FURLINED

Rich vocals, soaring hooks and lush, swooning cello are the defining features of Furlined, a band that blend country-blues influences with English pop sensibilities. Formed by singer-songwriter Neil Crossley and cellist Tegan Everett, Furlined have released two critically acclaimed albums: Love Comes In Canisters and Win A Dream Wedding.

"Songwriter Neil Crossley has one of those winning, strong yet gentle Jackie Leven / Richard Hawley baritones that do male vulnerability beautifully,” said Mojo in its four-star review of Win A Dream Wedding, while Clash magazine called it ‘A charming and individual album of rare depth’.

In June 2018 Furlined released new EP Pinot Grigio Queen on Concave Music. Their third album //Princeton In The Distance// is due for release in February 2019.

SHE ROBOT + Filaments + Fourth Engine + Holly Abraham + DJ Cactus County

Picture2-1.png

Suzy Condrad aka She Robot has debuted her brand-new EP 7 Bells and Miro Magazine’s Madeline Royle says; “She Robot has successfully honed and established a distinctive personal sound and style which is prominent and inimitable in the genre of electronica.”

The EP 7 Bells was produced by Mike Bennett, who has worked with the likes of Ian Brown, The Fall and Toyah Wilcox, and was released on Northern Quarter Records last month.

Recorded in her Bristol basement, the four-track EP cannot easily be pigeonholed into one genre. The songs are poetic and well-written throughout, with each one drawing from different genres of music.

The leading track, 7 Bells throws you in at the deep end with strong electronic beats, sonic synths and an air of dystopia. Suzy has a hypnotic tone to her voice that her music blends with effortlessly

Breakdown is classic 80’s upbeat bop and a definite dance-floor must have. The technical reverberations are created using a looping system using combining electronic sounds with musical instruments and anything she can get her hands on –she uses keyboards, beat-boxes and even glass bottles. This track exhibits her passion for inventing new and innovative sounds. She describes herself as a ‘one-woman band for the 21st century,’

This rising DIY artist has been described as ‘one to watch’ by Louder Than War. She Robot began busking on the streets of Camden to performing her distinctive live act at venues and festivals across the UK. Condrad has already self-released two albums, She of Little Faith and Street Repeat.

We Never Broke the Window is stripped back compared to her other tracks. Condrad pairs her signature electronica with raw whistling. The song has a fairy-tale atmosphere to it with her warm, gentle vocals. The song introduces stronger drum beats and sonic wails taking Suzy back to her signature electronica style.

The final song on the EP, Don’t Look Down blends synth-pop sounds behind Condrad’s smooth, ethereal voice. This track is an easy listen, tranquil and a solid end to this eclectic EP.

Suzy Condrad chose the name She Robot to reflect her suspicions that ‘artificial intelligence will relatively soon take over the world*,’ that is if she doesn’t get there first.

The album is an exceptional creation from the Bristol singer. She Robot has successfully honed and established a distinctive personal sound and style which is prominent and inimitable in the genre of electronica. Her gentle but driving vocals blended with the electronic compositions is something that will set her aside from the rest and take her far.

ROSE McDOWALL & BAND + NEW HAUNTS

https://rosemcdowall.bandcamp.com
http://nightschoolrecords.com
http://www.stereogramrecordings.co.uk

Following the break-up of Strawberry Switchblade at the end of the 80s, Rose McDowall embarked on a celebrated career in the post-industrial music scene. A member of Current 93 during their purple patch and a guest on records by artists as diverse as Psychic TV, Felt, Coil and Nurse with Wound, McDowall’s status as the unofficial queen and muse of the underground is well deserved.

After the recording of several demos which resulted in the ‘Cut With The Cake Knife’ album (Night School/Sacred Bones, 2015), McDowall formed Sorrow to further explore her interest in psychedelic, folk music. Considerably darker in tone than Strawberry Switchblade, but still resplendent in McDowall’s angelic, heartfelt vocal, ‘Under the Yew Possessed’ is a cult album that belies a classic pop song writing sensibility. Issued in a limited gold vinyl edition for Record Store Day 2018, ‘Under the Yew Possessed’ enjoys a full Night School reissue later this year (August) followed swiftly by ‘Gem’(October) a new album of recordings with Canadian musician Shawn Pinchbeck.

Now working with a new live band comprising of several members of Scotland’s ever burgeoning music scene featuring Russel Burn ex of Fire Engines/WIN/Spectorbullets and Jeremy Thoms ex of Revillos/Strawberry Tarts and currently The Cathode Ray amongst them.
Rose will be playing select dates in the UK and Europe in October.

Support - NEW HAUNTS

New Haunts is a vocal/electronic solo project from Bristol, UK which contrasts the jarring with the serene. Combining elements of post-punk, early industrial, goth and synthpop with soft ambient synths, arresting yet melodic vocals, discordance and mechanical beats, the result is a hypnotic rush of darkwave summoned against a hard-hitting and eclectic rhythmic backdrop. Her debut album Worlds Left Behind was released in May 2018.

“For us one of the best albums in the genre for a long time. Listen in, let yourself be enchanted.” - Dark Life Experience

"That monster of a synth bass line instantly grabs you and drags you to the stake while tribal drums put you in a trance. “Waves” by New Haunts doesn't take any prisoners but puts you in the midst of an electronic fire ritual. Above you the high priestess calls for the gods to accept your sacrifice with the most intense vocals" - Rule Of Three

"A great example of darkwave that's both emotional and experimental" - Peek-A-Boo Magazine

and  DEAD SPACE CHAMBER MUSIC
Dead Space Chamber Music, are a dark ambient / ritual / gothic / ethereal / neoclassical trio of cello, guitar and voice, based in Bristol, UK. 
Taking the focused intensity of ‘chamber music’, they expand on it to create a deeply atmospheric sound. Pieces move between shimmering veils of fine textured sound, to heavily saturated effect-laden drones incorporating finely crafted treatments, often infused with vocal field-recording based sound-scapes.
