Founded in Manchester in 2013 and lovingly maintained ever since by members: Theo Tobias, Ronan Clowes, Alex Howes and Thomas Short, Easy Kill exist somewhere in the space between melancholic DreamPop (The Antlers, Beach House) and the US Post and Alt scene (Interpol, Slint, Explosions in the Sky). They’re interested in the inevitable disconnect which occurs when people try to communicate, but are dragged down by their inescapable personal flaws.
Why We Love
Why We Love are a sibling fronted indie pop band from the South West. They exploded onto the Bristol scene in May 2014 with their debut single 'Patina', and found their feet playing sold-out shows with Wolf Alice, Slow Club, Teleman & Wave Pictures.
The band are instantly recognisable for their charming brand of sparkly guitar pop, bittersweet lyrics and blood harmonies, all showcased in energetic live shows. The release of their irresistibly summery single ‘All Good Things Must Drown’ confirmed the band’s status as one of Bristol’s most up and coming acts.
Music to make you dance, sing and cry.
At just 16 years, Preston based songwriter Pip Hall is an emerging talent with a hugely exciting future ahead of her. Her debut single 'Devil You Don't' garnered attention from Huw Stephens (Radio 1) and John Kennedy (Radio X) as well as key tastemaker blogs like The Line Of Best Fit and Goldflakepaint who took notice at the teenager’s gorgeous vocal and keen ear for lush sonic textures.
Growing up in the suburbs outside Atlanta, Caroline Lazar started on music early; picking up the piano at the age of four (her teacher used to paint her nails different colours to correspond with the piano keys) before moving on classical saxophone and later guitar so she could replicate the country and bluegrass music upon which she was raised.
After starting high school and off the back of a particularly painful break up the teenager started songwriting by combining the heartbreak inspired poetry which she’d been writing to her considerable music talents.
