We welcome this brilliant electro pop artist to headline the 2nd show of the week, who has the melodies and beats to beat the best of them. 

Dakota is the exciting indie / alternative / pop artist signed to the emerging independent London based label 70Hz Recordings. Dakota’s first musical offering is her interpretation of Son House’s rendition of the 1930’s gospel blues call, ‘John The Revelator’. Her fresh sound and distinctive vocal tone make her one emerging artist to keep an eye on in 2015.

Kaitlin Riegel

Portland, OR-born Kaitlin Riegel first discovered her talents for singing and songwriting, described by The 405 as “her powerful voice and emotional lyrics that hit like a one-two punch”. She recorded her first EP in Berlin, with Australian producer Simon Berkelman (Art vs science, Wolfmother, Temper Trap, etc).

After performing at the 2014 MUSEXPO in Los Angeles, Kaitlin began working on her new material and enlisted the help of Moshi Moshi Record's (known for Hot Chip, Bloc Party, Florence + The Machine, Kate Nash, etc.), folktronica artist and producer, James Yuill.

Clash Music as “a huge step forward, with Kaitlin really seeming to find her voice” 
Wonderland Magazine proclaimed was a “melancholic ballad, with the chords, melody and percussion simply serving as a frame for Kaitlin’s haunting harmonies, like a choral choir, they echo and the unusual but likeable tone of her voices shines through.”

Kaitlin is now ready to unveil the first taste from her third EP, '41.9', in the form of her new single'Fluorescent Lighting'.

NOVA TWINS (headlining)

Sistas in sonic mayhem, killer bass lines and nail you to the wall hooks, Amy (vocals/guitar) and Georgia (bass/backing vocals) like to write tunes, play shows, and wear custom made clothes and stack heels - all at the same time. Georgia’s thundrous bass and unique combination of FX pedals underpins Amy’s urbane lyrics and unique rockin’ yowl, theirs is rifftastic music - serious girl power motivation. 

You can hear a hint of bands like the White Stripes and maybe peak period Prodigy in there and the bass end might reference modern urban styles - live they’re joined by one of a crew of hot funky drummers they know who understand how to meld edgy beats with pure stadium widescreen - the end result live being party bangers controlled by two pairs of stack heels hopscotching around their pedal boards to create a fabulous new left of pop sound for the 21st century.

Perfectly crafted indie electro pop with synth.

<<<<Monday 29th - Bloom Twins | Hvmns | Tom Bem>>>>

Growing up in a small Ukrainian town outside Kiev, this remarkably gifted pair were immersed in music before escaping its confines, fiercely determined to head into the outside world and make an impression. 
They moved to London to improve their art and the culture they found shocked them.

Coming from such a different background, one would fear that they might become enchanted by the big city life, but instead they felt disconnected to the materialistic, narcissistic lifestyles of most people their age, and grew more and more committed to each other and their music.
This 18 year olds have got a Steely drive behind the gossamer intimacy of the music. Having already mastered keyboards, flute and harmonica, they are trying to master as many other instruments as they can, including guitar and drums to go with the electronic beats. 
On June 20th Bloom Twins released their first track "Fahrenheit" which quickly brought them to attention of various music and fashion spreads of such magazines like Bullet magazine, Music and Musicians, Artist Direct, Paradigm, Flaunt, Wonderland, Vogue Italy, Russia and Ukraine etc.


Brand new hot off the press duo Hvmns is the 3 year old brainchild of producer, writer Guus Hoevenaars (Scissor Sisters/ The Pierces). After working for years in Atlanta and being inspired to start an act, he then moved to the UK and spent months writing/producing acts and searching for the perfect vocalist to complete his duo and after attending a London showcase he found 22 year old Swedish powerhouse singer Moa.

Armed with some exciting material the duo have only played a handful of shows but are already getting industry recognition. With some great plans ahead they're currently working on their EP and will be releasing their debut video to Lead track 'Dirt And Grime' end of May. 

Hvmns are ones to watch and a band that you have to see live, with enchanting slick vocals, tight sounds and a performance that will leave you wanting more.

London based electro pop singer songwriter brings his talents to this top line up. Exceeding expectations at irregular intervals.
