Soot Sprite are a three piece from Exeter, Devon. Originally started by the first EP Elise Cook wrote and recorded in her loft room in 2018, the band grew as the live performance required more musicians. Now with their third EP the outfit comprises of Elise on guitar and vocals, Sean Mariner on bass and Tom Gilbert on drums.
With influences such as Mannequin Pussy and Phoebe Bridgers, their most recent sound has gotten the attention of BBC 6 Music, receiving multiple plays on the station from DJs Steve Lamacq and Gideon Coe. The band have toured the UK and Europe fairly extensively right up until the 2020 lockdown and plan to do much more of that on the other side of things in 2021.
South-London based singer, songwriter and producer, Lyys, delivers beautifully melodic and dreamy indiepop inspired by sprawling influences from Cocteau Twins and Camera Obscura to Caroline Polachek and The Japanese House. Walking the line between the bedroom studio and the dancefloor.
