★ Cowboy Flying Saucer 

Cowboy Flying Saucer are a post-punk band spawned from Walthamstow. An experimental vehicle for sonic fun and adventure. Influences include time, space, electricity, tardigrades, God Saves the Earth Flying Saucer Foundation, the Middle Ages, smoke blackened paper, spring reverb, hypnosis, isolation, beer, celestial bodies, insects, rebounding objects, internal ramblings and dreams.

★ Barbican Estate ★

Barbican Estate formed in Tokyo in 2019 and consists of Kazuki Toneri, Miri and Koh Hamada. They’ve consistently played shows in the Tokyo underground scene along with releasing an EP and three singles in 2020. They released their debut album Way Down East in winter 2021. Barbican Estate uses drones, psychedelic soundscapes, driving rhythms, and vivid lyricism to create their massive sound.

★ Big Dipper ★

Based out of London via Atlanta, Big Dipper released their self-titled debut album in April last year. Recorded in Hackney, it was a collection of stamping rock ‘n’ roll glamour, bringing to mind everything from MC5 to Jonathan Richman. Now expanded to a four-piece band, the band released their brilliantly strutting track “Just Love” followed by recent single “Moving On”.

★ Restless Taxis ★

Restless Taxis are an alternative three-piece band from London fronted by Michael Asukyle. They released their debut single “Migraine” at the end of last year and cite influences such as Sonic Youth, Stereolab, Fugazi and Dinosaur Jr. Sometimes loud, sometimes quiet.

★ Weekend Punks ★

Written and recorded between Southampton and Reykjavik, Weekend Punks play surf pop, but with relatively little experience of surf or sun. Reverb on everything, distortion on most things, and a nostalgia for places and times never visited.

★ Beneather ★

Beneather is BAFTA nominated composer Lewis Young. Sad, ambient, dreampop submerged in gently fuzzy tape loops. Sunken broadcasts of half recalled memories. Distant, partial and obscured.
