THE FRAMPTON SISTERS
Singing and songwriter sisters who grew up in the Orkneys reached the finals of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2018, as well as performing at the acclaimed Cambridge Folk Festival. The sisters’ debut single Birds Of A Feather received acclaim from numerous well-regarded publications including Folk Radio UK, Americana UK and Songwriting Magazine to name a few, as well as BBC Radio London’s Robert Elms recently booked the Framptons for a live radio session on his show. They’re a throwback to that Laurel Canyon organic close-harmony sound of the Carpenters, Simon and Garfunkel, Joni Mitchell and Passenger.
A new release, Let Me Hold Your Hand is out now.
MATTY LONG AND THE LOVEGUNS
"Turn off your mind, relax and float downstream". Timothy Leary's "The Psychedelic Experience" gives the perfect introduction into how to experience the LoveGuns music. The South London trio bring a mix of funky bass-lines, psychedelic lyrics and roaring guitar solos, resulting in a modern twist on a retro sound. Formed in summer 2018, Matty, Gommo, Rhod and George have played at some infamous venues, including O2 Academy Islington, Cafe 1001 and 93 Feet East to name a few.
Erika Severyns missed the bus to Belgium in 2018, when she was on a city trip to London. She had never felt rooted to begin with – as a young girl she had moved from Russia to Belgium and grown used to feeling torn between places. Her introspective songwriting and folky melodies help her navigate the space between drifting and getting lost.
Mister Resistor embarked on his live modular music journey in 2019, setting roots in London. He has received praise from the burgeoning Electronic Music Open Mic (EMOM) scene. Mister Resistor featured on Resonance Extra FM, discussing the electronic music scene and in particular modular music and its growth into the contemporary music world. With decades of experience behind him Mister Resistor explores new styles and ways of approaching live electronic music.
Improvising from a minimally pre-prepared start, each of his sets are dynamically unique and fresh, fusing house, techno and ambient genres - composed, programmed and controlled at the instant of performance - into pieces that can never be identically repeated. He performs using a one of a kind modular synthesiser with limitless sonic and musical possibilities. Come and explore this journey with him.
