Goldheart Assembly

Goldheart Assembly


Named after a Guided by Voices song, Goldheart Assembly formed in 2008 through a love of harmonic, British pop music and not, as a bizarre internet rumour has it, whilst working as zookeepers at Whipsnade Wild Animal Park.
The release of their debut album was followed by shows with the likes of Black Mountain and Low Anthem while their own headline shows culminated in a sold-out performance at London’s Scala in April 2011. The start of 2011 also saw them play their first U.S shows, including a slot at that year’s SxSW Festival and make a high-profile appearance on the Last Call with Carson Daly TV show.
Beginning Long Distance Song Effects in 2011, the album was shaped over a period of two years as the 25 tracks they initially recorded in London were gradually whittled down between trips back and forth to Lucerne where they recorded with Swiss musician / producer Tobi Gmur, who they’d met on an earlier European tour.
Having completed a low-key residency at London’s Sebright Arms and European tour with Band of Horses at the end of 2012, Goldheart Assembly will be shortly announcing a U.K. headline tour.
Goldheart Assembly are: Jake Bowser (keyboards, vocals), James Dale (lead vocals, bass), Nicky Francis (drums, vocals), Kyle Hall (guitar) and John Herbert (lead vocals, guitar).

The Bronze Medal

The Bronze Medal


Formed after a 6 week back-packing trip through Southern Europe and Scandinavia during the summer of 2009 - vocalists Chris Hillier and Robin Southwell funded their way round by busking. However the defining moment came after successfully busking in one of the older parts of Stockholm, paying for food and accommodation as result, which Chris describes as a defining moment musically for the pair. Whilst away they wrote a batch of songs that went on to become the bands early repertoire. Once home they were joined by fellow musicians from the local Bristol scene, Rory O’Gorman and Mike Barnett and set to work in the studio.

DeepSeaArcade

Deep Sea Arcade


Led by vocalist Nic McKenzie and bassist Nick Weaver, Deep Sea Arcade combine their love of ‘60s beat, surf and psychedelic pop with 80’s new wave, and 90’s indie. McKenzie, the son of an Australian foreign correspondent and the grandson of a senior MI6 officer (yes, a real life ‘60s era James Bond) spent his childhood and adolescent years in London where he became engrossed in the world of Brit pop and trip hop. Both styles had a lasting effect. After relocating back to Sydney, McKenzie re-united with a teenage Weaver at high school. They instantly bonded over shared influences, penned dozens of songs and then experimented with every sort of sound in their bedroom DIY studio for several years before finding their perfect counterparts in drummer Carlos Adura and guitarists Simon Relf and Tim Chamberlain.

“Think Lily Allen sitting on Amy Winehouse’s face whilst she’s shredding a Fender jag like Hendrix, and then there’s all these blokes around the pair of them cheering them on, F**king wondrous!”

It's A Musical

It's A Musical


Comprising Swedish-born Ellinor Blixt and German Robert Kretzschmar, It’s A Musical are the Berlin-based band looking to inject a little colour into the music industry with their unashamedly joyous music. “We want to be a fun band, to have fun rather than be funny,” they say. “We were both a bit tired of being so serious.”

DegaBreaks

Dega Breaks


Four met against the undertow of everything west to Ruislip, Ealing and the suburbs beyond. In the shadow of the rotten geometry of west London and the heavy, heavy history below, they put together an ensemble of all their favourite instruments - Moog synths, Jaguar guitars, Simmons kits, String machines, Wasps, SH101 and TB303s. Then they just had to work out how to play them.
