin, Joni Mitchell and Billie Holiday, whilst retaining the gritty charm of her London accent.” - Hackney Picturehouse
Songs that tell stories, claw-hammer-like guitar playing and a truly unique voice that binds the package together, acoustic folk troubadour Jess Morgan from Norwich has recently been championed by new music DJs Steve Lamacq, Tom Robinson and Mark Radcliffe. Released in April this year, Jess' new album ‘Langa Langa’ showcases a wind-fall of sizzling new songs and rhythmic guitar playing. Jess has recently been touring in Germany and Belgium and comes with lavish praise bestowed upon her following a recent performance at Cambridge Folk Festival.
“Jess Morgan is a fluent guitarist and her musicianship dovetails well with her clever and understated songwriting” - Martin Chilton - The Guardian (Folk music: 10 fine albums for summer 2014)
’Every so often you come across a little gem like this!" - Steve Lamacq - BBC Radio 2
