Based out of Zürich, Switzerland, Annie Taylor formed back in 2016. After a series of singles and well-received 2019 EP, the band’s sound shifted away from the rock-tinged pop into what they describe as “grunge psychedelic-rock”. The band’s progress was showcased on their 2020 debut album, Sweet Mortality, a record about “realising how fragile life is and appreciating a beautiful moment.” Having shared stages with the likes of L.A. Witch and FEWS, as well as performing a string of festivals across Europe, the band have become a potent live force, merging old favourites with an exciting hint of their upcoming second album.
A self-described goth Springsteen, Ben Maier is a rock ’n’ roller based out of East London. After a number of well-received singles, last year he released his debut EP, Welcome to My Nightmare, a collection of brilliant riffs, breakneck drum beats and punk-tinged vocals nodding to the likes of The Cars and The Birthday Party. With a burgeoning reputation for his raucous live show, Ben Maier is not to be missed.
